Teddy Roosevelt was an all-American badass (21 photos)

Teddy grew up to be the spitting image of manliness, but as a child, he was quite the opposite.

He had a complete transformation when he discovered weightlifting and gymnastics, which eventually led to interests in judo and boxing. This transformation also made him a lifelong advocate for physical fitness.
