Bob Hoffman was the founder of York Barbell and lived quiet the interesting life to say the least.
Hoffman began a company called the York Oil Burner association. His love for weight training would see him train other athletes on the side from his oil burner business to where he employed mostly lifters and training partners where they would train on their lunch breaks. They were known as the "York" gang.
Bob Hoffman is a person you should read about in depth or at the very least google search about his amazing feats of strength.
