That is sure is a large list. I am impressed with the man too. I have been impressed with him since I was a kid and saw his ad in comic books so long ago.

I think it would be impossible to list all the famous people who were inspired by Charles Atlas, even if we knew their names. We can never know how many people saw Atlas' picture and were inspired by it to build themselves up but never did order the course. Maybe the picture spurred them to get to the gym, or build a private one, or go with someone else's course.

I am not famous, smart, or anyone that will ever make the history books in any way. But I can tell you that you can believe what you want about pop culture, follow your Tony Hortons, do your Body for Life mantras, eat the Body by Jake programs, spend more money at GNC than Michael Jackson did on the Never Land ranch. But you will only suck fat from your body and have the effective strength of an older fatless zombified 10 year old. The Atlas course may not get you cut in 90 days, however in the longer term you will have body builders ask if you are superman! When you can lift off the floor what they MAX bench press with one arm, it will be more than worth while! Do not discount these older methods as something only as a gimic in the back of an old comic book, for any little nobody like me, can quickly prove you sadly mistaken.
