Eugen Sandow

Eugen Sandow (born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller;April 2, 1867 – October 14, 1925) was a pioneering German bodybuilder, now known as the “father of modern bodybuilding”. He left Prussia in 1885 to avoid military service and traveled throughout Europe, becoming a circus athlete and adopting Eugen Sandow as his stage name. Florenz Ziegfeld placed Sandow on display at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Ziegfeld found that the audience was more fascinated by Sandow’s bulging muscles than by the amount of weight he was lifting, so Ziegfeld had Sandow move in poses which he dubbed “muscle display performances”.
