Both as an amateur and professional, Vince Taylor has been in the health industry, creating and promoting fitness and bodybuilding for more than 20 years. Married and the father of 3 boys, Vince is currently living in South Florida.
Vince spent a great part of his adult life in Europe, working for the US military as a weapons specialist in Berlin, Germany (1976 -1989. It was during that time, that at the age of 27, he discovered his passion for bodybuilding.

Vince has enjoyed a great competitive bodybuilding career, which has spanned over two decades. He earned his ‘pro card’ with his 1988 National Championship victory, at the age of 32.

That victory qualified him for his very first Mr. Olympia contest, which he entered a few months later, making it his second professional bodybuilding contest.

His 3rd place finish at the 1989 Mr. Olympia catapulted him to the top of the Bodybuilding world. Vince would repeat that 3rd place finish in 1991, where he revolutionized posing with his terminator posing routine. Some of his highest achievements include his record setting 5 consecutive Master Mr. Olympia victories.

Taylor until recently held the Guinness world record for the most IFBB professional wins at 22 victories (this record was recently beaten by eight time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman with 26 wins). He recently made a comeback to the sport by competing in the 2006 Australian Pro, where he placed 3rd. Then went on to the 2006 Mr. Olympia to come in 11th.

He took 10th place at the 2007 Arnold Classic, in a very competitive field. He signed on to compete at the Australian Pro in 2007. Taylor also appeared in several training videotapes such as “Vince Taylor Workout- “Getting Pumped”.

Vince Taylor is a certified professional trainer and a Director/Examiner for the Professional Trainers Association.
