JASON CAMPANA: Wellbeats
Jason is dedicated to training and coaching, whether that’s as a College Pro general manager, or as the vice president of a fitness company.

Here’s what Jason is up to now…
Education: University of Minnesota, B.S.
Rookie Year: 2003 (turf: Plymouth, MN)

Jason started with College Pro as a job site manager.
He got the bug and moved up to be a franchisee for two more summers. Jason was offered a position in Colorado as general manager, where he stayed for several years, and continued moving up the ladder as vice president in 2007. His team grew from being the smallest in the country to being the top performing, in just a year. All in all, he was with College Pro for 10 years.
College Pro Skills
“The biggest skill I got at College Pro would have to be problem solving. It gives you a lot of challenges all at once, so you learn to stay calm, keep your emotions out of problems, and never to get frazzled.” Jason highlights the importance of working with his team to stay level, as well as taking initiative. College Pro teaches you that if you want something, you better go out and get it!
