“A real rags-to-riches tale.” - National Post
The sons of poor Polish-Jewish immigrants, brothers Joe and Ben Weider were the architects of muscle, responsible for creating the sport of bodybuilding. Despite a complicated family life they stuck together and grew their small magazine business into a fitness empire.
