Dan Lurie was born in Brooklyn, New York City in 1923 and was a founding father of bodybuilding and a physical fitness pioneer. He was a world-class bodybuilder in the 1940's and by 1949 he had won the Mr. America title of "America's Most Muscular Man" four times. In 1948, Lurie established the International Federation of Body Builders and owned the Dan Lurie Gyms and Health Clubs. He died at the age of 90 - 7 months after his birthday. Here is a closer look at his extraordinary life as told by Peter Yates.


Lunch with a Legend
By Peter Yates

"Dan Lurie has spent a lifetime in physical culture, has done just about everything in the health and fitness industry, and he has known nearly all the greats of the Iron Game." "Dan came up with the name International Federation of Bodybuilders (IFBB) and promoted in 1948 the very first physique contest under that banner."
