History of Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding is developed by German Eugen Sandow in late 19th in England. He is also called as the “Father of bodybuilding”. Eugen Sandow had many stage shows and finally, in 1936 the Oscar-winning film “The Great Ziegfeld” depicts the starting of the modern body show competition.


On September 14, 1901, at Royal Albert Hall in London, Sandow organized the first body-building contest called “Great Competition”. This contest was judged by Eugen Sandow, Charles Lawes, and Sir Arthur Canon Doyle. Frederick Pomeroy is the chief guest and he presents the Gold statue of Sandow to the winner.

Willam L.Murry of Nottingham has secured the first position, D.cooper was the second place winner and A.C Smythe was third in that competition.

After the “ Great competition” success, on 16th January 1904 at Madison square garden in New York, the first bodybuilding competition took place. It was promoted by Bernard Macfadden. The winner was AI Treloar. He won a $ 1000 cash prize.
