The Man Behind The Ikaika

 

Alan

Alan Ichinose, 

Alan was born August 27, 1963 in Honolulu Hawaii. At the age of 19 he started his bodybuilding career. After speaking to a friend in the gym he decided that he wanted a body like him. "He was ripped so I decided I wanted to workout like him." The gym gave Alan direction and stability in his life. He was close to his family but needed a direction that he could feel good about.

I was inspired by a few people in the Gym. Mike Lau, Craig Vasper, and Donald Coleman were my mentors in Bodybuilding. Alan went on to win 1984 Hawaii International, 1988 Mr. USA, The 1989 Nationals."Mr. America",

1988 Mr. Hawiian Islands, Over-all winner, 1985 Paradise Cup Over-all winner.

Alan turned professional in 1996. After an 18 year break away from bodybuilding Alan competed professionally at the Jacksonville Pro and the Europa in 2010. Alan's talents have provided the bodybuilders in Hawaii a unique look at what a true professional has to offer the bodybuilding community.
