As a college defensive end at University of Northern Iowa (Cedar Falls), Daniel Banks learned the benefits of training. But it wasn’t until he became a police officer that he began exercising his bodybuilding potential. “I’ve always had good muscle separation, but it wasn’t until after college that I put on 20 pounds of quality muscle and saw what my body could do,” he says. Although at 6’4” he’s build more like a basketball player than a bodybuilder, he didn’t let that slow his development. “All my life I’ve loved a challenge, and that’s what I’ve been doing the last 13 years,” he says. “When I picked up my first weight, I was 170 pounds. Now I walk around at 265.”

Jess Maney started training at age 14, when as a high-school athlete he knew that adding size and strength to his 110-pound frame was the only way to excel. Now 30 years old, he has been training for half his life. As a member of the U.S. Army Wisconsin National Guard 951st Sapper Company, he has been deployed overseas twice and yet he still maintains a strict training regimen when away from home. When stateside, Maney competes in natural bodybuilding contests and runs his own personal-training business, Y Fit Fitness Training. “I try to live the Be-Do-Have ideal,” he says. “Find the person you want to be, do what he does and you’ll have that type of lifestyle.” Living in Wisconsin, a long haul from the muscle-model centers of New York and California, Maney has to work hard to get his image out there, but he’s ever ready for the opportunity. “Anytime Muscle & Fitness runs a contest like this, I always enter, ” he says.
