John Howie lifted in power meets and was a nationally ranked bodybuilder from the mid 1970's to the mid 1980's. An accident ended his competitive days in the '80's , but John continued on as a gym owner and one of North Carolina's best meet directors. John's Enterprise fitness center has produced many top lifters. Today John is very active in promoting our sport. As a lifter John had a 770 lb deadlift at around 220 lbs, a feat of strength which still rates high in that division.
