According to greatest physiques, “Obi Vincent was overweight as a kid. Growing up, he didn’t have any interest in sports or fitness, and he loved to indulge on his favorite snack – deep fried candy bars.

After years of watching TV and living off junk food, he found himself at 112kg/247lb by the age of 16. Obi was quickly reaching obesity, but it was only when a girl made fun of his weight when he became unhappy with his body. He realized that he had to make a change, motivated himself to achieve a shredded physique.

A decision that would lead him to becoming a fitness icon.”

Obi Vincent has trains with a unique and effective combination of CrossFit and Bodybuilding.
