Jon’s Health Story
I have played sports at a high level, and applied principles in nutrition for over a decade. However, growing up, despite my parents requests otherwise, I ate very poorly. When given the choice, I mainly consumed white bread, sugar, and meat. That all changed when I met Dave Meyer who had just finished an off-season with the Indianapolis colts. He let me read his NFL training camp manual which talked about the importance of diet and nutrition for athletes. As I read, my whole outlook on what I was eating began a transformation. I was never the biggest or the fastest player, but the things I learned and applied about nutrition helped give me numerous advantages in strength, energy, performance and recovery over my competitors and I count my diligence in this area as one of the primary factors in my ability to play sports at a high level.
I played for University of Virginia’s football program from 2004-2008. After starting my career as a walk-on, I ended up leading the team in tackles 3 years in a row. My career culminated in professional tryouts, including being invited to the Green Bay Packer’s 2009 Rookie Mini Camp along with Clay Matthews.
Since finishing my career, I have been in the field of health and nutrition.
