Triathlete Trainer & Coach | Columbia, SC

Jason is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor interested in helping others set and reach fitness and wellness goals.  He and his wife Katie are proud parents of 3 active boys.  He ran cross country and track in high school and played on the rugby and crew club teams in college.  After the birth of his first child he gained 30+ pounds and lived out of shape for several years before finding his passion for fitness again.  He now enjoys training and competing in triathlons and shares his love of swimming, cycling and running with others.  He loves to help others find a passion for fitness and healthy living habits.  Phased integral workout programs and proper diet creates proven results.  He always encourages proper fuel and hydration and is committed to help others mentally, physically and spiritually.
