Episode 22

Colt Colletti: The Jungle Gym Trainer


In today’s world, everyone is being rewarded just to do the job that they were assigned to do and not go above and beyond. But if you don’t go out there and give your best effort, if you don’t go out there and try to display excellence and be the best that you can be, what kind of man are you going to be?

On today’s episode, I talk with Colt about the workouts he does, and the techniques he uses to push athletes and bodybuilders to their highest potential.

Colt Colletti is a native of River Ridge, who prepped at John Curtis Christian High School and played for the Colonels from 2000-2004. During his senior campaign in 2004, Colletti played in nine games and rushed for 546 yards on 91 carries with six touchdowns. Colt’s four years totals include 380 carries for 2051 yards and 24 touchdowns. Colt spends his time down in his home state of Louisiana and has some of the most well-known NFL athletes come to stay with him and train in what he calls “The Jungle” which is his house and garage gym.
