Early life of Phil Heath
Phil Heath was born on December 18, 1979, in Washington. His parents were working hard to provide for their family, so often Heath was left alone at home. So due to this, he was obliged to learn at an early age how to take care of himself. He instantly learned how to cook his meal, while keeping his basketball training. This hard work is what sets him up for a life of victory.

Bodybuilding career of Phil Heath
Heath started taking bodybuilding more precariously in 2002, where he took a job at his local gym, whilst learning as much as possible about diet and nutrition, supplementation, and effective training plans.
He believes this time as being the most impressionable years of his career as he read through crates of bodybuilding magazines, which all served Phil to create his awesome physique.
Phil Heath would become part of his first bodybuilding competition, in 2003 at the age of 24. He would go on to win The Rocky Mountain Northern Physique Committee championship at 192lbs, earning his first title of “The Gift.”
In 2005, Heath was contemplating around 215lb and decided to fight for his IFBB Pro-Card. He entered the NPC USA competition, where he was victorious in this effort. At this point, Phil started competing at a pro-level, working with the Colorado Pro where he repeatedly earned first place.
Heath would then jump back from this performance, by winning the IFBB Iron Man contest. After this victory, he would give the Arnold Classic another chance. This try would see Heath take the 2nd place spot, resulting in a rush of motivation, unlike anything he had shown before.
