Jon has always had a passion for sport, exercise, and health. Following this passion he graduated with a degree in Sport, Health, Exercise and Nutrition in 2014 and then went on to obtain a Level 5 Diploma in Sport and Remedial Massage therapy in 2015 from the London School of Sports Massage (LSSM).
