Thank you, Joe Weider

This weekend, we lost a legend—Joe Weider. Joe was a pioneer in bodybuilding.  He brought what was in the fringes forward. He made what was weird, admirable. His vision and grit gave life to and legitimized bodybuilding and inspired a fitness movement.

I never had the privilege of shaking his hand or hearing him speak. I don’t know all of the details of his life. But, what I do know is that without him, I would not be sitting here today writing this blog.  I would not have had the opportunity to step on stage as a physique athlete. I may not have fallen in love with fitness, built a career that fulfills me or met my husband in the gym years ago.  So, while I don’t know him, I definitely owe him.

Thank you, Joe, for all that you’ve have done for us.  Rest in peace.
