About Jason

Hey guys!  My name is Jason and I'm here to help you identify and achieve your fitness goals for a healthier and happier life!  I was born and raised in Michigan and graduated from Michigan State, GO GREEN!!  Health and wellness have always been a major part of my life but my career began in operations for Nestle so I have made my way around the country (California, Wisconsion, Ohio, and now NYC).  

I played soccer my entire life but also love the outdoors which started with Boy Scouts at a very young age.  Although it has been some time since  earned my Eagle Scout award, I still try to get out and go hiking or camping as often as possible and love staying active.  Since relocating to NYC in 2014, I have found myself at the gym more often than most.  

My personal training experience began with my roommate in Wisconsin, Shout out to Blanco who lost 40 pounds training with me on a regular basis.  From that point on, I knew the gym was my happy place.  Since then I've worked with friends and family members but made it official at the beginning of 2017 when I started working for Equinox as a personal traininer.  

My favorite client story

My very first client was my roommate in Wisconsin who was a great cook and enjoyed his partying. Because we were friends first, he was a little skeptical of my approach but after 6 months of hard training and a disciplined diet, he was able to drop 50 lbs! Proud of the hard work Blanco!

My favorite exercise

Alternating dumbbell bench press.

My favorite quote

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times. - Bruce Lee

My training philosophy

Get really good at the basics and all else will fall in place.
