PTP308 - Jason Cohen
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Jason Cohen about the impact of change and Big Change The Film. If anyone knows change, it’s Jason. At the age of 27 Jason found himself weighing almost 300 lbs and realized that he had to turn his health around. Over the next 7+ years Jason lost over 120 lbs, has become an athlete, and recently ran the Leadville Trail 100 mile race. He shares his journey with us and you will be surprised at how he created a mindset to lose this weight. It is different than any other transformation story we have heard so far.

He is a photographer & filmmaker from Lafayette, Louisiana. Jason is the director/producer of the upcoming documentaries Heavy As Lead and Big Change The Film. Jason also hosts a weekly podcast, Big Change the Film Podcast, where he has interviewed over 100 guests with a combined total weight loss of over 13,000 lbs.

Be sure to share this with someone you love today.
