BIO:

It was a tough life for Capriese Murray as a child. Son to a single mother, he would lose her at the tender age of 9 years old. Never deterred, he excelled in sports as a child and was always a muscular well built kid; which went along way protecting him from others on the mean streets of Washington Heights. Along with his athletic endeavors, Capriese was also an accomplished break dancer but due to a serious knee injury this came to an end. Soon after he would find himself going to the gym; it wasn’t really a gym but it had everything a lifter needed in that dark basement at the bottom of a rundown apartment building. Capriese would later join Elmo’s Gym and thanks to the manager he was urged to compete; he was 15 at the time. He would do a handful of shows, but after a year he became frustrated with bodybuilding and his life became girls and parties. It would be 5 years before he would return. In 1997 Capriese waa back on track and entered the New York Metropolitan Championships where he took 1st in the Middleweight class. It would be 5 more years and several shows later before he earned his pro card, but he did just that in 2004 by taking 1st at Nationals in the Heavyweight class.
