Sicilian Culture: The People

Charles Atlas

Charles Atlas, has been declared "The World's Most Perfectly Developed Man."  He was chosen by a cross disciplined group of health and medical experts, educators, anthropologists, scientists and doctors who viewed Atlas as the perfect male body and placed his physical measurements on file for posterity. Atlas' measurements are buried in a time capsule at Oglethorpe University.

Selected by Forbes Magazine as one of the Century's Super Salesmen. Named one of the Most Influential People of the Twentieth Century by Times Sunday Magazine. Worldwide-known strongman, he is a founding father of modern-day body building and fitness.

He died of heart failure at age 79 after his daily jog on the beach.  Visit for more information.
