Jason Del Grosso

Jason Del Grosso

Kinesiologist

Kinesiology is where two of my passions meet, exercise and helping others. My lifestyle is and was heavily surrounded by sports and physical activity, so much so, it became the foundation of my identity. When beginning my post-secondary career, I chose to follow this interest by studying kinesiology, receiving my diploma at Langara and my degree at UBC. Furthermore, my desire to work with and help others developed as I spent time coaching multisport programs and volunteering at physio clinics where I got the opportunity to work with diverse individuals every day.
