Jay Cutler was born Jason Cutler on August 3, 1973 in Worchester MA. Jay`s childhood was an active one where he rode ATV`s and worked on his family`s farm. His strong work ethic comes from working in his brother`s concrete business early in his life. The concrete business also gave him the foundation of his body, which led him to where is today.
Jay traveled around in his high school life and attended school in five different towns. He was always a popular person and even played high school football. After graduation in 1991, Jay attended Quinsigamond Community College and received an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice. Since Jay didn`t play any college sports, he picked up the sport of bodybuilding to feed his need of being active.
Jay is currently 32 years old and stands only 5'9". His weight varies due to contest demands, and on stage, can weight anywhere from 255-275 pounds. His offseason weight can be compared to that of any other pro bodybuilder on a bulking diet and can shoot as high as 325 pounds. No matter how much he weighs, he still presents a respectable body fat which is the reason he`s placed so well in the following contests:
1992 Gold Gym Worcester, 2nd place.
1993 NPC Iron Bodies, 1st place.
1993 NPC Teen Nationals, 1st place.
1995 NPC U.S. Tournament of Champions, 1st place.

Jay has been in numerous bodybuilding videos that feature contest preparation for the Mr. Olympia and he even has his own own videos that go in depth about Jay and what he does on a daily basis. "A Cut Above," "New, Improved, and Beyond," "Ripped to Shreds," and "One Step Closer" are all great videos, but I highly recommend "Ripped to Shreds" due to its educational purposes. Jay also wrote a book titled "Jay Cutler`s No Nonsense Guide to Successful Bodybuilding," which can be understood by virtually anybody.
Ronnie Coleman wins Mr. Olympia year after year and Jay remains a gentleman at all times. Jay doesn`t have Ronnie`s genetics and no training program he uses will be useful in trying to dethrone Coleman. However, age is catching up to Coleman and once he can`t physically or mentally continue competing, expect Jay to be titled the best bodybuilder in the world. Until next time, later.
