My name is Jason Harris and I am 23 years old from Birmingham, AL. I am a Financial Analyst, NPC Physique Competitor, and Fitness Model.

1) How did you get your start in modeling and fitness?

I first became interested in fitness during my college years while working part time as a gym manager at The University of Alabama. Upon graduation my passion for the fitness industry grew and so did my interest in fitness modeling.

2) What do you enjoy the most about it?

What I enjoy most about fitness is constantly striving to become better than I was the day before. Overtime I’ve realized that living a healthy lifestyle not only can positively transform the body, but also the mind.

3) For those looking to get in better shape, what advice would you give them?

The best advice I can give someone looking to get in better shape is to believe in themselves and never give up. Often times people quit just before they begin making real progress. Anything worthwhile in life will not be easy, but it will be worth it.

4) What hurdles have you overcome while reaching towards your goals?

One of the biggest hurdles I and many others have to struggle with is that of self-doubt. The best way to overcome this is to motivate yourself daily and surround yourself with positive, ambitious people! Never let negativity linger for too long.
