Jason Struck has a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from VCU, where he is also currently pursuing his Master’s degree in the same field.
Jason holds the respected Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification from the NSCA, as well as an RKC from Pavel Tsatsouline, and has been CrossFit certified since 2008, and CrossFit Gymnastics certified since 2009.
When Jason opened Full Circle in 2008, he was not only the first RKC in Richmond, VA, but also one of the first CrossFit trainers in central Virginia. He’s certainly the first in Richmond to offer classes as a CSCS, RKC, and CrossFit trainer!
Jason’s background is in martial arts, where he realized early on that combative sports are just that: sports! Hence, combat athletes should train like athletes, not like their ancient Asian masters supposedly did. With this basic premise in mind, he pursued the accumulation of information on training for sport: most notably professional combat athlete preparation as well as collegiate athletics.
As a coach, Jason has specialized in introducing beginners to strength training and strength sports. As a lightweight strongman competitor (competing in classes from 175 to 220lbs), weightlifter and powerlifter, Jason has learned a lot about training for strength competitions. And after having introduced dozens and dozens of athletes to the same sports, he’s perfected his method in the Barbell Strength and Power class.
