Steve Cook – The Original YouTube Fitness Star

Picture Perfect Abs

Cook has some of the best washboard abs you’ll see on Instagram. He maintains his chiseled physique throughout the year and will impress you with his work ethic. Cook sticks to his fitness routine even as he travels and takes care of business.

Steve isn’t your typical Instagram fitness boy who spams his followers’ timelines with pictures of his body from different angles. Cook arguably produces more content than anybody in the fitness community.

Cook has worked with some of the biggest brands in the fitness industry like Bodybuilding.com, ON and Gym Shark which go on to show his credibility. He’s coming up with his own line of apparel and other products in collaboration with these companies.

Pushing the Boundaries

Steve has started his own gym called the “Fitness Culture” which is a step away from the typical bodybuilding gyms. His gym is built around developing functional strength and has launched a mobile app where people can follow his workouts.

Cook has golden-era aesthetics with broad shoulder, a narrow waist, and tree trunk-like legs. His body is in perfect symmetry and his thick calves and forearms are proof he doesn’t treat any of his muscles as accessory muscles.

Cook is an outdoor person and you can see him hiking, relaxing on the beach, in beautiful landscapes or in the middle of busy but beautiful cities. You can never get bored of following Steve on Instagram.

Discipline is the Key to Success

Even with all the traveling and outdoor activities, he never compromises on his fit lifestyle and you’ll hardly ever see him indulging in cheat meals or skipping workouts. His Greek God-like chiseled physique is the result of his dedication and discipline.

Steve’s Money is Where His Mouth Is

Cook competed in the Men’s Physique division at Mr. Olympia. Although he never won the Mr. Olympia Men’s Physique title, Steve was one of the crowd’s most favorite athlete.

Steve started training in the basement gym at his home with his dad. He was a part of his school football team, and the love for sports and outdoor activities are in his blood. Cook first started out as a bodybuilding competitor and later turned into a Men’s Physique athlete.
