About Mr. America
In 1939, the All Natural Mr. America Contest was created to select “America’s Best Built Man” and was focused on honoring the ancient Greek virtues of health, muscularity, symmetry, and character in order to showcase some of the finest specimens of American masculinity. Over time, the Mr. America Contest grew to become one of the most prestigious and recognizable names in bodybuilding and strength.
In 2015, the Mr. America Competition began its efforts to revive the Natural Classic Era Bodybuilding™ – judged by old school standards including natural symmetry, proportion and classic posing protocol – coupled with the traditional drug testing component.
Today’s modern Mr. America title is awarded to the overall winner of bodybuilding and continues to represent “America’s Best Built Man” inside and out – a well-rounded individual with symmetry, muscle, mindset, and moxie.
“I knew that I carried a legacy and tradition. We have so many greats that have paved the way for people like myself and other competitors so it’s my responsibility to keep the spirit alive and continue to be a strong advocate for health and wellness, good character and values.”
