One of the world’s best-known and celebrated bodybuilding legends, Lee Labrada
holds 22 professional bodybuilding titles, including the IFBB Mr. Universe. He is one of few pro bodybuilders in history to consistently place in the top four at the Mr. Olympia competition (the “Super Bowl” of bodybuilding) for seven consecutive years-a feat he shares with Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 2004, Lee was inducted into the IFBB Pro-Bodybuilding Hall of Fame. He has appeared on the covers of more than 100 bodybuilding and fitness magazines and has been featured on CNBC, FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and ESPN as a fitness and nutrition expert.
Lee’s desire to help others reach their health and nutrition goals inspired him to found Labrada Nutrition, and create a line of award-winning nutrition and supplement products. Equally successful in business as he is in the gym, Lee guided Labrada Nutrition to become one of the fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S.-earning Inc. 500 status-in only six years.
In 2002, Lee was appointed the first Fitness Czar in the City Houston, where he helped launch “Get Lean Houston!”, a health and fitness campaign designed to get the city’s residents into better shape. Lee is credited with helping Houston shed the dubious honor of being named “Fattest City in America.”
