Who is Jeff Seid?
Jeff Seid is an American fitness influencer who is active on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and other social platforms. He was born on 12th June 1994 in Renton, Washington. He is known for posting fitness-related content on his social media.
Early life of Jeff Seid
Jeff grew up alongside his parents and two sisters, Melissa and Kristina. He supposedly started playing sports at the young age of 5. Since he enjoyed being active, he wished for fitness-related gifts since he was a child. He got lucky on his 12th birthday when his parents gifted him a bench press, dumbbells and a few different weights. He also got a book called Weight Lifting For Dummies, which he kept his whole life. Since he was just experiencing puberty, Jeff primarily tried to get strong to impress girls. But once he started, he realized how happy weight training made him.
Background of Jeff Seid
While attending high school, Jeff participated in a few activities besides fitness. He regularly attended football matches and did American wrestling at the same time. Since he was good at both of those things, Jeff expected to get a sports scholarship to one of the colleges he wanted. It all seemed promising until the first football game of his senior year when Jeff injured himself. Unfortunately, he broke an ACL in his knee, which required surgery and a long convalescence. Jeff got the surgery done, but during his recovery, he became depressed. He knew that there was a high chance that he won't be able to play football professionally anymore. He decided to stop feeling sorry for himself and find another path. This path turned out to be men's bodybuilding since it required more muscles than mobility.
Fitness journey of Jeff Seid
Once he found his new goal, Jeff became motivated again and ready to succeed. He started working out, constantly increasing weights and the number of reps. Since his knee was still weak, Jeff somehow managed to tear his ACL again, which was a major setback. Luckily, this time it didn't require surgery, so Jeff could start exercising again, only more carefully. Once he found out that he could be a professional bodybuilder, Jeff didn't stop and kept following this dream. His efforts were so strong that Jeff became the youngest professional bodybuilder in the IFBB league's history.
Since it was an achievement to be proud of, it made Jeff more confident. He applied to a few fitness shows and competitions and ended up winning most of them. He felt so confident that he decided to sign up for the next Mr Olympia, hoping that he would become the youngest winner. Unfortunately, winning Mr Olympia was still out of Jeff's league. Luckily, Jeff only took it as a new goal that gave him a reason to train even harder.
