Half-Iranian, half-American, Arash Rahbar is a professional classic physique competitor. He was the runner-up for the 2016 Mr. Olympia Classic Men's Physique, and the winner of the 2016 New York Pro.

It was in 2014 that Arash decided to push his physique further and compete. He stepped on the stage at NPC Bev Francis Atlantic States stage, taking home the 1st place and overall trophies. That same year, he won the IFBB North American Championships, earning his professional status in bodybuilding.
