Author's Bio: 

Bill Phillips was raised in Golden, Colorado. He started bodybuilding in 1982, then moved to Gold's Gym Venice beach (known as the Mecca of bodybuilding) in 1983, remaining until 1986, a period during which Phillips admits to steroid use. However, he quickly learned the error of his ways and at 21 moved back to Colorado and began his publishing career.

New York Times bestselling author, magazine publisher, documentary filmmaker, entrepreneur, inventor, self-made multimillionaire, motivator, Bill Phillips has thus far proved unstoppable. Now, he has his sights set on scaling what he calls the "Mt. Everest of health and energy goals: Transform America from worst to first—to make it the healthiest nation in the world within 10 years." Described recently by Outside magazine as "the most successful fitness author of all time," Phillips' runaway bestseller Body for LIFE has sold in excess of 4 million copies. The 12-week guide to achieving mental and physical strength has topped the charts in 11 different countries—including the U.S., England, Japan, Australia, Greece and Finland—and was, in 2004, named among the Top 15 bestselling books of the past decade by USA Today.

Over the years, Phillips has served as a "Personal Transformer" to a who's who list of Hollywood icons and world champion athletes, including Jerry Seinfeld, Sylvester Stallone, Demi Moore and John Elway. But what he is most proud of is helping hundreds of thousands of "ordinary" men and women transform into extraordinary and inspiring examples for others to look up to and follow. People who have made a change in their lives and are now making a difference in the lives of others.
