Charles AtlasCharles Atlas was the inspiration for the comic book ads showing a 98-pound weakling having sand kicked in his face by a bully and then building up his body to the point where he ends up kicking sand in the face of the bully. The ad was appropriate, as Atlas was at one time that 98-pound weakling.
Bernarr MacfaddenBernarr Macfadden created an empire based on the slogan "Weakness is a crime; don't be a criminal!" By following a vigorous and regular daily exercise routine, combined with a natural foods diet, he went from being a very sickly 11-year-old to an exceptionally fit teenager, and maintained his fitness well into his 80's.
