    My name is Jason Barnes and I was born and raised in West Lafayette, Indiana and moved to San Antonio in October of 2012. I’ve made exercise and fitness apart of my lifestyle since my dad pushed it on me when I was 12 years old. He always said to me, “The best gift you could ever give yourself is the gift of health and fitness. Always take care of your body and you’ll live a long life.” With that being said, I enjoyed exercise so much that I decided to make it my career. I attended Thee Purdue University and graduated with a BS in Exercise Science. While attending Purdue I worked for the Strength and Conditioning team. I helped prescribe workout programs for football, wrestling, women’s soccer, and women’s basketball. After college I attended Indiana Therapeutic Massage School and got my National Certification in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. I now have over 5 years of experience in Personal Training and just over 1 year of massage experience. I’ve worked with individuals from 12 years old to 80+ years old from athletes to brain injury.

I take pride in what I do and will always try to challenge everyone, including myself, to become a better version of themselves.
