Because he spent his childhood dreading the arrival of the same tuberculosis symptoms that had killed his mother, Macfadden grew increasingly obsessed with physical fitness and healthy eating as wards against disease.
By his late teenage years, he had set himself up in St. Louis, where he diligently practiced a well-honed exercise routine that included repeat sets with dumbbells and the horizontal bar, as well as daily six-mile walks carrying a pound lead bar.
He also decided on his purpose in life: Aroundhe rented a gym space in St. Louis, Missouri, and set a bold sign out front: The nonexistent profession just sounded good to him. And it sounded good to the people of St.

His publishing ideas were innovative and profitable, despite their often tawdry character.
He launched the first true confession magazine, True Story, inas well as a number of other magazines in the same vein, such as True Romance and True Detective.
He also launched the legendary New York Evening Graphic, one of the forerunners of modern tabloid newspapers. He opened a chain of Physical Culture restaurants, with the gimmick of charging one cent for every item on the menu, following the idea that the best foods for you were also the cheapest.
