MCW Fitness founder Jason McWalter practically grew up in a gritty downtown Seattle gym. As a sports-obsessed teen, he excelled under the guidance of trainer and former pro football player Joe Head.

But Joe did more than train muscles and sinew. Over the years, he became a trusted mentor and Jason, his apprentice. The two grew so close that Jason—and other gym regulars—once spent a Christmas break helping Joe move his entire operation.

No wonder Jason is so good with clients today. “Joe taught me how to build relationships with people—the intangibles you don’t learn in school,” he says.

Jason went on to earn his B.S. in Exercise and Sport Science from Oregon State University and worked several years as a trainer at a high-end Bellevue club. Returning to his urban roots, he opened MCW Fitness in 2011. Some of his Eastside clients followed him to Greenlake—and are still regulars at MCW today.

Jason specializes in sport-specific training, post-rehab strength training, sports nutrition and weight loss management. He incorporates his love of movement and diverse athletic background—including competitive weightlifting, soccer, football, rock climbing and more—to customize training for each client. Whether leading a functional fitness class or a coaching a one-on-one session, he is committed to transforming both his clients’ bodies—and their lives.

When he’s not in the gym, you can find Jason in the mountains rock climbing or snowboarding, or on a yoga mat practicing his headstand.
