As a lifetime fitness enthusiast, Jason discovered the strength, self-discipline and results that can be attained from cross-training. The experiences he had taking indoor-cycling classes were so inspiring that in 2012, after eight years in the finance industry, he left his desk-job behind for a career in fitness. Certified by Schwinn, Jason quickly developed a fiercely loyal following (aka Tran Fans) through teaching at NYHRC, NYSC, Reebok Sports, Sports Club/LA, Revolve Fitness, and Swerve Fitness. He’s become well known in NYC by his trademark playlists of the latest music and hard-to-find remixes and intense but fun teaching style. Jason has been featured in Women’s Health, NY Daily News, Well & Good NY and many popular fitness blogs. There’s no doubt that after a FHIX™ or two you will become a Tran Fan, too!
