He’s modeled and competed for 20 years, and become well know for giving motivational speeches which inspire others to achieve physiques of greatness, this is his story: ‘ Making a truly committed decision is the ultimate power.’

At the early age of 12, Helmut first started training to protect himself from high school bullies. “At 12 years old, I was a skinny weakling and an easy prey for bullies as I stood out in absolute contrast to a schoolmate who was a muscle machine.”

His first set of weights were two bottles filled with water. It wasn’t until he was 16 when he first stepped into a gym.

Helmut’s diet is high in lean proteins and sweet potatoes and brown rice in the off-season, although he will always cut his carbs in the evening. ” I have lean protein in every meal: Egg Whites, Turkey, Chicken, Beef, White Fish. For my carbs, I go heavy in season on the Sweet Potatoes and Brown Rice.” He has between 150-200 grams of carbs, divided over six meals.
