In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Jason Curtis.

Jason left the British army in 2015 after serving 6-years as an army physical training instructor. He had no savings but was extremely driven to succeed within the civilian fitness industry.

The initial 6-months after leaving the armed forces were financially the hardest, he had ever experienced.  Yet, the thought of failing was terrifying to him.

Things were really slow to start. However, he realized early on that many seemingly average individuals were part-time Weightlifters, Powerlifters and Ultra-Athletes, and these people wanted expertise. So, he took the approach of “Bringing Strength and Conditioning to the Masses.”

He applied this approach to the sessions he ran and the content he created, and within 18 months, he opened his own strength and conditioning gym and gained a publishing deal for his first book, which became a bestseller on Amazon.

He still spends over 50 hours in the gym each week and has an ever-growing publishing schedule. However, he also dedicates time to his online academy and other ventures, such as delivering workshops internationally and mentoring fitness professionals and athletes online.
