About Jay Cutler
Place of Birth: Sterling, MA
Competition Weight: 266 lbs
Jay Cutler started training at age 18, with the hopes of getting in shape. The thought of competing was the last thing on his mind. It wasn’t until he met personal trainer Marcos Rodriguez that the thought emerged.
The first contest Cutler competed in was the 1992 Gold’s Gym Worcester Bodybuilding Championships, at which he took second place. A year later he took his first overall win at the Iron Bodies Invitational. Cutler went on to win consecutive Arnold Classic titles in 2002, 2003, and 2004, and placed second to Ronnie Coleman in the Mr. Olympia four times before claiming the title in 2006 and again in 2007.
In 2009, Cutler became the third Mr. Olympia in history (along with Arnold Schwarznegger and Franco Columbu) to win the title in non-consecutive years, defeating the reigning champion Dexter Jackson.
