My name is Kathleen and I am the parent of a high school student who has been training with Jason for almost two years now. My son Josiah is a football player at Canton High and Jason has taken on the challenge of training Josiah so that he can perform well for the team and avoid injury, Jason has really delivered on this challenge. Josiah is much more sure of himself both physically and mentally as a direct result of his work with Jason. During the fall 2009 season, while many of his teammates struggled with injuries Josiah remained healthy and in the game. Jason offers my son more than just strength training, he offers him a extraordinary role model. Jason is able to motivate Josiah every time he meets with him. Josiah leaves his training time inspired to be more healthy and determined to be more committed to personal excellence. Jason also sets an example for consistency and perseverance. In addition to these important character traits Jason is a very organized and efficient coach. He is always ready on time and fills each session with plenty of HARD work. There is no time wasted and he has managed to keep my son very engaged and committed. The time and money we have invested with Jason has been resources well spent and we are really grateful that Jason is working with Josiah! We will be with Jason for a long time to come.

Jason Karson has been my personal trainer for about 12 years. I am a teacher with 38 years of teaching behind me, and a lot of my stamina, I attribute to my workouts with Jason. After every workout with him, I feel stronger and more energetic. He knows what I need and tailors the hour with exercises that help me. He has also helped me through sore shoulders, bursitis and a sprained ankle with just the right exercises!

I had gastric bypass surgery and wanted to incorporate an exercise program into my new lifestyle. I had NEVER exercised before, so I was a little unsure of what to expect. Jason worked with me to understand my individual needs and to create an exercise program that wasn't intimidating. He really understood the challenges of someone who had never exercised. His program has increased my confidence and abilities. Now, I actually look forward to my workouts every week! Jason has made the program fun and challenging and has been a critical key to my weight loss success!

I'm a 34 year old male who sustained a lower back injury that required months of physical therapy. After leaving physical therapy I continued to do the same prescribed workout. Over time, the workout became dull, less challenging and ineffective. I was afraid of change and pushing myself harder, since I didn't want to re-injure my lower back again. I knew I needed help if I wanted to make significant and lasting improvements. That's when I found Jason's website where he expressed his idea of post physical therapy exercise design. I could not have agreed more with Jason' view and I contacted him immediately and scheduled an evaluation. It was apparent upon meeting Jason that he had the knowledge and professionalism I was looking for. Jason listened to my concerns and he immediately gained my trust. Jason designed a specific exercise program to increase my strength, flexibility and range of motion. With Jason's help I have pushed my body farther than I would have on my own and have made significant strength improvements. Most importantly, I have never re-aggravated my lower back injury while working with Jason, which I attribute to Jason's knowledge and professionalism. I have 100% trust in Jason and will continue to seek his assistance.

Jason at Envision Strength is great. I am a 39 year old father of 2, self employed (Work with my hands) and I thrive on physical competition. I was in great condition until tearing my rotator cuff last summer. My exercise routine stopped and I quickly lost muscle and was starting to put on some fat. I was trying to avoid surgery but of course I was experiencing pain, weakness and instability. I went to see Jason for help. Jason created a program just for me and my specific goal. By working on the surrounding muscle in my shoulder, as well as the rest of my body, I have regained some strength, alot of stability, and I have much less pain. I believe I will still need to have the tear repaired but Jason has helped me to stay productive at work and home until my schedule permits some down time. I am sure that the progress I have made with Jason will decrease the recovery time as well. Jason is a great professional, and fun person to be around. He is also active in his church and community. The most important thing to me was that his approach was not your "one size fits all" fitness routine. He assessed my condition, and based on my goals, he got me back on track. I am excited when I am able to refer him to people I know because I am sure they will be as grateful as I to have had an opportunity to meet him.
