A real health and fitness success story,
Wally Emery's photo gallery.

Wally wins the very first competition that he enters at age 16, Mr. Muscle Beach. Wally is so new at body building competition; he had to have a competitor show him how to pose.

While in the Army stationed in Europe, Wally enters and places 4th in the Mr. Europe competition. Wally also placed 5th in the Mr. Universe Competition.

Wally had met Chuck Norris before Chuck had become the success that he is. In the early days, Wally was President of Chuck Norris Karate Studios and Chuck was the Vice President. Read more about Chuck's early days with Wally at Chuck Norris - The Early Days.  

After many years of a slow accretion to a lazy lifestyle, Wally was morphing into "Fat Albert". Wally turned his life around after a heart attack and a quintuple bypass surgery and became a Grand Champion in the 2002 Body For Life competition, before and after pictures of Wally in the Body For Life Competition are below. Wally is a real health and fitness success story.
