Hello, My name is Coach Jason Lara! I created The Movement Center in 2017 to help people build athleticism, mitigate injuries and develop their minds. I find much happiness in working with adults and children; nothing makes me feel more fulfilled than helping someone grow.
I was a NCAA DIV. 1 competitor for Oregon State University, trained at the United States Olympic Training Center, and traveled internationally to learn from Olympians. I currently coach at the Orange Crush Regional Training Center, a wrestling program based in Corvallis, Oregon.
Taking a holistic approach to training, I incorporate styles from a variety of different athletic practices and performance arts. I draw from principles of track and field, gymnastics, olympic weight lifting, grappling, and yoga to accomplish the goal of creating a more dynamic human being.
I strive to be objective, fair and kind in all undertakings. I seek simplicity in all things and to live fully in the present moment.
I love creating music with other people.
My pups Rocky and Bear are the sweetest little assholes I've ever come to love, and my girlfriend Hannah is the best thing to come into my life since coffee.
Feel free to call or text me anytime!
