Rich Gaspari has been involved in the bodybuilding and fitness industry for over 20 years. His success as a competitor, attributed to his scientific approach to diet and training, and notoriously brutal work ethic, is a testament to a man who, though not as genetically gifted as many of his competitors, toppled nearly every giant of his day. After retiring from the competitive stage, without financial support from investors, he put every thing he owned into the launch of Gaspari Nutrition. Over the past 12 years, Rich has developed a brand of supplements under his name, into one of the most formidable and best loved in the world. His determination and love for the sport of bodybuilding has seen a successful transition from his days as a competitive bodybuilder, now evident in his unyielding passion as an active CEO touring the globe teaching the fitness lifestyle to others. In the Spring of 2011, he pushed himself to the brink of exhaustion and ended up in the emergency room. With the true spirit and grit of a champion, Rich dug deep to overcome the rigorous demands of a CEO to gain his strength back. In the Summer, he was honored with a Muscle Beach Hall of Fame induction ceremony joining legends Joe Weider and Jack LaLanne that preceded him. Going back to his roots in Venice Beach brought back a lot of memories for the first ever Arnold Classic winner. The experience inspired the 48 year old New Jersey native to get into shape for a cover shoot to prove that its never too late. Follow the Dragon Slayer on the road, at home, in the office and in the gym during his 51 days to fit transformation. Walking the walk doesn't begin with a step. It begins with a choice.
