A tribute to visionary Joe Weider

In the annals of body builders and the industry there aren't many Joe Weider would take a seat to. 

The visionary from Montreal, who started as a teenager in 1936 with stapled copies of Your Physique, passed away last week at the age of 93 (although there isn't much documentation of his age). 

Jim Schmaltz, an editor for IHRSA's Get Active! magazine and also an editor for Muscle and Body magazine, knew Weider and wrote a tribute to the legend in the industry.
