Jake Sawyer

You might call Jake Sawyer the new face on BodySpace. You may have seen him recently in a lot of places, such as a Tylenol commercial that ran during the broadcasts of the Summer Olympics, in which he played a wrestler, a commercial for Harley-Davidson, guest appearances on the Comedy Central show with Lewis Black, the new HBO series “Little Britain,” Work Out” on Bravo, and a bunch of magazine ads for everything from photo labs to travel. Now, it’s not as if Jake has been working on being an actor for the past 10 years; that’s all happened in the past 10 months! It’s a big deal for a 30-year-old from Maine, who wrestled for the University of Nebraska.

Jake didn’t go directly from Nebraska to screen and magazine, however. He stopped off in Iraq, courtesy of the National Guard, and got himself blown out of a truck by an IED—one of those now infamous improvised explosive devices. Surgeries and recoveries later, he got a degree in exercise physiology and sports nutrition, and he got his certification as a personal trainer.

For the past six years or so Jake has worked as a strength and conditioning coach, a fitness instructor at a country club and an independent personal trainer. In addition, he’s often out the door of his home in Palm Springs, California, and on his way to Los Angeles, where he auditions for commercials and catalog shoots. He was even a finalist for “American Gladiators,” and he just did his first bodybuilding show, the ’08 Muscle Beach Venice competition, which was held on Memorial Day.

Jake discovered BodySpace on and has been spending time talking with other people interested in health and fitness. He says BodySpace fits his goal of wanting to “be someone’s inspiration.” 

His BodySpace member name is “JakeWSawyer,” so look him up and tell him you saw him in IRON MAN magazine.
