Alongside his eight Mr. Olympia wins as a professional bodybuilder, Coleman holds the record for most wins as an IFBB professional with 26 wins. He broke the previous record (held by Vince Taylor at 22 wins) in Moscow on November 5, 2004.

Coleman graduated from Grambling State University (GSU) in 1986 with a degree in accounting. While attending Coleman also played football with the GSU Tigers under famous coach Eddie Robinson. After graduation, Coleman became a police officer.

Coleman supports the Inner City Games, an organization that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger co-founded in 1991. He was the recipient of the 2001 Admiral in the Texas Navy Certificate Award from Texas Governor Rick Perry for outstanding achievements in bodybuilding and for the promotion of physical fitness.

Coleman entered the 2006 Mr. Olympia on September 30, 2006 with the purpose of breaking the record of eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles, which he shares with Lee Haney, but finished second to Jay Cutler. He placed 4th in 2007 and announced his retirement from further Mr. Olympia competitions. Although stating his retirement from the Olympia stage, he still in fact may be presented on another bodybuilding stage.

On June 30, 2009 on MuscleSport Radio, Coleman stated he's made up his mind and he's going to compete in the 2010 Mr. Olympia after his back injury in 2007 which caused him to place 4th behind Jay Cutler, and made him miss out on Mr. Olympia 2008. But he's clearly made up his mind and he'll compete at the 2010 Mr. Olympia with the desire to win his 9th Olympia Victory. He also stated Mr. Olympia 2009 is too close to try to compete as it would affect his contest preparation, so waiting a year for 2010 is what's on his mind.Ronnie Coleman was married for the first time at the age of 43 to Rouaida Christine Achkar in December 2007. He also has two daughters, Jamilleah and Valencia Daniel.
