Hi, my name is Jason White. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio but just recently moved here from Texas. I am married to an active duty Army veterinarian named Hailey. We have been married for 5 years this October. We have a two year old son named Adam. He was named after a soldier from my detachment that was killed during my second of three deployments to Iraq.
I served almost 10 years in the Army reserves. I was wounded by an IED on my second tour and that is when I started studying to become a personal trainer. I started training people at Life Time Fitness and did that for 3 years. I was certified by the NASM as a CPT and PES. I have been into athletics all of my life. I was a three sport athlete in high school, played Div II football in college and played club rugby when I went back to school.
After my third and final deployment, I went back to school for a year before becoming a police officer. It’s during this time that I joined my first box, CrossFit Liberation. I was there while going through the police academy. After I graduated the academy I joined CrossFit Woodbridge and I was there for a year before a friend opened her own box, CrossFit Xfinity. It is there that I got my chance to coach CrossFit.
I was at Xfinity for about a year and half. During that time, I met my wife at a CrossFit competition. Less than a year later we were married and moved to Tennessee. I joined another box for about six months before I started doing private lessons for strongman competitions.
I’ve worked with people of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. I am a true believer in strength training and that is my absolute passion. Seeing people do things they never thought possible is so motivating and energizing.Coach Jason
I finally decided to finish up my degree and graduated from Austin Peay State University with a degree in health and human performance with a focus on strength and conditioning. I also became a certified strength and conditioning coach through the NSCA. I worked with Div I football, cross country and track and field athletes while I was there.
Shortly after graduation, we moved to San Antonio. There I ran bootcamp classes for Camp Gladiator before finding One Plus Strength and Conditioning. There I coached for another 15 months before COVID-19 hit us.
I have battled with several traumatic injuries that have caused me to restart my fitness journey and modify my training. I know the struggles of remembering of what you used to be able to do. I’ve dealt with body dismorphia, alcohol abuse, and PTSD related issues. I honestly believe my love for fitness and helping other people is what helped keep me focused on improving my life.
I’ve worked with people of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. I am a true believer in strength training and that is my absolute passion. Seeing people do things they never thought possible is so motivating and energizing. I look forward to serving the Sacris CrossFit community.
