About Julian Smith

Julian started his fitness career as a competitive Natural bodybuilder in the pacific northwest. In 2014 he signed up for Instagram and started posting video clips from his workouts. In the last 8 years, he's built a cult-like following around his unique yet straight forward training style, over a million followers strong.

Julian is an educator and an innovator, with a distinct respect for the old-school bodybuilding techniques. His relatable personality and no-nonsense approach attracts everyone from seasoned pros to first-time lifters. Julian's social media footprint has allowed him to expand his brand and in 2016 he launched a subscription based website (now an app) that allows members to follow along with his exact workouts on The Daily Pump. He founded a clothing line, Clifford Lenox, and in June of 2019, he partnered with Doug Miller to create Arms Race Nutrition.

When he's not in the gym, you can find Julian boating on the Columbia river, cruising the streets on a skateboard, and spending time with his wife Casey and two sons Cameron and Tommy.
