Wittemberg Adolf Stanley was an ordinary guy in college, until one day a girl said she’d never date a guy that was as skinny him. This fired Wittemberg up to step into the gym the very same day and change his body forever.
Working hard in the gym for hours, weeks, and months. He eventually became the world class winner of the WBFF Pro Muscle Model competition in 2014 and 2015 held in Las Vegas. He continues to strive towards perfection to this day.

“The day was March 1, 2007. I was sitting in Biochemistry class and a girl mentioned she would never date a guy as skinny as I was. Later that day, yours truly – all 141 lbs of him – paid his first visit to the gym. Let’s face it. Women love muscles and I wanted to get their attention.”
“Once I was at the gym that day, I was lucky enough to meet a physical education professor who knew his stuff and the rest, as they say is history.”
