The other day my daughter asked me who is the most famous fitness person in the world. Without hesitation I replied, “Arnold Schwarzenegger of course.”
However, some people might disagree. What about Bruce Lee? How about Chuck Norris? All very famous and have done incredible things for their craft. But who would be the most famous fitness ever? That's a question that will be debated forever. But as for my list of fitness icons, we'll start with the man I view as the undisputed king….
If you don't know who Arnold is I feel bad for you. An incredible story of the American Dream. Read his auto biography.
Crossfit Games Champion. I'm pretty sure he is from another planet. His athleticism shows the immense potential of the human body.
He may be a corn dog but the man has been an inspiration to millions of people and still works today inspiring others.
The P90X mastermind and amazing trainer. His program helped me not be a fat pig anymore.
Legend. The first guru on fitness. He paved the way.
Biggest loser fame and an amazing resource for anyone on any level getting fit.
Queen of Crossfit 2014. She is an amazing athlete and goes to college full time studying bio engineering.
Her Turbo kick classes and DVDs have inspired thousands of people to get fit not only physically but emotionally and financially as well.
Need I say more.
My top nine fitness icons, not just because they are famous or well known names, but because each and everyone of these people has inspired me personally to be a better athlete and person.
