Burton Hughes began modeling at a young age, but it wasn't until 2009, after discovering his passion for strength training, that he transitioned into the realm of fitness modeling. A short 6 months later he entered his first bodybuilding competition where he placed 1st. He won his next five consecutive bodybuilding contests - including the 2010 Mr. Ohio competition in the light-weight class. Burton then shifted from Bodybuilding into the Men's the Physique division allowing him to capitalize on his natural aesthetics while maintaining a fit, classic physique. Burton won the 2011 IFBB North American Championships and was awarded IFBB Professional status. Since receiving his Pro Card, Burton has been cast in realty television shows featuring fellow elite Fitness industry personalities and has graced the cover of 48 book covers (and counting). Additionally, his 5 page, 14 photo feature demonstrating one of his personalized leg workouts can be found within the current issue (April 2016) of Inside Fitness Magazine. Burton has shot with top, world-renowned fitness and high-fashion photographers while traveling throughout the US and Europe for book signing events and appearances. He continues to feed his entrepreneurial spirit while working as a consultant and Fitness Industry business professional turning around under performing health clubs in addition to mentoring underprivileged youth.  Located in Westerville, Ohio
