Flex Wheeler at Ultimate Fitness during Body Power


MARCH, 2018

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the BodyPower Expo, we are excited to announce that the legendary Flex Wheeler will be visiting us all here at Ultimate Fitness Birmingham! The BodyPower Expo is the biggest indoor expo in the UK and is taking place at the NEC Birmingham this year. As always, it is expected to draw in bodybuilding legends from all around the world.

We thought it only right that we should join in on the excitement and think “The Sultan of Symmetry” is the perfect man to help us do just that. If you are at all interested in the world of bodybuilding, then you will no doubts be clued up on the legendary Flex Wheeler. But if you need a bit of an update, here you go …

A bit about Flex Wheeler

After a rough childhood spent growing up in poverty, Flex Wheeler dedicated himself to the art of bodybuilding. He competed for the first time when he was just 18 and won his first trophy in 1989 at the age of 24.

Here are just some of the monumental accolades that Flex Wheeler has earned over the years.


Won the Arnold Classic 4 times (which was a record at the time)


Won the French Grand Prix and the Hungarian Grand Prix


A 5-time Ironman Pro winner


Has come in 2nd at Mr. Olympia 3 times


Came in 1st at The Night of Champions in 1996


Won the South Beach Pro in 1995


Arnold Schwarzenegger once referred to him as “One of the greatest bodybuilders I have ever seen”


Referred to by Ronnie Coleman as the best bodybuilder he had ever competed against

Though he finished competing back in 2003, Flex Wheeler has remained passionately involved with bodybuilding ever since. He has helped numerous other bodybuilders progress in their careers and has paid close attention to his own performance in the gym. In fact, he went so far as to compete once again in Mr. Olympia in 2017 at the age of 51.

More impressive is the fact that he came in 15th place, which is nothing short of remarkable! As well as this, he has been passionately involved in martial arts and participated in an exhibition fight at the Arnold Classic back in 2005. He has accomplished all of this whilst also battling severe kidney problems for a number of years.
