Jason Isaac "Jay" Cutler (born August 3, 1973) is an American IFBB professional bodybuilder.[1] He is a four-time Mr. Olympia winner (2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010).


Cutler worked in his brother's concrete construction business, Cutler Bros. Concrete, from the age of 11. He began training when he was 18 years old as a senior at Wachusett Regional High School. He graduated from Quinsigamond Community College in 1993 with a degree in criminal justice, intending to work as a corrections officer for a maximum security prison. He was inspired to enter bodybuilding after meeting personal trainer Marcos Rodriguez. Cutler excelled in bodybuilding, desiring to be one of the largest competitors ever and took his first overall win in 1993 at the Iron Bodies Invitational. His first contest was the 1992 Gold's Gym Worcester Bodybuilding Championships, at which he took second place. He won consecutive Arnold Classic titles in 2002, 2003, and 2004, and placed second to Ronnie Coleman in the Mr. Olympia competition four times before claiming the title in 2006.

At the 2001 Mr. Olympia, he tested positive for banned diuretics,[2] but sued and had his second-place finish reinstated.[verification needed] Cutler won the Olympia for a second consecutive year in 2007. Cutler became the third Mr. Olympia in history (along with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu) to win the title in non-consecutive years, and after defeating the reigning champion Dexter Jackson in 2009, became the only Mr. Olympia in history to reclaim the title after having lost it. In 2010, he won his fourth Mr. Olympia title, defeating Phil Heath. In 2011, Cutler was runner-up to Heath at the Mr. Olympia. In 2012, Cutler was unable to compete at the Mr. Olympia due to a biceps injury. Cutler competed in the 2013 Olympia and placed 6th.

Cutler has since focused on his business venture, Cutler Nutrition, which specializes in bodybuilding nutritional supplements. Cutler Nutrition is a joint venture with BPI.

Personal life[edit]

Cutler resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has been featured on the cover of several fitness magazines such as Muscle and Fitness, Flex, and Muscular Development. Cutler married his girlfriend of seven years, Kerry, on July 9, 1998 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. They later divorced.
