Mario da Silva, a former Mr. Uruguay (1968), Mr. Argentina, & 1977 Mr. World (Best Poser) is a true Golden Era bodybuilding icon who shared the stage with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane, Franco Columbu and other icons of the sport during its “golden” years. For decades, da Silva has been guiding health-conscious men and women in the art of “elegant” body conditioning. Rather than striving for a quick fix and relying on synthetics and steroids to build muscle or lose fat, da Silva emphasizes the importance of maintaining a balanced lifestyle and a healthy, visually pleasing physique. This includes not only a variety of exercises and activities, but the kind of values which prioritize respect and decency in all facets of daily life. Mario has devoted his life to body elegance & health and today is still a personal trainer and an Old School Labs Brand Ambassador, which ensures that his message and legacy continue.
