Dear Reader,

My name is Gary Stewart.

Creator of StraightUpMuscle.com.

I’m currently 29 years old and happily married with two step children.

I’m a bodybuilding/fitness/health enthusiast and have been a student of these things all of my life.

The main purpose of this site is to help you throughout your bodybuilding/fitness/health ventures by supplying you with as much helpful information as possible.

If you have any questions at please go to the contact page and email me or if you just want to say hello that’s okay as well. 🙂

Take you time and browse around…
