Rob Niter is an American pro- bodybuilder, actor, fitness model, and trainer.
He won the 2013 Musclemania Lonestar Overall Muscle Model and 2014 Musclemania All Forces Overall Physique and Muscle Model Championships. In 2015 he won the Musclemania Overall Muscle Model Championships.
Niter grew up at various military installations in Germany as a United States Army dependent. He told Digital Journal about his entry into the fitness industry:
“It all started when I was a sport athlete at a young age, where I competed in football and basketball at different stadiums around Europe. While training for those sports, I noticed my body’s response to weight lifting which motivated me to continue training to see where it would take me. I began reading various magazines about training, nutrition and supplements. This motivated me to enter into my first bodybuilding competition and now, the rest is history.”
Digital Journal asked about what his goals, and the drive behind his diverse success:
“My motivation comes from the passion, ambition and the vision to improve self. It’s an internal drive of knowing that I must give it my all and do my best at what I love in order to reach satisfaction. I also surround myself with positive people to keep me inspired.”
Nitler’s latest project is as an actor on several episodes of the Stephen King’s ‘Mr. Mercedes’ TV series, scheduled to air in 2018.?
Niter has also set up a GoFundMe for his self-incepted movie idea.
“This movie is close to my heart. I have given my own blood, sweat and tears in pursuit of my dreams. After growing tired of waiting for the phone to ring for ‘the big movie role’ I decided to grab the bull by the horns and create my own vehicle. This will be a great story, but also edgy, yet exciting to watch.”
It’s always encouraging to see someone like Niter try to parlay their physique and modest competitive success into a strong personal brand. Young bodybuilders who perhaps are not invested in pro careers could keep an eye on Niter as an example of how to make it in the entertainment industry.
