Henry is a great example of a competitor that has overcome adversity, and not only gotten himself on stage, but has impressed everyone with his determination and impressive physique.
In only his second show he won his Novice class and took 2nd in his Men's Open Short class. He has continued to improve with every show and has a great future ahead of him.
Adversity...... Henry's lucky to be alive, let alone a being on stage competing in bodybuilding contests. In 2005 he almost lost his life in a horrific car accident. He totally shattered his right leg, had a collapsed lung, fractured his jaw, nose, and two ribs. He had a contusion to his left side that went from his mid back to his knee, and ended up with a permanent foot drop.
None of that has slowed Henry down. He's one of the most passionate competitors you'll ever meet. He's also one of the most driven competitors I've met. He knows what he wants and puts in the effort to get it.
Henry is 5'4" tall and weighs 185 - 195 lbs. in the off-season. He competes at around 150 lbs. He started training in 1999 when he was 19 years old. He trained on and off until his near fatal accident. Watching him compete is inspiring and not just because of his prior injuries.... It's because he competed, asked questions, and he improved! He walked the talk and I have every reason to believe he will one day reach his goal of getting his pro
