Jason was born and lives on the south coast of England. Following a five-year stint with the finest regiment in the British Army (1st Battalion Coldstream Guards), Jason dabbled in house-husbandry, becoming a stay at home dad to his two children.
As his children grew up and went to school, so too did Jason, deciding to take his love of all things training to the next level. He attended the University of Chichester between 2001 and 2010 to study toward a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science, an MSc in Sports Biomechanics, and a PhD in Sports Biomechanics.
Jason has researched the mechanical demands associated with the strength and conditioning process since 2005, teaching Sport and Exercise Biomechanics full-time at the University of Chichester since 2009. He currently teaches on undergraduate and postgraduate sports biomechanics modules, is supervising a full-time PhD student, and is working on development of a new MSc degree in strength and conditioning.
