My name is Jeason “Jey”, 26 years old from Paris. I've been practising sport since I was 6 years old, football, volleyball, Athletics, Boxe française, Handball, Basketball to name a few…
I've always been passionate about fitness and sport which lead me to a total career change from IT to PT. I started lifting weights at the end of 2011 and have been doing it since. My target is to be a complete athlete.
How long have you been a personal trainer?
I’ve been practising bodyweight training since 2013
How did you get you started?
After my first year and a half of weight training, I felt myself heavy and quite stiff. I also wanted a free environment where I could hold on to the gain but also get more agile and flexible. So myself & a friend decided to start training in a park.
What is your wellness philosophy?
If you want to eat whatever you want, you need to spend more calories in the gym!
What does a day in the life of Jey look like?
Early morning, late night!
5 to 6 hours of Sleep - Work - Train (7 days a week) - go home to work some more + the traditional youtube/netflix/documentary catch up to finish the day.
If you could only do 3 exercises, what would they be?
If I could do only 3 exercises It would defo be:
Pull up - Box jump - Push up
What’s your favourite breakfast?
French breakfast, no doubt! Baguette and butter, croissant, pain au chocolat, banana, yogurt, Milk and cereal, glass of orange juice.
Top tips for motivation?
