Entrepreneur, fitness expert, author, broadcaster, fitness video personality, father--Lee Labrada is all these things and more. As the Arnold weekend nears, his positive influence on America's fitness has never been more pervasive or profound.
Lee Labrada may not be flexing on stage at this year's Arnold Classic, like he was back in 1993, when he took second place. But he still competes hard every day; only the realm has changed. As a result, Lee's influence on the fitness industry and The Arnold Sports Festival only continues to grow.
That's saying a lot. After all, we're talking about a guy who racked up 22 professional bodybuilding titles, became Mr. Universe at 25, earned induction into the bodybuilding Hall of Fame in 1994, and was named fitness czar of Houston for his efforts at spearheading a shape-up effort in his hometown. (Men's Fitness had deemed the city to be "America's fattest" for two years running.)
Lee holds a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Houston, and he's always known a lot about building things, including his body, his business, a family, and his hometown's fitness awareness.
If you think those feats would be hard to eclipse, consider Lee's current endeavors:
Lee Labrada stopped competing as a bodybuilder, but he never stopped growing as a person. That's a lesson we can all draw strength from as the fitness world converges on Columbus for the Arnold weekend.
See you there!
