The December issue has just hit the shelves, and on it’s smoking hot front cover is the winner of our Men’s Health Cover Guy competition….

Congratulations to winner Marco Klue!

Marco posted on Instagram about how much the win means to him.

“TODAY MY BIGGEST DREAM BECAME A REALITY,” he wrote. “I will in due time thank everyone who made this possible for me… without you all I am nothing! Thank you for investing in me, I love you all!”

Marco said that his quest for the perfect physique began with a magazine when he was a child.

“Many years ago a lil kid sat with a magazine, cutting out workout routines month after month and putting them in a file; not only did that give birth to a dream, but it’s where my passion for the industry started! To the 9 lads that walked this journey with me; it’s been an absolute blessing, thank you for the friendships formed and allowing me Into your lives, much love to all of you.”

His friends know him as “Wolverine” and it’s easy to see why: this guy fought his way back from a tumour after doctors discovered the growth when he was admitted to hospital with a serious infection and life-threatening blood clots. Three months later he was discharged, 13kg lighter and sapped of his strength. What followed was a long road to recovery, but Marco tackled it with the sort of ferocity you’d expect from a guy who earned his moniker with sweat and blood. There were no mutant genes at work, just a relentless drive that saw him work out twelve times a week. Now, he has a body that thrives under pressure, whether its taking on twelve training sessions a week or dominating another bodybuilding competition.
