JM was always a fat creepy shitbird, in my dealings with him. I never let my girls pose for him outside of the overall/winner photos for the NPC magazine. Luckily he usually doesn’t like bigger girls anyway, sweats the bikini/figure girls hard.

From the male pros I know and have talked to personally its not a whole lot different for them. It's pretty much an "expected" part of the business.

Side note: Every one of these girls looks like someone set their face on fire and tried to put it out with an ax. They don't make enough Viagra and Cialis for it to even twitch.

I find this hard to believe. He wrote all those fantastic training articles for flex and m&f. Jim is the rizzle dizzle bb coach.

My wife used to train with Val Waugaman, back about 15 years ago. She had just won NPC nationals, and Manion was wanting her to sign with his agency as she went pro. She was noncommittal as she had heard the rumors, and didn't want to. She was quickly moving up, took third at the Arnold, won the North American and Colorado Pro shows, then took 8th at the Olympia. After turning down the agency, it was all over for her. Got a gig with American Gladiators, and then got married and started a family, I think.

I'm assuming she was "every girl" that didn't take the offer you couldn't refuse.

Not that I like Jim Manion much either, but it’s his son JM who is the bloated disgusting pervert.

yeah, his son is the agency that reps for the figure/bikini girls. but his connections seemed to ensure things kept moving along with your career. I wonder if the MeToo movement will now be coming for them.

JM is a f-ing perv the way he hovers backstage and around the venues. He is a perfect example of the old "Chester the Molester" character . I'm a dude and the guy creeps me out. NPC and IFBB are very corrupt always has been. But on the flip side, female and male competitors have a history of doing some feaky stuff to make money to support themselves. Females doing the private wrestling, porn & more and of course the old G4P guys. So there's no innocence on either side, but when the very organization is as corrupt as the IFBB & NPC are then what do you expect.

All the"bodybuilding" sites like Generation Iron have no mention of the Washington Post article. Thank you for posting this.

I meet Jim Manion back in the 80s when i was doing regional NPC shows. The guy was a mumbling creep. He doesn't like women, he likes boys. At least creepy fatass son likes women.

I hate to say this but this is kinda been common knowledge. At least at national level. Fucking been going on since I can remember. Ever since bikini took over the sport it has been known. I am good friends with a few top
Level judges and it is reminds me of Weinstein shit. Everyone knows but no one does shit about it.

I have been approached twice at events by creepy dudes who want to do "special" one on one photo shoots.
