Most people are lucky if they succeed at one discipline. For Jason Fowler, he’s defied the odds—twice.
At the young age of 10, Jason was already a nationally ranked amateur motocross racer. Born with a natural competitive drive, he pushed himself to develop his skills and become the best in his field.
Jason was well on his way to going pro. That is, until one fateful day when he was preparing for an upcoming race. While riding his motorcycle, he hit a rock, which caused him to land directly on his head, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. He was 17 years old.
Despite a new world of challenges waiting for him, Jason refused to give up. After shifting his talents from motocross racing to handcycling, he set out to take on marathons, triathlons, and even the IRONMAN World Championship. He wanted to push himself to conquer the greatest challenge he could find.
With over 150 road races, 36 marathons, 37 triathlons, and five IRONMAN World Championships (two of which he won) under his belt, Jason is nowhere near slowing down. When he’s not busy training for the next big race, he dedicates his time to coaching people on how to achieve their own dreams.
