tell that to Paul Rubens


Whatever Tim, why are you so starstuck on Dan Lurie for???  He's a bitter old man who simply can't contend with Joe Weider winning the bodybuilding industry wars.

The Dan Lurie Life Story details Dans experiences as:

•A top bodybuilding competitor and holder of many world strength records.
Finished 2nd place all three times in the Mr America - No official strength records, all endurance based

•Founder of the Dan Lurie Barbell Co.
Defunct and no longer operating.  Outsold by Weider Barbell, still in operation

Contest Promoter: he started the both IFBB and the WBBG (World Body Building Guild) federations.
Disputed - Both Dan and Joe had IFBB shows in 1948, neither can make sole claim.  WBBG is defunct and no longer operation.  Joe kept it going which is why there is an IFBB today while Dan abandoned it for the WBBG

•Organizer of the WBBG Hall of Fame, Fitness Dinners.
See above, Defunct and no longer operating

•Owner of the famous chain of Dan Lurie Health Gyms.
Defunct and no longer operating, no longer licensed or franchised


•Publisher of Muscle Training Illustrated magazine for almost 30 years, along with five other journals.
Defunct and no longer operating, no buyer came in to purchase the rights


•Owner of the Dan Lurie line of sports and health supplements.
Defunct and no longer operating, Lou Ferrigno negative about his experience and Sergio Olivia accused him of mispromotion while he was on stage.  Claimed that he took advantage of him because he didn't understand English.


•Founder of the Dan Lurie Sauna Corp.
Defunct, its not like he invented the sauna

•Television Star on the CBS-TV Sealtest Big Top Circus Show.
He ate Sealtest ice cream before doing his amazing feats of strength.  Epic promotion of fitness for an unhealthy product that contributed to child obesity.  Only real actor on the show was Ed McMahon who played a clown

•Actor in Captain Video commercials for the top ranked childrens show of the same name.
Played one part in a widely panned TV series in which most of the tapings were destroyed.


•Father of 5 Children and 15 Grandchildren.
One of the few positives

•New York State Checkers Champion at age 13.
 Roll Eyes Not important enough to comment



The fact is that Dan made millions, has a great family and should be enjoying the golden years of his life but instead he is still waging war against Joe Weider.  There is nothing that Dan can even gain from getting one over on Joe even if it was possible because its practically Ancient history.  There's nothing in his book that hasn't been discussed decades ago.

But since he wants to reveal something, I'll give him a hand.... Grin

                               you miss the point lurie is what bodybuilding interesting in the 50's and early 60's he challenged everyone from bob hoffman to john grimek to joe weider to contests. that's why  the sport is stale today no ifbb fighting with the wbbg who's also fighting with the aau. one guy had three names so he could compete in all the orgs. ed guke=ed gerge=eric hunter. all the same guy.

Dan Lurie and Joe Weider are practically birds of the same feather.  Its just that Joe won.  If Dan won, things would still be the same
