Jay Cutler was born as Jason Isaac Cutler in Sterling Massachusetts on August 3, 1973. He was born into a family that had been in the concrete business for three generations and started working for the company at only 11 years old. The company was called Cutler Bros Concrete who backed Jay to start bodybuilding, which he started at 18 years old.
Although Jay was being groomed by his parents to take over the business he studied criminal justice at Quinsigamond Community College where he qualified with a degree in criminal justice in 1993. The objective for doing this was in order to get work as a corrections officer working at a maximum security prison.
But everything changed when Jay met with a personal trainer called Marcos Rodriguez. It was with the motivation and guidance from Marcos that helped Jay get addicted to bodybuilding. His objective just a year after starting with bodybuilding was to become the largest bodybuilder carrying the most amount of muscle ever.
The first competition that Jay ever entered was the 1992 Gold's Gym Worcester Bodybuilding Championships where he came in second place. After winning a few local shows that year he entered the Iron Bodies Invitational where he took his weight class as well as the overall winner in 1993.
By this time Jay had found his feet and knew how to compete successfully as a bodybuilder winning the Arnold Classic overall titles for three years in a row from 2002 to 2004, and placed second to Ronnie Coleman in the Mr. Olympia competition four times before claiming the title in 2006.
Most bodybuilding contests are full of some sort of controversy and the 2001 Mr. Olympia was no exception when Jay tested positive for a banned diuretic and his second place win was taken away. He then sued the organizers and later got his second-place finish reinstated.
Jay later went on to become only one of three professional bodybuilders that has ever won the coveted Mr.Olympia in non-consecutive years. The other two were Arnold and then his training partner Franco Columbu. He achieved this when he beat Dexter Jackson in 2009.
It was this win that made Jay the only bodybuilder in the history of the Mr.Olympia competition to successfully reclaim the title after competing as title-holder and not won. Jay came back a year later and won the 2010 Mr. Olympia title which was his fourth Mr.O which he did by defeating his biggest rival Phil Heath. A year later in 2011 Jay Cutler was beaten by Heath at the Mr. Olympia where he took second place. Last year Jay came in a disappointing 6th place at the 2013 Olympia.
