About Lee

8-Time Mr. Olympia: Often Imitated, NEVER Duplicated!

Lee Haney has more than 30 years of fitness and nutrition experience with eight consecutive World Bodybuilding Championships to his credit. Over the years, Lee has trained professional athletes and celebrities, serving as a consultant for some of the best nutritional supplement companies in the world and was appointed Chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

TheHaneyFamilyIn 1991, I became the first eight time consecutive World BodyBuilding Champion to win the covenant MR. OLYMPIA Crown. The road getting there wasn’t easy. It took hard work, delayed gratification, and above all a lot of prayer.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to be involved as a consultant with some of the best nutritional supplement companies in the world. Those associations, along with 30+ years of on-the-job experience, have given me a wealth of knowledge – knowledge that can be used in helping you reach your fitness goals. Whether the goal is to lower body fat, add muscle mass, or wanting to tone – I’ve been there, done that!

Why are nutritional supplements so important? Nutritional supplements assist in enhancing valuable nutrients that our bodies need. Nutrients that are lacking in today’s “hurry up and grow it” society. With that being said, it gives me great pleasure to introduce the Lee Haney’s Nutritional Supplement System, formulated with years of knowledge and know how.


Lee HaneyEven at age 46, Lee Haney’s Herculean physique mirrors his equally impressive credentials. As the unprecedented winner of eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles, besting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s seven-file record, Lee is an icon in the fitness industry. Lee was the 1st 8 time Mr. Olympia and the youngest to retire at the age of 31.

Now retired from his historic body building career, Lee’s focus has turned to educating others. Within the sports and fitness arena, Lee is revered among his peers for his comprehensive personal training techniques as well as his contributions to the integrity of exercise in general. Professional athletes and coaches look to Lee for goal-specific sports training and nutrition programs during the off-season and for injury rehabilitation.

  • Evander Holyfield sought out Lee to run his training programs before fighting in two heavyweight title defenses.
  • Lee also joined forces with Philadelphia 76er’s Shawn Bradley in order to strengthen and build up the hoopster’s post-injury.
  • Lee worked with Gary Sheffield to improve his overall performance and transform him from a shortstop into a powerful right fielder.acc_lee2

How does an athlete choose Lee Haney? “I read about him and it was a fantasy of mine to work out with Lee Haney” recalls Sheffield; one of Haney’s many admirers.

Lee’s popularity and respected position within his field have provided him with a lengthy list of awards and recognition including Proclamations from three cities and distinguished acknowledgments from The President’s Council on Physical Fitness, The United States Sports Academy and The International Federation of Body Building.

To Lee, Success is more about fulfillment than trophies or titles, so in 1994, he and his wife purchased a forty acre farm near their home and created the Haney Harvest House, a non-profit retreat facility for children of all races, creeds, and nationalities. “I wanted to be able to give something back. I’ve been so fortunate to have a lot of good things come my way, and it all comes from values I learned from growing up. If we don’t take time now to give some of that back to this generation then when will we?”
