About The Guest:
Jason Beim is an average Joe who has been overcoming and conquering his entire life. From an early age, Jason has been getting punched in the face by life and found himself in some incredibly deep and dark places. But as you’ll hear, his story truly exemplifies the power of change and discipline. Jason has suffered through addiction, obesity, depression, crippling anxiety and suicidal thoughts. Having battled with drug addiction for some time when he was younger, Jason found himself at the very bottom when he was robbed at gunpoint in the projects of New York City in a drug deal gone bad. After being given an ultimatum by his high school girlfriend, Jason kicked the drug habit, but he redirected his addiction and became addicted to an even more powerful drug, food. Throughout this dark time in his life, although he wasn’t actually in jail, Jason was trapped in his body in a physical, mental and emotional prison. He was a slave to drugs and food and used these vices as an escape from reality to numb his pain.
In May 2011 after graduating college, Jason again found himself at yet another low point in his life, weighing his heaviest at 303lbs. After being in denial when looking at the reflection staring back at him in the mirror, he didn’t realize how far he had spiraled until seeing how heavy he was in his college graduation picture. It was in that moment that Jason made a decision that enough was enough and it was time to make a change and take back control of his life. For the next year he became obsessed with breaking free of the chains of obesity and decided he was going to turn his life around and start losing weight. Within that year, Jason went on to lose over 130lbs and transformed his outlook on life in the process.
Today, Jason is extremely passionate about sharing his transformational journey and showing people just like him (average Joe’s and Jane’s) who feel stuck and without hope – that no matter who you are, no matter where you are, if you are unhappy with your current station, you can make a change for the better and you too can live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. His purpose now is to help people reach their untapped potential by using discipline, positivity and motivation. Through these methods, he helps people stay disciplined when life punches them in the mouth. He turns average Joe’s and Jane’s into Tier One Peak Performers in their everyday life! And he is doing this through his newly launched coaching brand, Jump Above Boundaries.
