Jay Cutler Hits ABC’s Shark Tank! – IronMag Bodybuilding & Health Weblog

by Christian Duque

Jay Cutler is the quintessential businessman within the sport of bodybuilding. He at all times has been. Even when he wasn’t Mr Olympia and he was taking second locations to Ronnie Coleman he was nonetheless believed to be the highest incomes skilled athlete in physique-based sports activities. He was a wiz when it got here to negotiating one of the best contracts and ensuring that everybody he labored with was past happy. This wasn’t restricted to simply complement corporations, but additionally to food-based merchandise, equipment, and clothes strains.

Take his work with YoungLA. It is a model for younger guys who largely appear like Males’s Physique rivals. The road was a favourite for faculty gymrats and people adhering to the seashore physique look. And out of nowhere, Jay Cutler emerged in his late 40’s rockin their threads, and you already know what? No person thought something of it. It is because Jay most likely introduced them with some components they couldn’t stroll away from. He’s received an enormous social media following, he’s a 4x Mr. Olympia, and he has a global fanbase that would care much less how previous he presently is. What they care about is supporting what Jay believes in as a result of Jay has by no means bought out.

Cutler was the underdog’s bodybuilder for a few years. He by no means stop or cried politics. He by no means elbowed it out together with his fellow rivals or walked off stage mid ceremony. Jay and Ronnie had an ideal rivalry and even when Ronnie kind of snubbed him by calling Victor Martinez the inheritor to his throne, Jay simply brushed it off and saved working. He earned everybody’s respect, together with Ronnie’s.

Let’s face it, bodybuilders should not thought-about to be amongst the brightest bulbs within the pack. They’re seen as narcissists, they’re seen as conceited, and they’re seen as individuals extra involved with their outward look than planning forward.

There’s some reality to that. I’ve to confess it. Over time I’ve come into contact with among the finest bodybuilders on the earth. And I need to say that even when they’re on high they don’t have something when it comes to financial savings or investments. If their run swiftly ended tomorrow they’d don’t have anything.

Numerous former nice bodybuilders have succumbed to dwelling in homeless shelters, of their vehicles, or couchsurfing from buddy’s condominium to buddy’s condominium. That being mentioned, Jay Cutler gave each bodybuilder and physique-based athlete the blueprint again within the early 2000s. He was somebody that was always engaged on his future. He at all times had enterprise on the mind. Whether or not that meant shopping for up actual property, touchdown massive contracts, or utilizing his prize cash as a nestegg for the long run. So many guys burn via their winnings and their contract earnings simply because they wish to reside giant. You possibly can’t reside for the second and plan for the long run, or are you able to?

I’ll let you know that Cutler loved his run. It’s not like he was sitting round counting his cash and placing it into shoeboxes. He had the great home, the vehicles, and lived the life, however he was accountable.

The very fact Cutler was on ABC’s Shark Tank is not any shock to me. When you’ve had an opportunity to look at the pitch, the 4x Mr. Olympia gave an ideal presentation together with his enterprise associate. The champ emerged together with his two little canine they usually hit the bottom operating.

Bodybuilding is a really pet pleasant sport. For a lot of rivals the iron recreation is kind of the time consuming endeavor. Many lack the time, a lot much less the curiosity in having a big different. The overwhelming majority, nonetheless, have a pet and that’s often a canine. Cats are cool and all, however canine you may take out for walks and strolling is cardio, proper? You possibly can burn energy and grasp with man or girl’s finest buddy. And most bodybuilders don’t simply have one canine, they could have two, three, or extra. However pet food will get boring after some time. Our 4 legged associates reside for desk meals. Some beg, others appear disinterested, however all of them need what they will’t have.

Peanut butter might be one forbidden pleasure most animals gravitate in the direction of however one have a look at most nut butter ingredient labels and you’ll solely surprise what it’s going to do to your pup’s insides. It’s loopy that we people eat that stuff, however canine will get tremendous sick.

Jay’s Pet Butter solves that challenge by making a dog-friendly product that enables a canine to get pleasure from a responsible pleasure with out getting sick in every single place. Very like their pitch went, it is a product that may very well be given as a deal with, possibly as a distraction throughout baths, or possibly as a strategy to give canine’s their treatment.

Pups, similar to kids, hate taking meds. If the vet prescribes a tablet and there’s simply no strategy to get your canine to ingest it, attain for Jay’s Pet Butter. Probably the most convincing testimonial of all is seeing the canine lick these things proper up. And watching Jay end off the spoon after his canine had a style seals the deal. After all the sharks have been grossed out, however I believe they secretly liked what a canine particular person Jay is.


You need to do what you’re keen on. I’m a non secular viewer of the present and so many instances what will get the solid going is when you could have an entrepreneur that’s all about their product. They know every thing concerning the ins-and-outs they usually love selling it. Jay put his playing cards on the desk. The Sharks received to see his bodybuilding photographs and study him as a 4x Mr. Olympia, however he targeted on the product and why it was so necessary to get it to the pet world. Their ask was additionally very cheap. Jay and his associate requested for $50k for 10% which is fairly cheap contemplating what some entrepreneurs go in there asking. Some will solely quit 5% or much less fairness which often pisses the Sharks off. They’ll at all times say, “that’s not sufficient to get off the bed for.”

I received’t let you know if Jay received a deal or not, however in the case of being in The Tank it’s all about publicity. Simply being on there may be akin to one of the best industrial cash can purchase. The very fact Jay licked the spoon after his canine goes to get him gross sales. The very fact he held each canine for the entire pitch and the pups have been completely at dwelling will get him gross sales. You then have a look at the product branding, the colour scheme, and the truth that his canine (just like the canine within the adverts) couldn’t cease licking the product will equate to rapid gross sales. Personally, I’d’ve gone with a catchier identify however that’s simply me. That being mentioned, the identify says all of it. Jay’s Pet Butter is precisely what it’s and if it’s good, the bells and whistles received’t matter as a lot.

We’d all wish to congratulate Jay on at all times considering exterior the field. Plus, his presence on community tv is precisely what’s going to develop the game. He gave nice PR to the Mr. Olympia, to bodybuilding, and he was additionally capable of promote his new enterprise.

Nice work champ!
