The birthday of Flex (Kenneth) Wheeler falls on August 23, 1965. He was born in the state of California - Fresno. Since childhood, Flex was fascinated by a variety of martial arts. He constantly worked on himself and developed personal equipment. Since he was not prevented from doing bodybuilding, he did so. Wheeler’s “pulling of iron” has always been relegated to the background, so it is flexible enough with a sufficiently massive body mass.


In Flex’s life, there was a job in the police, but not for long, because training for him was more important and more enjoyable. His goal was to become a bodybuilder with professional abilities. This athlete took the pseudonym “ Flex ”, which means “Flexible”.

The outstanding athlete received his first victory at the California Championship in 1989. Further, he took second place for several years (1993, 1998 and 1999) at Olympia. In addition to winning these victories, Flex often won various competitions, such as the French Grand Prix, Champions Night, Arnold Classic, South Beach Pro and others. This athlete had an impressive appearance, beautiful features of restraint and confidence.

A sad event in the life of an athlete was a car accident that occurred in 1994. This catastrophe could make Flex forever paralyzed, but he was lucky. He had to start his training almost from the very beginning. But the athlete quickly returned to his awards and places of leadership.

1999 brought bad news to the athlete. As it turned out, he had a complex form of kidney disease. Although the press tried to come up with the most diverse arguments, the athlete himself said that this disease was hereditary. Many fans of this athlete were disappointed by the news of Flex leaving the sport in 2000. But, in 2002, he expressed a desire to participate in Olympia. Having successfully completed the analyzes, he takes 7th place in the tournament. In 2003, Flex underwent a kidney transplant operation. Upon retirement, the athlete returned to the martial arts, and already in 2005 he participated in the Arnold Classic competition.
