Jason is the author of The Paleo Coach and co-host of the very successful Paleo Lifestyle and Fitness Podcast. He holds workshops on the Paleo lifestyle around the country with Sarah Fragoso, author of the popular Everyday Paleo cookbooks.
Jason’s passion for fitness and nutrition has kept him in constant pursuit of knowledge for over 15 years. As his understanding of nutrition grew and his training style evolved, he became frustrated with the fitness industry and the lack of real, life changing results people saw for the money they spent. Leaving the broken world of mainstream fitness and nutrition became his only option.
Jason’s nutrition knowledge is extensive, but his methods are unorthodox and very effective. It requires true passion to devote as much time to something as Jason does to reading medical studies and books on nutrition, physiology, biology, and epidemiology.
Exercise is something that Jason approaches with a scientific mind and engaging in movements that make sense to your body and prevent injury are his focus.
Jason now teaches Personal training and Nutrition Classes. While he enjoys training athletes, Jason finds the most gratification in helping normal people attain a level of health and fitness that they never thought possible, and he consistently does this every day at CPC Fitness and Fat Loss.
Sometimes it takes someone believing in you before you can believe in yourself. Someone to teach you how to change unhealthy habits, thoughts, and patterns. This is my passion. I am not like the average trainer in many respects, and this allows me to understand what it’s like at the starting line and how to hold my clients accountable.
As a really unhealthy woman ready to hit 50, I was able to change my course and health forever. One of the many wonderful things I learned was that I had an unquenchable desire to share the knowledge I acquired in my own journey. Becoming a trainer/coach was natural.
My passion is proving that age need not inhibit any of us. We will be as fit, healthy, and capable as we want to be. If you bring the desire to change, I will show you how.
Merisa [mur-issa] actually started out with us as a client with no desire for a career change, but she soon realized that she was not going to be able to ignore her new found passion for helping people find their way to excellent health and fitness. Merisa’s clients love her for her compassion and and her obvious drive to help them achieve their goals.
Those clients looking for a knowledgeable trainer who will take the time to understand their needs will be very happy with Merisa.
James is the quintessential trainer. His knowledge is vast, his application of that knowledge is impeccable, and everyone loves him. His soft touch comes with just the right amount of force and his ability to motivate his clients is magic. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it’s as if he was born to do this. James is certified as a personal trainer through the highly respected National Strength and Conditioning Association. Helping people reach their health and fat loss goals is not a phase he’s going through or a temporary career path. This is all James ever wants to do and he will never stop improving.
People who are intimidated by the idea of walking into a scary gym and trying to learn how to get healthy will find solace in working with James. He makes everyone feel like they can accomplish anything and his clients very quickly find the results they are looking for. If you doubt us, come in and meet him and form your own opinions.
During his last two quarters at Portland State University in 2009, Jeromie started an internship with Jason at CPC and soaked up his knowledge like a sponge. Jeromie moved to Utah and completed two semesters of graduate school at The University of Utah while he worked at a conventional fitness company in order to gain the experience necessary to help change the lives of as many people as possible.
The information he was learning was so mainstream, he found himself frustrated that he was expected to push the same information that had not given his clients the results they sought. After a phone call from Jason asking for his return to help with growth, Jeromie returned to Oregon the summer of 2011.
Jeromie became passionate about health and fitness after he realized that he needed to make lifestyle changes of his own. He is constantly staying up-to-date via the latest information offered from a variety of sources, including his favorite strength and conditioning coaches.
Jeromie understands that as information evolves, it is the trainer’s responsibility to learn, grow, and apply the information with clients. Education and certifications aren’t as important as application and experience. Whether your goals are performance related or health related, the foundation starts with nutrition, strength training, and mobility. Jeromie offers personal training and semi-private training. Jeromie’s goal is to change the world, one person at a time.
