Phil Heath entered the bodybuilding world in 2002. He won his first two IFBB pro competitions the next year. Heath competed in three Arnold Classics. He placed first in the 2013 Arnold Classic Europe. He also competed in eight Mr. Olympia competitions, placing first in five of them.

Today, Heath owns a fitness apparel company, Gifted Athletics (derived from his nickname “The Gift”), as well as Gifted Nutrition, a nutritional supplement company he created with Joey Firestone. Heath became the first pro bodybuilder to own his own nutritional supplement company while still competing at the pro level.


  1. Nice how this story mentions how rich they are, but all have admitted steroid use. Arnold had open heart surgery at 49 due to clogged arteries due to steroid use. Horrible omission of REAL FACTS.

  2. Mr. Deez you fail to realize this article ISN’T about nutrition and supplementation. It only discusses the money they have made from the sport.
    What about Lee Labrada? He’s had a successful nutrition line for years.

  3. Lou Ferrigno is worth more than 6 million dollars and Arnold Schwarzenegger did not make 300 million dollars bodybuilding.He made that much including his movie career.

  4. I always thought it was strange how Lou Ferrigno is more muscular than Arnold Schwarzenrgger but Arnold Schwarzenegger always won when they competed against each other.

  5. There were some with better symmetry and good mass i.e. Serge Nubret and sergio Oliva but they lacked the business sense to make a fortune and felt comfortable in their Role. How many of us are Millionaires ?
    Secondly, The once who are financed BB at that time ( today the same ) are looking for the most charismatic Person which brings the Sport ( and the money rolling ) to the masses.
