Meet Vince Del Monte, the only fitness guru who has been coined The Skinny Guy Savior. He earned this name by transforming skinny, scrawny wimpy guys & girls.


Meet "Vince Del Monte," the only Fitness Guru who has been coined The Skinny Guy Savior. He earned this name by dedicating his life to transforming the lives of the skinny, scrawny wimpy guys & skinny girls - helping them become healthier, fitter and more confident in their bodies. In the end his students transform themselves to "Live better, Look better & Know better!" Vince has transformed thousands of lives of the skinny, scrawny wimpy individual with a perfect mix of encouragement, humor, no BS, inspiration and fun with his popular best selling "No-Nonsense Muscle Building" system.

Vince has the most popular and publicized "skinny to muscular" transformation stories in the world. He was the poster boy of the "I can't gain weight or get the girl" story. Vince became known as "Skinny Vinny." He was 140-150 pounds at 6 feet tall. The nickname didn't die; it stuck with him all through college.

He tried everything to gain weight any way he could, never reaching past 149 lbs., dripping wet. He went through the battles to gain like no other. As a former competitive long distance runner, Vince used running to survive the embarrassment and insecurity he suffered from being too skinny. He formed an identity for himself as one of those lean, mean, running machines.

Vince studied Kinesiology and received a Honors Kinesiology degree from the University of Western Ontario. After college, he found a mentor who "told him to burn all of his fitness magazines and stop wasting money on bogus supplements to gain weight." Vince's life started to change. He gained some weight, got muscles and then met the girl of his dreams - whom he calls his B.M.W. - Beautiful Marvelous Wife!

Vince helps thousands of individuals with "muscle unfriendly genetics"; make a plan to create new habits and commit to it. He helps with motivation, confidence, and teaches the basis for training smarter not harder - individuals see muscles within 2 weeks, not 2 months! They eat better and have a more balance life. And in the end, each individual becomes a better man or woman all while reaching his or her goals. Vince is the Author of "No-Nonsense Muscle Building: Skinny Guy Secrets To Insane Muscle Gain." The book has sold more than 80,000 copies in more than 120 different countries. He is also a WBFF Professional Fitness Model.

Vince has competed in over a dozen fitness model competitions and earned his Pro Card with the WBFF in April of 2011. He enjoys the natural bodybuilding and fitness lifestyle, and continues to practice what he preaches. Vince has been featured in Men's Health, Men's Fitness, Maximum Fitness, Reps, Inside Fitness, World Physique, Ironman, FitnessX and dozens of other online and offline publications.
