Blair Mone is an IFBB Pro bodybuilder from a small town in Vermont. The youngest of 4 boys, Blair was heavily involved with sports since a very young age, including baseball, ice hockey and wrestling. At age 13, Blair discovered weight training because he wanted to be like his bigger older brothers and improve his athletic performance. This newfound interest in fitness quickly developed into a life-long passion.
Blair’s life changed once more after stumbling across “Pumping Iron” at his local movie store. A fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his films, Blair decided to give the bodybuilding documentary a chance and took it home. After just a few minutes into Pumping Iron, Blair knew he wanted to pursue professional bodybuilding for the rest of his life.
Blair went on to watch Pumping Iron so many times that he wore out the VHS. But that didn’t get in the way of his training. At age 19, Blair entered his first competition and won the overall Teenage Title and took second in the Men’s Open Heavyweight. That was in 1999. It took 16 more years before Blair finally earned his Pro Card at the NPC USA in 2015. And he hasn’t looked back since.
Today Blair lives in Dayton, OH and is co-owner of Build Your Temple Health and Fitness with his beautiful wife Jessica Mone. His favorite movie is still Pumping Iron.
