Piana actually grew up in Sacramento, California, and apart from American, was also of Italian ancestry through his father as well as of Armenian descent through his mother. He became interested in bodybuilding at the early age of six, being influenced by his mother who was a bodybuilder, and at the age of 11 he had already dived into the world of weightlifting. By the age of 15, heavily influenced by his idol, an “old-school” bodybuilder Bill Cambra, Piana was already competing, and by the age of 18 already had a few titles to his portfolio, including the prestigious Mr. Teen California title. All these accolades provided the basis for Rich Piana’s net worth.
In the course of the next two and a half decades, Rich Piana won numerous professional bodybuilding competitions and titles, including National Physique Committee’s California, Los Angeles and Sacramento Championship titles, as well as NPC Border States Classic XXX Bodybuilding, Fitness & Figure Championship event. However, Piana’s greatest accomplishment in his professional career certainly was the Mr. California Champion’s title, which he won in 2003, but doubtlessly all these achievements made an impact on Rich Piana’s overall wealth.
During the last couple of years, Piana withdrew from professional bodybuilding, and turned towards business – he founded and launched his nutrition line, as well as an apparel collection named Rich Piana: 5% Nutrition. Apart from this, he also took steps towards his on-camera career – not only that he became active on social media networks such as YouTube, regularly posting new videos, but also made some effort towards acting; Piana appeared in Tim Burton’s 2001 Sci-Fi movie “Planet of the Apes”, had a cameo role of The Incredible Hulk in the “Scrubs” TV series, and also appeared in the “Malcolm In The Middle” TV series. Besides these, Piana was also featured in TV the series “Mutant: Leaving Humanity Behind”, and in documentary movies “Generation Iron 2” and “SUPPS: The Movie”, all of which helped Rich Piana to increase the size of his net worth.
As he publically acknowledged on a couple of occasions, throughout his entire career Piana was using anabolic steroids. In several of his videos, he discussed its consequences, damages and side effects in detail and propagated the idea that “If you have the choice to stay natural or do steroids, stay natural.”
When it comes to his personal life, Rich Piana was married between 2015 and 2016 to a colleague, the Icelandic bodybuilder Sara Heimisdóttir after which he continued his “on-again, off-again” longtime relationship with fitness model Chanel Jansen. Piana passed away in Clearwater, Florida, at the age of 46, after a two-week-long induced coma, on the 25th August 2017 due to “significant heart disease” which was enhanced by long-term usage of anabolic steroids and hormones.
