How Musclemania World Champ Mike Lee went from dad bod to ripped dad

This week’s Fit Dad Fitness Podcast guest has a fitness transformation that is truly one of the most eye opening ones you’ll find.

My guest this week is Mike Lee, a 12-time physique competition champion, which includes the 2017 Musclemania World Championship. To see Mike today is to see a lean, athletic, ripped specimen who looks capable of stepping on stage at any moment. Yet in 2010, that was far from the case.

In August 2010, Mike weighed more than 230 pounds, had a 40-inch waist, was pre-diabetic, and was, as he puts it on his website (, “terribly out of shape, out of energy and at an unhappy time in my life.”

After seeing a picture of himself shirtless while on a family outing at a water park, Mike made the decision to take control of his health and fitness, and over the next several months, he went about radically transforming his body from a dad bod to that of a ripped dad.

He made his transformation by making practical, uncomplicated changes to his daily habits, which became the basis for his 5 Fit Rules.

Now, Mike is quickly becoming one of the more recognizable names and faces in the fitness industry, especially after making it into the final round of the 2017 Spokesmodel competition.
