A trainer who consulted with Rob Ford as recently as Tuesday night on a health “game plan” was convicted in the United States for steroid trafficking and is currently in the midst of a 12-year ban from coaching in Canada for administering steroids.

The Toronto mayor has repeatedly said he is working with a team of health professionals following his admission of smoking crack while in a “drunken stupor.” Ford has not specified what that team includes other than to say it includes advice about his weight and he is not in an alcohol treatment program. Ford’s criminal lawyer, Dennis Morris, has said the mayor is spending up to two hours a day exercising, has revamped his diet and has received support from a medical doctor.

Valerio Moscariello, the owner of Team Body Pro Athletics, tweeted a picture Tuesday night of himself in the gym with Ford with the captions: “Toronto Mayor Rob Ford joins forces to get in shape with “Teambodypro.com” and “#teambodypro Toronto mayor Rob Ford killing him on cardio today! Man on a mission.”

On Instagram he said: “Putting Toronto mayor Rob Ford through a Valerio workout. The BodyPro training system!” The posts were deleted not long after he was contacted by the media.

The tweet was sent out under Moscariello’s alias “Valerio Mosca,” the name he uses with the Team Body Pro Athletics website, the bodybuilding supplement company Mutant Nation and on several socia media accounts including Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and Instagram.

However, Moscariello’s full name is used several times in various pages of Team Body Pro Website and in other Internet postings.

Responding to an email from the National Post asking about the steroid conviction and coaching ban, Moscariello wrote: “It was a joke picture and has been blown up for no reason. I do wish him luck. I should not have posted a joke picture like that I didn’t realize what this caused. I’m sorry. I wish [the] mayor luck on his journey.”

He declined to directly answer any questions about the conviction and ban and did not confirm if the relationship with Ford is ongoing.

However, in an earlier telephone interview Wednesday, Moscariello was enthusiastic about training the mayor, who was sweating it out on a treadmill the night before, weighing in at 336 pounds.

“He’s got the discipline and he’s got the drive. I really think he can lose the weight, but he has to give it his all. I want him to give me 100%, not even just 99%. Without 100% I won’t take him on. But if he gives me 100%, if he comes to the gym, I’ll beat him up [through a rigorous workout.] I’ll beat him up until he can’t take anymore,” Moscariello told the National Post.

“With Rob, I think the problem is what he eats. He’s on the go, he’s here and there and he doesn’t eat what he should. If Rob eats proper food, he will change. But you need to do this every day. Every day.” No amount of working out can make up for poor food choices, he said. "you are what you eat. You'd be amazed how agile he is. He knows how to move 300 pounds around easily.
His since-deleted Twitter reveals that Moscariello was speaking of training Ford as early as November 16.

He referenced training the mayor in a conversation with Canadian porn actress Nikki Benz.

“What times are your show? I’m calling Mr. Ford now,” Moscariello said to Benz on Twitter last Saturday.
“Yo, @TomayordFord, come to Whiskey A GoGo tonight. @ryanmclane and I have shots of Remy Martin waiting for you. #416,” Benz’s verified account responded.
“You seriously want me to bring him? I just started training him,” Moscariello responded.

Benz appeared at the Whiskey A Go-Go on November 14, 15 and 16, according to the adult nightclub’s webpage [Warning: link includes nudity].

There is no indication the mayor took up the invite.


Drug charges

Moscariello pleaded guilty possession with the intent to distribute anabolic steroids in October 2005, according to United States Attorney for the District of Nevada.

“Valerio Moscareillo, age 31, of Toronto, Canada, pleaded guilty in August to the felony offense. He admitted to unlawfully possessing 27 units (270 cc) of anabolic steroids, Schedule III controlled substances, and to operating a website at [www.juiceworld.com], that was accessible to the general public for the purpose of distributing these anabolic steroids,” a November 1, 2005 press release said.

“In February 2005, U.S. Postal Inspectors tracked a steroid distribution operation to the defendant’s residence in Henderson. In June 2005, law enforcement officers executed a search of the residence and seized a quantity of anabolic steroids, including Primobolon Depot, Deca Nadrolone Decanoate, and Trenbolone Acetate. They also seized “buy-owe” sheets, materials such as small bottles and syringes consistent with the repackaging of these substances, and approximately $16,000 in cash.”

He was sentenced to five months in federal prison and three years of supervised release. The press release said he was in immigration custody for a removal hearing.

In January 2010, Moscariello received a 12-year ban from Canadian sport for administering steroids to national-level boxer Amanda Galle of Mississauga. Galle received a two-year ban.

“His 12-year sanction means that he is ineligible to participate in any sport at any level and in any role. This prevents him from coaching, training or competing, and restricts competitive athletes from associating with him as a coach or trainer,” the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) said in a press release.

The CCES is an independent body “responsible for the implementation and management of Canada’s Anti-Doping Program,” according to its website.

Moscariello told the CCES he “mistakenly injected Galle with deca-durabolin, a steroid that he used personally.”

Moscariello is described by the CCES as a “conditioning coach, personal trainer and nutritional consultant.”

According to his Instagram account biography, “Mosca” is a “Mutant Sponsored athlete Trainer of champions owner of Teambodypro.com have trained with 4 Mr.Olympians the best bodybuilders in the world.”


Team Body Pro is heavily linked to bodybuilder Jay Cutler, a four-time Mr. Olympia. His last title was in 2010. Moscariello describes him as a “good friend” and Team Body Pro has sponsored Toronto events starring Cutler.
