In this article, we take a look at jay cutler before bodybuilding, and passion for bodybuilding as well as a record of the path he managed to achieve as Mr. Olympia. Today Jay Cutler is only training to stay in shape and change his diet, but he remains a role model for anyone who wants to get into bodybuilding because his background is exceptional.
Jay cutler before bodybuilding
Jay Cutler was born in Massachusetts in 1973, a period when some things were still possible. Born and raised in a large family, he was the youngest child in a family of 7 brothers and sisters. He has known competition since he was young.
The interesting thing is that he started working very early, at the age of eleven. His first job was in the family business, a company owned by his three brothers.
“I started working for my three brothers’ concrete company when I was 11 years old. Working in family businesses allowed me not only to make a lot of money, but also to experience the importance of a work ethic and how to work for something.”
But even though he had worked for years moving concrete blocks, lifting weights didn’t interest him anymore. It was a job and there was no fun doing it. His passion for sports and bodybuilding in particular did not show until long after he entered college.
“I started training bodybuilding in college and started doing well. I won the Teen Bodybuilding Championship as a teenager. From there, I started to transform.”
So it wasn’t until the age of 18 that he walked through the gym doors to lift weights. And again, at this time, he hadn’t seen himself becoming a professional bodybuilder. It is still a hobby. His dream at the time was to study criminal law because he wanted to become a correctional officer in a maximum security prison.
- The first competition
During his college years, a passion was born in him. Jay started enjoying gyms and going there more and more. This prompts him to go there almost every day. Obviously, with this training, his body changes and develops with great strength. Seeing the new number, many people began to notice it. But, again, it is not in his mind to enter competitions.
It was his personal trainer from the gym who pushed him into competitions. And it was not until 1993, at the age of twenty, that he participated in his first bodybuilding competition. So he goes to bodybuilding competitions and tournaments by invitation. After reclassifying the men’s and teen heavyweight category, he finally realizes that he has real potential and that it’s possible to become a pro! Only then did the franc fall and decide to pursue a career in bodybuilding and fitness instead of law.
Jay Bodybuilder Career
Over the next ten years, Jay consistently remained a professional. He participated in 23 competitions, won 11 of them, and was almost always in third place. And he became one of the greatest bodybuilders in the world.

But it wasn’t until 2006, at the age of 33, that he actually established himself and reached the pinnacle of his career. Between 2006 and 2010, they fought each otherPhil Heath, Jay Cutler and Ronnie Coleman in the prestigious bodybuilding competition: Mr. Olympia. And he won it every year except for 2008.
