About the Owner

At sixteen years of age (1979), Dean Caputo had an interest in working out, so he built a weight room in his parent’s Streetsboro Ohio garage with only a couple benches and a few machines. Having Dean’s friends train with him in his weight room gave him the idea and inspiration to open his own gym. After working two jobs through high school, Dean was able to make his dream come true in 1982. He opened his first business at the age of eighteen years old in his hometown of Streetsboro, Ohio. It was named Bodybuilders Unlimited in the Streetsboro Plaza. While owning his own gym and being a competitive, undefeated Bodybuilder, Norm & Will Dabish of Powerhouse Gym approached Dean about converting his Bodybuilders Unlimited name to a Powerhouse Gym. This was the exciting beginning to a new chapter in Dean’s life!

We hope to see you at the Dean Caputo’s Powerhouse Gym & Performance Center in Streetsboro, Ohio.
