My name is Coach Jason, and I really appreciate you taking the time to be here, and I apologize that it has taken me this long to get my 1st post out to you.
If you’re here, you probably already know that I am a health & wellness coach, but who isn’t these days, right? So let me begin my 1st blog by telling you a little about me, and why I am a credible source within the field.
Let’s take it back to 2002, an 18-year-old me, and my family had just moved from Montreal, Quebec, Canada to the deep south of Stone Mountain, Georgia. Culture shock? Yeah, you could say that, but that’s another story for another time. Upon my arrival to Stone Mountain, I enrolled myself to the local community college. At the time, I was undecided about what I wanted to do with my life, until my mentor suggested I get experience in the health and wellness field by becoming the health & wellness chairman on the student government association. In that role, I got my first opportunity to gauge public health among my own community, and the results shocked me. I never realized how unhealthy much of my community was. I also got to experience the gratification that came along with helping someone find their own path to a healthier body. I then took what I learned from my community college and transferred to, Georgia Southern University, where I majored in Kinesiology, the study of human movement. After graduating,, I dedicated my time and effort towards coaching and empowering people thru health & fitness. Coaching has allowed me to travel the world and live in a few cool cities. I’ve successfully grown my coaching business in 3 different markets, Atlanta, New York, and currently Los Angeles, as well as helping corporations install health and wellness initiatives into their workplace.
Are you still with me? I hope my intro did not bore you, but it is important for me that you get to know who I am and what I believe in. I often preach to my current clients to be weary of where they get their fitness information from. In this era of social media, the fitness market is heavily saturated with information, too much of it, in my opinion, is either misleading, lacks objectivity, or is coming from unqualified sources. I’m not claiming that I know everything, but within my network of professionals that I’ve worked with over the last decade, I’m sure I can point you in the right direction whenever I am unable to help.
What to expect from my blogs? In a nutshell, I want to give you applicable strategies to help overcome common issues that the general population faces with health & wellness. Whether it’s weight loss, building muscle, where to begin with fitness, overcoming aches & pains or nutrition recommendations, and no I’m a not a registered dietitian nor am I trying to portray as one, please refer to an RD if you have any questions regarding changing your diet. I am simply here to share some science-based facts, and what my clients have done in the past to overcome the same issues you are facing. I will try to do this in small digestible amounts, as I feel this is the best way to learn and change behavior.
I look forward to speaking with you soon
In good health,
