Phil Heath's Early Life​

On December 18, 1979, Philip Jerrod Heath the accomplished bodybuilder generally known as Phil Heath was born in Seattle, Washington, USA.

From childhood, Phil has always had athletic tendencies. He was always active doing one sport or the other.

Not much is known about his parents and siblings, however, it's a given that his parents didn't devote enough time to him as a child. They were busy pursuing their various careers which they were very successful at.

This didn't affect Phil negatively or let's say Phil didn't let it affect him negatively. It was as a result of his parent's absence that he learned basic survival skills like cooking and cleaning early on in life.

Also, his parent's successful careers as a driving force for him to become successful too.

Phil had his early education at Rainier Beach High school. While there, he joined the school's basketball team and as an athletic child, he excelled on the team.

As a result of his good performance, he was given a scholarship to study at the University of Denver in Colorado. He majored in business administration and computer science but he didn't stop playing basketball.

He gained access to the weight room while training for basketball. Initially, he saw it as a way to improve his jump power and presence on the basketball court. But since he started weight lifting, he felt that playing basketball wasn't going to help him maximize his potential to the fullest, so he stopped playing basketball. He began lifting weight full time, and although he had several jobs he didn't lose focus on his goal.

In 2002, he decided to delve full time into bodybuilding. He read many books and magazines about bodybuilding; he began to pay more attention to training strategies, nutrition, and supplementation.

His first competition as a bodybuilder was the Rocky Mountain Northern Physique committee, where he earned the title of Champion. This also got people to start calling him 'The Gift' and 'The Next Big Thing' as his nickname.
