Congratulations Mr. Health & Fitness 2024

2024 Winner

Alcides Vera III

This professional bodybuilder has done it all. He’s a veteran of the Coast Guard, federal police officer, personal trainer, model, and, his favorite occupation—dad of two. The only thing more impressive than Alcides’ life story is his charismatic demeanor and optimistic attitude. He says, “A happy mind gives you a happy body.” After years of combing through Muscle & Fitness Magazine, he can now add another milestone to his Rolodex of experiences: appearing in the pages of the esteemed publication.

Muscle & Fitness Magazine honors strength, grit, and determination. From professional bodybuilding to running marathons, this is a community for all men who promote an active lifestyle.


Dennis James

The former IFBB pro holds 24 top-five finishes and now mentors up-and-coming bodybuilders with his transformation program. As a first place titleholder in dozens of international bodybuilding competitions, this fitness icon is the ideal host for the Mr. Health & Fitness competition.
