Strength & Speed


"If you want something you never had, you have to be willing to do something you have never done."

Evan "The Fastest Bodybuilder" Perperis

Between April and December of 2014, Evan qualified for the Drug Free Athletes Coalition World Bodybuilding Finals, completed a triple bodyweight deadlift, ran a sub 3 hour marathon, placed 13th at World's Toughest Mudder and finished a 100 mile trail race.


Evan is a lifetime drug free athlete who competes in endurance running, strength competitions and now Obstacle Course Racing (OCR).  Prior to finding OCR, Evan bounced back and forth between speed based sports (marathon running, triathlons, ultra-distance running) and strength based sports (powerlifting, bodybuilding).  While trying to find a name that describes his unique blend of Strength & Speed and attempting to win a supplement contest, a friend of his came up with the nickname, “The Fastest Bodybuilder”.  Although currently focused 100% on OCR, “The Fastest Bodybuilder” will eventually return to the Strength & Speed competitions that gave him the moniker.
