Jay Zuccato (BIO)

No one screams young ambition like Jay Zuccato. At only 25 years old, Jay has taken the fitness world by storm, landing magazine covers, medals and respect, all while working toward his college degree. Balance, consistency and commitment are what make Jay the pinnacle role model for a generation of men and women who want to achieve success, while looking and feeling their best.

Jay’s Story:

Jay began exercising and lifting weights when he was 11 years old, after being picked on in school for being overweight. While standing at the checkout in his local grocery store, he decided that his dream was to one day be on the cover of a fitness magazine. After being a competitive kick boxer for many years, Jay went away to college when he was 19. Here he found himself living a very unhealthy lifestyle, which caused him to gain quite a bit of weight. Jay was unhappy with the negative direction in which his life was heading, so he decided to dedicate all of his energy to improving his health and to accomplish his lifetime goal of becoming a published fitness model.

Once Jay finished that spring semester at school, he spent the next 12 weeks extremely focused on his training and learning about nutrition. Over that summer alone, Jay ended up losing over 25 lbs, completely transforming his body and adapting a new positive lifestyle. Soon after, Jay booked his first photo shoot with Arsenik Studios Inc, and his fitness industry journey began!

After quite a few years of hard work, consistency and determination, Jay’s dream of becoming a cover model became a reality. To this date, Jay has landed 6 international fitness magazine covers, countless magazine features, ads and book covers. Jay’s advice to everyone is to NEVER give up on your dreams! Anything is possible if you consistently work hard and believe in yourself. The road may be difficult but it is certainly worth it!
