Jeff SeidWashington, United States
Born June 12th, 1994 in Renton, Washington, United States, Jeff Seid began playing sports at the young age of 5 and it was essentially the beginning of what has become an epic journey. He was always a very athletic kid growing up and soon realised that being physically strong and in great shape helped give an even greater advantage over the competition. This desire and overwhelming passion inspired Jeff to begin lifting weights at the age of 11.
Jeff came across the newest IFBB bodybuilding category, Men’s Physique. He had been training consistently for 6 years at that time so wanted to use what he had devoted his life to building and see if he could make a career out of what he loved. One month later Jeff competed and won the overall title at his first show. Exactly a year after his first competition he went on to win Nationals, which made him the youngest IFBB Professional in history! Two months after becoming an IFBB Pro he won his first Pro show that qualified him to step on stage at the first ever Mr. Olympia Men’s Physique Showdown.
Most recently, Jeff competed in the Mr. Olympia a second time, has started his own clothing company, SeidWear and written a book, Guide to Aesthetics. What Jeff has learned from his journey so far is that strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strength. When you go through hardships and decide not to give up, that is strength.
Meet Jeff at the Fitness Show Sydney in April.
