One of the world's most symmetrical and defined natural physique stars, Gennaro first started competing in bodybuilding in 1986 as a teenager and will compete again in 2017. He is still in the best shape of his life at the young age of 49.
He is known as ʻTrainer to the Trainersʼ having mentored and coached many successful fitness professionals. Gennaro is a former 1989 NABBA Mr. Australia and more recently a 2015 WFF Mr. Universe finalist. He was the first athlete to represent Australia as a world natural professional (WNBF) bodybuilder in 1997 in NYC.
Gennaro was born in Naples Italy and moved to Melbourne, Australia with his family when he was 9 months old. His father Mario Ferra is a master chef and cooked and taught all over the world. Gennaroʼs skills as a personal chef and nutritional consultant were further enhanced through his fatherʼs mentorship.
Gennaro moved to NYC in 1997, after an editor of a fitness magazine invited him to compete in a series of natural bodybuilding competitons and now he has dual Australian and American citizenship.
