Rich Gaspari is an IFBB-certified pro bodybuilder from New Brunswick, New Jersey who is most famous for being one of the richest men in bodybuilding due to his supplement company, Gaspari Nutrition.

Gaspari went pro in 1984 and made his pro debut at the World Amateur Championships in the same year, where he placed first. Although a seven-time Olympia contender, he never managed to win the title. He was very successful in the sport nonetheless and was inducted into the Muscle Beach Hall of Fame in 2011. In 2013, he was also awarded the Arnold Classic Lifetime Achievement Award.

After Gaspari retired in 1996, he began focusing full-time on his company, Gaspari Nutrition. He also currently stars in the Generation Iron docu-series Gaspari: The New Era.
