Coach Jason was a competitive athlete for 20 years. Throughout his highschool and college careers, he experienced his own struggles with injuries and pain management, piquing his interest in anatomy and physiology. Due to an unexplainable back injury, his promising soccer career was cut short and he decided to begin his journey in the study of strength and conditioning.
Jason received his B.S. from Wichita State University in Sport and Facility Management. To add to his versatile strength and conditioning resume, he is currently in pursuit of his M.S. in Athletic Performance and Nutrition from Concordia University. After working for the Kansas City Royals organization he realized the sedentary desk life wasn’t for him and moved to New York.
In his 8 years of living in New York he has completed three mentorships with the Institute of Motion. He is a Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) Mobility Specialist, a Functional Range Assessment (FRA) Specialist, and a StrongFirst I Kettlebell (SFG) instructor. He has completed over a years worth of continuing education to be a Precision Nutrition coach, and now works with our members and sport performance programs alongside Dietician Lauren in our ILP nutrition program. He is also a pre/post natal certified coach and has helped many expecting mothers during their journeys into motherhood.
Today, Jason has developed into a fantastic coach and instructor. As part of the ILP team he performs assessments, writes programs, coaches the many members and athletes of our community, he also is our head Kinstretch instructor. We are happy to call him one of our own!
