Who is Jeff Cavaliere? Wiki Bio
Jeff Cavaliere was born in Connecticut USA, on 28 June 1975, so his zodiac sign is Cancer and he holds American nationality. He is a fitness trainer and a YouTuber, best known for founding the company ATHLEAN-X.
Early life and education
Jeff was raised an only child in Connecticut by his father who was a businessman, and his mother who was a lawyer. He grew up watching movies and series on TV starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as Sylvester Stallone, and Jeff became interested in working out, wanting to become a bodybuilder such as them.
He attended a public high school where he was playing soccer and baseball for the school’s teams, and it was there that he realized how working out at the gym could help him perform better at these sports. He began exercising with weights at the age of 16, but worked out at home as he was still too embarrassed to go to the gym.
Upon matriculation, Jeff enrolled at the University of Connecticut from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in physioneurobiology in 1997, then went on to obtain his Master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Connecticut as well, in 2000.
He has also earned his Strength and Conditioning Certificate from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Career as a fitness instructor
Jeff launched his career in 2001 when he started working as a personal trainer, as well as a physical therapist for professional football and baseball players, with one of the most famous people he has worked with being Mark Johnson, a baseball player who played first base from 1995 to 2002 for three teams including the New York Mets.
Jeff continued working with Mark for several years before he was invited by the New York Mets to serve as their physical therapist, which was a dream come true for him as it has been his favorite baseball team since he was a kid. He stayed with them for three years, while the Mets won the National League East Championship in 2006. Jeff went on to launch his training system – ATHLEAN-X – shortly after leaving the Mets in 2009.
He is also a bit of a writer, as he was writing for the magazine “Men’s Fitness” in 2004, while he has also written and published his books “Major League Insider Training Manual”, as well as “The Teen Sports Nutrition Blueprint”.
Jeff is very popular on the internet.

It is widely believed that his wife encouraged him to leave the New York Mets and launch his own company,
