Jason Stacy  ATC, CSCS Mindset & Performance Coach, Soft Tissue Therapist, Speaker/Educator, Mentor

Jason Stacy has over 20 year’s experience as a High-Performance Coach and Soft Tissue Therapist. He says coaching more than his job, it is part of his DNA.

Jason has physically and mentally prepared some of world’s best athletes & coaches in a number of sports across the globe. Including, Tennis, Swimming, Golf, Professional Dance, Combat Sports (MMA/BJJ/Wrestling), Gymnastics, Table Tennis, Football, & Soccer.

Many of his athletes have qualified for their countries National and Olympic teams.

Following his Mindset & Movement methods, several of his athletes have become Olympic, World and Commonwealth Champions.

After living on 4 different continents and working in over 30 countries, it is natural that he takes a “Person First” approach to his coaching. He strongly believes to build a champion, you must spend equal amounts of time & energy on developing the person, not just the player. The Mindset and the Movement are inseparable.

When he is not mentoring coaches or helping his athletes become the best in the world, you will find him doing 1 of 3 things, Studying, Teaching, or Sweating…and often he’s doing all 3 at once!!

Jason’s business, The Coaching Sweet Spot focuses on the further development of coaches, trainers and therapist via his Mindset Movement Mentorships and various Practical, Hands-on Workshops. Of course, he also continues to train and treat a variety of athletes in a wide range of sports from junior to elite.

Loyalty, Purpose, Passion, & Trust.

These words are what Jason refers to as his, “COMPASS”

The guiding force behind all his actions.
