About Clay Ellis

As beautiful inside as he is out, Clay is both a Fashion and Fitness Model, and a natural born philosopher of life. Loved by all, he is kind and generous with his time and energy. Some refer to him as “The cat and dog whisperer” as animals gravitate to him, and he has a tender and special relationship with all animals.

Clay inspires all those around him with his unexpected sense of humor and his authentic optimism. It’s hard to be down in the presence of this uplifter. Spiritual, but not religious, Clay has a deep understanding for the complexities of life, and the unseen influences that guide us all on our paths.

Clay was born on Long Island, New York, but shortly after his birth, his parents moved to Utah where he has lived ever since. In the winters, you can find him on the steepest ski slopes in the Wasatch Mountains, in the summer, he is jumping huge wakes in the waters of Lake Powell, and in the spring and fall, you will likely find him biking on mountain switchbacks as he races his brothers down the rocky hills.

Clay’s workout routine includes 6 days a week muscle-sculpting at the gym, with 4 of those days including a strenuous power yoga practice. Both strong and flexible, many refer to Clay as a modern day “Greek God” – confident, yet humble, Clay doesn’t let this go to his head. He knows the work and dedication it takes to create and maintain a beautiful body, and he inspires others to do the same.
