As a teenager, Alexandre M. Carneiro could not feed his athletic needs by playing high school volleyball. Although it is an interesting sport that takes a good amount of stamina to excel in, the rotating and spikes just didn’t cut the mustard for him. No, the young man needed something a bit more hardcore.

“I always watched action movies starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold, Jean Claude Van Damme and always admired those bodies,” remembered Carneiro. “But living in Santiago de Chile was a struggle as the culture there is very narrow minded and bodybuilding was the last thing people socially accepted.”

Originally born in Brasilia, Brazil, Carneiro was raised in Rome, Italy and moved to Chile for nine years of his life. Not willing to accept the hand that he was dealt, the fledging bodybuilder moved to the United States to attend college. “It was only then that I was truly able to express my potential for the sport of bodybuilding and build my name up in the industry.”


Four years of continuos hard work and struggle paid off for Carneiro when he placed first in both the Open and Novice categories in the 2010 NPC Axis Labs Northern Colorado Bodybuilding Championships.

In addition to being a competitive bodybuilder, Carneiro is also an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and an international model and fitness professional.

“I have big plans for my future and one day hope to make it big,” he concluded.

Judging by what he has accomplished in such a short period of time, only a fool would doubt him.

‘This is Your Magazine’ is merely one of the reasons why MuscleSport Mag is far and wide better than any other publication out there. What other media outlet features the up and coming athlete, the same as if he or she was a professional in their industry? This is the place to get your face and story out there, and who knows what opportunities may arise from that type of exposure?
