Owner and Head Coach
Jase has been an active member of the Sun Peaks community for over 12 years and has a true passion for everything the area has to offer. He takes full advantage of the mountain lifestyle and the opportunities it provides - from coaching downhill biking, to serving as Founder and President of the Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Association, to helping design and build the course for the annual Bluebird Banked Slalom.
Along with his background in mountain bike coaching, Jase competed at the national level in swimming in his native Australia and was a competitive endurance mountain biker.
His journey to fitness coaching started like most with the simple goal of becoming fit and healthy. After losing 40 lbs and achieving gains in his fitness to compliment his hobbies of mountain biking and snowboarding, Jase recognised the benefits that structured gym workouts would bring to other mountain sport enthusiasts in Sun Peaks. When the opportunity to purchase Black Beaver Athletic from the original owners presented itself, Jase decided operating the gym was the best way to pursue his true passion: contributing to a happy and healthy Sun Peaks community.
