About me

I was born on June 7, 1977 in Tulare, CA. I have lived in Tulare for 26 years. I graduated from Tulare Western High School in 1995, In high school I competed in basketball and baseball all four years. After high school I went on to play college baseball at College of the Sequoias in 1996-1997 we won our conference, and in 1997 went to the Junior College World Series. From College of the Sequoias I received an athletic scholarship to an NAIA division 1 college, The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, CA. In 2000 we made it to the NAIA World Series, the first time in the schools history. During my years of competitive athletics, I learned the importance of proper strength training, flexibility, and nutrition.

After college I started working on my teaching credential and thought I was going to be a teacher and coach. I started personal training and realized my passion was in teaching and inspiring others to reach and achieve higher levels of health and fitness. I am passionate about helping people get in better shape, reach their fitness goals, and live a healthier lifestyle.

Gabe Jacobo, Junior Infielder Sacramento State Baseball, Brooks Wallace Watch List, 1st Team Preseason All WAC, Alaska Summer Baseball League All Star, ” Playing college baseball is very demanding and strenuous on the body, especially after we play about 60 games in a short amount of time, so staying healthy and working out is extremely important. When i come home in the off-season it is even more vital that I continue to work out and prepare for the upcoming season and I feel the best place to do that is wth Jason at Empower Fitness Training. Jason knows what he is talking about and keeps me focused and motivated to come in and work hard. Jason taught me a lot of new exercises I still use today and incorporated them into my workouts at school. I definitely recommend Jason and Empower Fitness to anyone who is serious about getting and staying fit.”

Robert Cardenas, ” I started with working out with Jason 4 months ago and I have noticed an increase in stamina and strength. The individual attention has broadened my knowledge of health, well-being, motivation, and fitness. I highly recommend Jason at Empower Fitness Training for all of your weight loss and exercise needs.

Martha Avina. “I never liked going to the gym, I was one of the many that would sign up for a years membership and only attend for two weeks, but sinceI have been at Empower Fitness Training everything has changed. I have had the great experience of being trained by Jason, I have lost 60 pounds in 3 months, and dropped 7 dress sizes. There is no way I could have done this on my own, thank you! Jason.
