Based in Denver, Colorado, Michael Lee is a recognized NSL and Musclemania Professional Physique Athlete, Author, 12x  Steroid-Free Physique Champion, Fit Lifestyle Coach and the owner of Iron Fit Life LLC. He also has one of the most incredible transformation stories in the history of the fitness industry.

In August 2010, he weighed 232 pounds, had a 40-inch waist, was pre-diabetic, suffered from the ill-effects of asthma and had a torn knee ligament. He was also terribly out of shape, out of energy, and at an unhappy time in his life.

Michael Lee Transformation

Mike knew something had to change so he found the motivation within himself to begin running and eating healthier. He used his knowledge and experience as a Army Vet to start with the basics of cardio, strength training and nutrition. Ten months later, in May 2011, he weighed 185 lbs, dropping over 40 pounds! He also joined a gym for the first time in his life and began to build a muscular physique.

By losing fat and gaining muscle, he totally transformed not only his body, but his entire life. He was no longer pre-diabetic and now he was more energetic and fitter than in his Army days. Mike also began to run and challenge himself in 5K’s, 10K’s and even a 1/2 marathon.

In 2013, Mike entered his first Men’s Physique/Bodybuilding Competition. He won 1st place in 3 different categories (Men’s Physique Novice Overall, Men’s Physique Open Overall and Best Transformation Award). He then went on to compete in several other shows throughout 2013 and 2016, winning a total of 10 Overall Physique/Bodybuilding Championships.

Next, in April 2016, Mike went on to earn his Professional Physique Athlete status in the Classic Physique Division in the Nspire Sports League.

Between being a brand ambassador, sports model, speaker and a blogger, Mike seeks to have a positive impact upon thousands of followers and supporters through social media and everyday life, and is determined to be one of the top fitness figures in the coming years.
