About the Documentary:
Beyond the Zone is a feature/documentary of how a 55 year old amateur powerlifter has defied the odds by setting two World Weightlifting Endurance Records at 53, and 54 years old and is positioned to attempt another world record in 2013 at 55 – all drug free!
It’s a unique story of ground breaking “drug free” fitness training, teamwork, hard work, focus and inspiration developed to prove that performance enhancing drugs are not needed to reach your fitness – sports goals at any age!
All the funds from this campaign will be used to produce a 30 minute feature-documentary on the process of training as a “total athlete” and utilizing ground breaking training techniques to break World Weightlifting Records drug free!
