Max Sick (AUT)

Born to Swiss parents, Maxick developed rickets and dropsy along with lung problems at a very young age. This set of conditions set him back so much that he only learned how to walk when he turned 6. However, four years later young Max was determined to get stronger, creating his own set of weights and a workout program. Unfortunately, his parents didn’t share his ambitions and destroyed his homemade weights instead. Without his weights, Max Sick decided to start with a different form of training – muscle control exercises. Several years later, at the age of 14 he managed to develop his body so well (and earned some reputation along the way) that he got an invitation from the local athletics club to become one of their members. During this time Max also became an engineer apprentice and spent next nine years carving his skills in weightlifting, hand balancing, gymnastics and muscle control. Unhappy with his current engineering job at the age of 23, Max thought he could be of a much better use somewhere else with his perfectly carved body & strength and that’s when he moved to Munich to seek a better job and improve himself further. He was spotted rather quickly at a local gymnasium in Munich, so he took that opportunity and started working as an artist’s model. At this time, he stood around 5’4″ and weighed 147 pounds.

Pound for pound, it is hard to name anyone who could top Maxick.
