Who is Jeff Cavaliere of Athlean-X and How Old is He?
The professional fitness guru and personal trainer were born in Connecticut, USA. While much is not known about his parents, his date of birth is recorded as of June 28, 1975. Jeff’s first encounter with bodybuilding dates back to his childhood days when he was inspired by professional wrestlers, bodybuilders, and well-built action film stars particularly Arnold Schwarzenegger.
For a long time in his childhood in Connecticut, Jeff lived in the dream world, envisioning building similar physique for himself. He later decided to start weightlifting competitively in high school. The activity also helped Jeff who was athletically inclined to perform excellently in his other sports interests.
In pursuit of his dream career, Jeff enrolled at the University of Connecticut and majored in physio-neurobiology and physical therapy. Around this time, he had gained lean muscle mass that looked stronger and larger.
After bagging his first degree from the university, the gym guru once again proved his determination to grow by obtaining a Masters degree in physical therapy from the same school. Considering his qualifications, Jeff Cavaliere saw no need to wait and immediately launched his flourishing bodybuilding company in his beloved hometown. But he nursed an ultimate goal which was to work in the baseball industry.
He got a lifetime golden chance when he met Mark Johnson, a player in New York Mets – who helped him realize his biggest dream of working in a baseball team. Luckily, the team’s head therapist was moved to another club and Mark had informed him of the vacancy available to professionals in his field.
In 2006, after he got a favourable mention from the player, Jeff was finally hired by the baseball club. Sometimes, however, true satisfaction doesn’t come from reaching that most ambitious life goal. This was probably how Jeff felt after attaining his biggest dream. The job became emotionally draining to him. Plus the enormous travelling involved harmed him and his new marriage. One time, he had to travel to 14 cities in one day.

In 2009, he tendered his resignation letter.
His resignation motivated him to focus and build his career independently, adding publishing to his resume. Now he has published a number of men’s fitness books and devised a training system that would become the most known online fitness guide.
