Big Boy

United States United States


Sometimes big things actually do come in big packages. That holds true for an upcoming powerlifter, skateboarder, and viral video sensation Jake Johns a.k.a. Big Boy from San Clemente, California. Weighing in at above 330 pounds, he’s got a strength athlete’s body and a concrete surfer’s soul. Big Boy’s skateboarding antics are the stuff of legend: His drop-in on Tony Hawk’s 13.5-foot vert ramp – although ending in a disastrous slam – garnered over 1 million YouTube views, and counting. When he’s not rubbing shoulders with skateboard superstars and shredding their private training facilities, Big Boy is equally at home in the worlds of strength training and mixed martial arts (MMA). You can catch him on social media working out with legendary UFC fighters, pumping iron alongside the world’s strongest powerlifters, and sharing workout tips from the hottest gyms in SoCal. It’s all part of the same program for Big Boy – and his followers are always hungry for more. Whatever Jake Johns decides to do next, you already know it’s going to be BIG.
