Extended Bio

At just 5’ 4”, Jose Raymond is pure muscle – and has been for over 30 years. By the time he was 12, Jose was already working out regularly. At 13, he reached 150 lbs. and two years later, he was able to bench 315.

However, his career as a bodybuilder didn’t start until he was 18 when his brother Tito convinced him to compete in the New England Bodybuilding Championships. Jose won the teenage division, fell in love with the sport and never looked back.

As of today, Jose has won 11 IFBB Pro shows, won both the National and USA title three times each, and most recently, placed third at the Arnold Classic 2017. Although he’d love to win the Mr. Olympia title, Jose says that if that isn’t in the cards, he’ll be happy just to be remembered as one of the best.

“I absolutely love what I do. I don’t compete for money or notoriety but more so because of my desire to share knowledge, experience & passion and to encourage others to follow their dreams!”
