After serving just over 5 years in the US Marine Corps Jason came home and opened a small affiliate gym in Northern Indiana while working with the local Sheriff's Department. Once he began his pursuit of knowledge in the Westside Methodology the nature of the gym changed, and he now runs one of the very few Westside Barbell Certified Gyms in the world (Applied Strength & Conditioning) Jason appeared on Westside's radar through the world of strength and conditioning for MMA, we contacted him and he was brought out to prove whether or not he actually knew what was going on. Having worked with a UFC title contender and several pros and amateurs it was clear that his application of Louie's methods was executed properly. On top of his full time job here at Westside as our national sales manager, Jason is also on the Westside Barbell Seminar Team alongside Tom Barry. With nearly a decade in the training world in various capacities ranging from helping younger Marines perform more pull ups in a PFT, to owning a gym, and training athletes Jason has proven to be an integral part of the continuing evolution of Westside Barbell, and brings a very unique a thorough approach to teaching our methods and proper equipment use to coaches of nearly any sport.
