Calum Von Moger Biography in Unbroken

Calum Von Moger was born June 9, 1990 and was raised in a small town called Geelong that is located in Victoria, Australia. He was raised on a small farm with his 5 siblings. The environment helped him become disciplined and learn about the importance of nutrition.

He was only 14 years old when he brother asked if he wanted to join him in the gym. The gym was not the fanciest. There were plenty of equipment available at this gym, but everything was old and rusty. Though things were dated, it was all Calum needed to become hooked to working out.

The gym owner was trusting of Calum and his brother, so he often left a key in the letterbox for them so they could train after school. Sometimes a key wasn’t left for them, so they would take it upon themselves to still get inside to workout.

Calum saw his brother as his biggest competition at the time. His brother was always taller and stronger. This inspired Calum to lift and train harder because he saw himself as skinny growing up.

Calum was inspired by watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in the hit documentary ‘Pumping Iron’ and Steve Reeves in ‘Hercules’. This is what led him to use old workout techniques to form his classic shape. After years of training and working on his physique, Calum decided to compete in local shows. In 2010, he won his first bodybuilding competition. In 2011, Calum was selected to compete in the WFF Junior Mr. Universe competition. He also competed and won the NABBA Junior International championship then continued on and took first place in the Jr. Mr. Universe.

Von Moger later signed with Edwin Mejia Jr. from Generation Iron for talent management then later went on to star in the movie, “Bigger” playing a young Arnold. Von Moger was also featured in the Gucci Pre Fall 2019 campaign and initially cast in the Terminator franchise which he had to step off from due to injuries sustained from a mountain climbing incident in Australia.
