Lee Haney Accomplishments

Even at age 42, Lee Haney's Herculean physique mirrors his equally impressive credentials. As the unprecedented winner of eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles, besting Arnold Schwarzennneger's seven-file record, Lee is an icon in the fitness industry.

Now retired from his historic body building career, Lee's focus has turned to educating others. Within the sports and fitness arena, Lee is revered among his peers for his comprehensive personal training techniques as well as his contributions to the integrity of exercise in general. Professional athletes and coaches look to Lee for goal-specific sports training and nutrition programs during the off-season and for injury rehabilitation. Evander Holyfield sought out Lee to run his training programs before fighting in two heavyweight title defenses. Lee also joined forces with Philadelphia 76er's Shawn Bradley in order to strengthen and build up the hoopster's post-injury. Most recently, Haney worked with Florida Marlins' Gary Sheffield to improve his overall performance and transform him from a shortstop into a powerful right fielder. How does an athlete choose Lee Haney? "I read about him and it was a fantasy of mine to work out with Lee Haney" recalls Sheffield; one of Haney's many admirers.

For recreational and professional athletes, Lee owns two fitness centers in Atlanta which provide supervised weight training, aerobic, and strength conditioning equipment in addition to extensive nutritional counseling. His first facility, The Lee Haney World Class Fitness Center, is unique in that it is the official wellness center for the city of Atlanta.

In addition to hands-on work, Lee also authored two exercise books, Total Lee Awesome and Ultimate Bodybuilding, further establishing himself as an expert on weight training and nutrition.

Lee's popularity and respected position within his field have provided him with a lengthy list of awards and recognition including Proclamations from three cities and distinguished acknowledgments from The President's Council on Physical Fitness, The United States Sports Academy and The International Federation of Body Building

To Lee, Success is more about fulfillment than trophies or titles, so in 1994, he and his wife purchased a forty acre farm near their home and created the Haney Harvest House, a non-profit retreat facility for children of all races, creeds, and nationalities. "I wanted to be able to give something back. I've been so fortunate to have a lot of good things come my way, and it all comes from values I learned from growing up. If we don't take time now to give some of that back to this generation then when will we?"
