Nick Santonastasso. You laugh at me because I’m different...
Nick Santonastasso is an American bodybuilder and the CEO of Raw Mettle Motivations, Fitness Model, Motivational Speaker, and Youtuber.
Nick Santonastasso was born with Hanhart syndrome, a rare congenital disorder that results in undeveloped limbs. In high school, as a member of the wrestling team, he opted to have part of his right arm amputated so that he could compete more effectively. Now, he uses a custom prosthetic limb to help him use traditional weightlifting equipment.
Despite the obvious limitations, Santonastasso is pursuing a career in bodybuilding, a continuation of his passion for fitness that began when he was a high school wrestler.
