Dr SALVATORE SOLIMENO
Something about me…
My name’s Salvatore Solimeno. I was born in Pagani (SA) on October 3rd, 1975. I live in Pompeii. My passion for bodybuilding is born when I was young.
At the age of 17 I started doing weights because I wanted to improve my body. It has been like love at first sight; this passion grew up immediately a lot, gym world really fascinated me.
The sculpted bodies of those athletes, demigods, on the magazines interested me a lot; so, after only seven months, I witnessed at the first competition of bodybuilding. It was March 29th, 1993.
Time was passing and I noticed that mine was a talent and that my constant diligence was fully rewarded by the results. I didn’t think to compete at all, even if I worked out and feed myself as I were an athlete, until when, in may 1st of 1999, my trainer at the time (Pasquale Cavallaro) asked me, to incite me, if I was able to compete.
I accepted the challenge, the competition was Mr Italia in Sapri. In just eight weeks I trained myself for the competition and, thanks to Pasquale, I shown a good body shape, so my first success came.
I won in my category and suddenly my first contract as testimonial for integrators came. Ultimate Italia was the integrators’ brand, and today I’m still bounded to it. Since then, I’ve never stopped competing.
Twelve years ago, thanks to this passion, I decided to open my first gym. Step by step I built my little empire which I named Body House Fit Club. I had many satisfactions, but it wasn’t enough so I started studying biology.
In the meantime, my enterprise grew up and my presence became indispensable, so I abandoned my studies. Then I changed my studies, choosing Food technologies, but I wasn’t capable of managing studies, job and sport. Nevertheless, I’ve always had the attitude to realize everything I want to do and, some year after and with many sacrifices, I resumed my studies, choosing Sciences of Motoric Activities, which was more relate to mi job than the other ones.
So, after years of diligence among job, studying and competitions, I managed to graduate and obtain excellently a specialistic degree in preventive and adaptive motoric activities, biomedical address. In addition to training, I decided to study Nutrition too, at the University Federico II of Naples. Sport world has always satisfied me and allowed me to express myself as athletic coach, with satisfying results. I train a lot of guys.
I feel, first of all, an athlete and I love this sport to which I have dedicated my life. It made me become what now I am, and it teaches me to know thousand shades which allow me everyday to work and teach to the others what I learned during the years of training and studies.

Le storie delle persone che si sono affidate a me
I’m Giovanna, I’m 22 and I’m a student. I have known Salvatore at 20 and I was coming from a bad time. I’ve always suffered of hypothyroidism, that blocked my metabolism and gave me water retention. I tried a lot of diets, entrusting to wrong people, and maybe I’ve never believed in it deeply. Immediately I entrusted him and he became my coach and the person who looked after my nutrition and workout with a program made only for me. Read more
At the beginning of my itinerary I was disoriented and demotivated, but I’ve always said to me that, if a loser finds an excuse, a winner finds a way. It’s only your merit if I found the best way for me to become what I am now!
“Come back into shape in 12 weeks”? My first finish it has been going down from 105kg to 87,3kg. Maybe it took less than 12 weeks. And photos speak by themselves. Read more
