Lee Haney is a former American IFBB professional bodybuilder. Haney is the joint record holder, along with Ronnie Coleman, for winning the most Mr. Olympia titles, with eight. A devout born again Christian, Haney has his own program on the Trinity Broadcasting Networkcalled “TotaLee Fit with Lee Haney,” where he is usually joined by famous Christian sportsmen, and on occasion his wife. On the show he teaches the importance of both physical and spiritual growth. One of his most famous quotes is that we should “train to stimulate, not annihilate.”
He and his wife reside in Fayette County, Georgia. Their two children are now in college. President Bill Clinton appointed Haney chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
In October 2005, Ronnie Coleman tied Haney’s Mr Olympia record becoming only the second person to win eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles. Haney is a graduate of Spartanburg Methodist University, where he earned a degree in child psychology.
