On seeing Jon’s enthusiasm and passion for fitness, his parents got him his first gym membership when he was 15 years old. Call started working on his strength and size as soon as he entered the weight room.

Jon’s gym was right across the street from his school, so he went to the gym after school and worked on perfecting his form and technique. Jujimufu had a special place for deadlifts and squats in his heart and has continued training them since beginning weight training.

Jon has a unique style of training where he changes his training routine in different seasons. In the summer months, Jon tricks outside three days a week. He avoids tricking and works on bodybuilding in the winters.

Jon trains six days a week while bodybuilding and regularly takes 3-5 days to back off his training during this season. Jujimufu understands the importance of recovery and takes 1-2 months off at the end of a year.

If you didn’t know about Jon Call and stumbled upon him, his conditioned physique and size would make you think he’s a professional bodybuilder. Although all your inhibitions would be broken as soon as you saw him train.
