Sports and fitness have been integral part of Jason’s life, from an early age he was a competitive swimmer and parlayed that into 6 years of being a certified swim instructor and lifeguard, throughout high school and college. He grew up in New Mexico and during the winters was also a snow ski instructor. During college he began an avid running career, averaging 20 - 30 miles a week, progressing to half marathons, then on to competing in triathlons. As a remedy for the aches, pains, and tightness that was associated with running and triathlon training, he started an aggressive yoga practice A broken femur ended his running and triathlon career. His personal trainer introduced him to Studio 6 as a rehab and pre-hab, preventing injury, during of their intensive HIIT training program and he has been hooked ever since. In his word, ‘The Megaformer is exactly what I needed, intensity without injury."
Tom’s been teaching software for over 20 years. After decades of sitting behind a computer screen with zero physical activity, Tom had his fitness awakening in 2014. As a late bloomer, once he started moving, he quickly dropped 40 pounds and has been an avid fitness enthusiast ever since. With long walks, daily cardio, and weights, he transformed himself in his 50s! Yoga turned out to be something Tom excelled at and within a year, found himself being asked to be a substitute instructor. Helping fellow yogis through tough routines and hit the poses with correct form, he found helping students reach physical goals as rewarding as communicating tough ideas to students in the classroom. In 2016, Tom discovered the Megaformer™ and was immediately addicted. Yoga got pushed way back so there was more time to focus on the Megaformer and the Lagree method. He could not be more enthusiastic about becoming a Studio 6 Instructor!
When Tom isn't coaching on the Megaformer, he can be found taking as many Studio 6 Megaformer classes as he can fit into his schedule.
