2021 Olympia Bio | IFBB Pro Men’s Physique Arya Saffaie
My journey competing began in 2013, I decided to do a show and was fortunate to place 1st in my first show which kicked off an addiction for the stage! 3 months later I did my second show (muscle contest LA championships) and took 1st in my class and won the overall.

A week later I stepped on the muscle contest national stage in Las Vegas and earned my IFBB PRO card placing fist in my class

In 2014 I made a run for the Olympia stage. At this time, I had Kim in my corner and he helped changed my process has led me to where I am today. My first 2 pro shows I placed top 10. I knew I can do better so I kept pushing. Next show was the mile high pro where finally placed top 5 earning 4th. This motivated me to keep going. So I did, and the next show was in new Orleans. This is where I placed 1st and earned my 1st qualification to MR Olympia in 2014

2015 I had to sit out due to getting 2 shoulder surgeries. I was determined to come back.

In 2016 I did and requalified for my 2nd Olympia. This was special due to the fact that I was coming back from 2 surgeries that had me feeling maybe my competing days were over.

Fast forward, I have qualified for 6 Olympias, ( 2014, 2016,2017, 2019,2020, 2021) have won 5 pro shows and this next show will be my 31st show total ( 3 armature and 28 pro)

Under Kim’s guidance, I’ve continued to improve and feel this next Olympia I am feeling confident that I can and will to place higher than I ever have.
