Steve's focus on health has been well-documented. Always a believer in natural fitness, he has written books, contributed numerous magazine articles to various publications over the years and was an advocate of banning the use of chemicals in the sport of bodybuilding.
Because of his focus on health and fitness, Steve retained an excellent physique, sense of vitality and energy throughout his life. When he could no longer work in his chosen profession or indulge in the sport of bodybuilding due to an accident, he found other ways of staying fit.
