Jas Johal

My name is Jas Johal and I am an Entrepreneur, Kinesiologist, Husband, Writer and Triathlete. After graduating from UBC in 2011 with a degree majoring in Kinesiology alongside a Psychology minor, I co-founded FIT Nation. For over a decade I’ve worked as an entrepreneur and kinesiologist servicing primarily injury rehabilitation patients in Surrey, BC. In 2023 I stepped down as Co-owner and moved on by shifting my practice to the South Vancouver area.  I enjoy spending a lot of my recreational time swimming, cycling, running and reading.  My goal as a human is to raise awareness around the importance of optimal health and wellness while combating the prevalence of preventable disease within our South Asian community at large.  As a writer I hope to leave readers in deep thought while nudging them towards striving for the betterment of both humanity and themselves!
