The Story

Filmed over a ten year span, The King of Size follows an ex-champion bodybuilder on a decade-long quest to reclaim his former glory while recognizing his own addiction to “size.” Crowned “Mr. New York,” Tony Natalie was not only the Empire State’s top bodybuilder, but also hailed as “the largest human ever seen in Rochester,” his home town. From 250 to 270 to 290 pounds, he continued to grow, until he set his sights on weighing 320 pounds. Pushing the human body beyond its limits, despite one injury after another, and even recognizing “a sign to stop,” Tony carries on, determined to earn his nickname as “The King of Size.”
