Top 9 Fitness Icons

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….

Arnold Schwarzenegger

If you don't know who Arnold is I feel bad for you. An incredible story of the American Dream. Read his auto biography.

 

 

Rich Froning

Crossfit Games Champion. I'm pretty sure he is from another planet. His athleticism shows the immense potential of the human body.

Richard Simmons

He may be a corn dog but the man has been an inspiration to millions of people and still works today inspiring others.

Tony Horton

The P90X mastermind and amazing trainer. His program helped me not be a fat pig anymore.

 

Jack lelanne

Legend. The first guru on fitness. He paved the way.
