The incredible hulk! The Las Vegas bodybuilder who has transformed himself from a skinny 140lbs teenager into a 350lbs giant
- Graig Golias spent 10 years training six days a week for 90 minutes at a time
- The 6’3″ bodybuilder now weighs 350 pounds and works as an online coach
- He admitted it made him ‘addicted’ to the gym and ‘obsessed’ with his muscles
A scrawny teenager has turned into a muscle-bound bodybuilder after devoting himself to the gym and gaining 210 pounds – saying his training regime had ‘saved me from taking my own life’.
Graig Golias spent 10 years training six days a week – for an hour and a half at a time – to transform his body after he ‘didn’t like what he saw in the mirror’ as a child.
Now 35 and living in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 6’3″ bodybuilder weighs 350 pounds and works as an online coach.
However, he admitted that his training regime made him ‘addicted’ to the gym and ‘obsessed’ with his appearance.

Craig, who is originally from Ohio and once weighed only 140 pounds, said some people are ‘shocked’ when they see him but often ask him for tips.
He said: ‘I had low self-esteem and I wanted something to feel better about myself. I was a very skinny boy; I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror.
‘I struggled with depression and the gym is what saved me from taking my own life.
‘I decided to go to the gym and work on my body, abs, chest, cardio, a bit of everything.

‘I quickly became addicted – I work out six days a week for an hour and a half.
‘Once I started seeing results and getting attention it made me feel alive and accepted which I never felt.
‘The only problem is that I became obsessed and was never satisfied- I wanted more and more.
Craig admitted that he takes supplements to maintain his size but his secret is dedication, hard work and a healthy diet.

‘I do feel better – I am careful on what I eat, I usually eat chicken, turkey, rice, eggs and vegetables but I do allow myself a bad meal such as hamburger or pizza once every other day.
‘I have never tried alcohol by choice.
‘I just love training and pushing my body to the limits! It’s become a lifestyle and I’m grateful to have it in my life.’
He added: ‘All my clients are happy, I plan their diet, I coach them and they see the results they want.
‘Depends on what I’m wearing but when I wear a tank top people sometimes stop me saying “wow” and say they want to become as big as I am.’
