WHO AM I?

Hi, I’m Jason! I’m a personal trainer and precision nutrition coach based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I love teaching, writing, and lifting heavy things up and putting them back down again.

I help busy people blow the doors off their fitness goals with a combination of experience, education, and wizardry providing great systems.

I may write like my mom should’ve been chasing me with a bar of soap at some point in my life (she might have a couple times!), but my clients think I’m a really f*cking nice guy. No, really. (See my testimonials here)

I’ve spent over 17 years neck deep in this lifting thing and I love it. Experience can show us our mistakes but education and coaching can show us how to not continue making them. To that end, I’ve been blessed enough to have had great mentors over the years as well as constantly pursuing the most relevant education. I continue to walk the walk by participating in the sport of powerlifting as both a lifter and coach.

I get it, I’ve been there.

Like most people who wander into the gym for the first time, I’ve had my share of struggles that led me there. I’ve battled with blocking out the sun being really overweight a couple times in my life, being unhappy with my reflection, unmotivated and unable to find the time. I’ve suffered from various injuries that have made me second guess my will to train and I’ve at times felt frustrated and lost in stalled progress. I get it.

Coaches at times need coaches too, and every time I’ve committed to the process I’ve come out better.

A smart plan and the right actions go a long way. So this is what I offer, smart plans and ways to take action.

I spend most of my time training real people in a real gym but work with people offline and online in various capacities.

WHAT IS BID?

BID stands for “bring it daily”.

I chose the name as a reminder that reality is shaped by our actions. It’s knowing every day we can take actions that allow us a chance at developing our true potential or hold us back. BID is about using the right actions to bid on your potential and always represent your best self.

This starts with taking charge of your most important asset, your body.

We all define our fitness by different standards but meeting those standards allows us to be better at everything else we do.

Your life is busy and I recognize that’s not about to change, but that doesn’t mean your best self is out of reach. My mission is to show you how to make the process manageable, clear, and simple. Not easy, but simple and ultimately rewarding.

To bring it daily means, never surrendering to being too busy, stuck, or feeling hopeless.

It’s challenging “good enough” and creating new standards, your standards.

It’s recognizing every day as an opportunity rather than a challenge.

It’s finding new or better ways of doing things and choosing to try and to keep trying.

It’s about taking back control, creating our vision, and always moving it forward.

“If you ask me how I want to be remembered, it is as a winner. You know what a winner is? A winner is somebody who has given his best effort, who has tried the hardest they possibly can, who has utilized every ounce of energy and strength within them to accomplish something. It doesn’t mean that they accomplished it or failed, it means that they’ve given it their best. That’s a winner.”

– Walter Payton
