Jason Stoupas

Jason is the Founder and Head Coach of HUSLA.

Jase has an extensive background in Powerlifting which entails numerous achievements to date.

Jason has identified the key role that hypertrophy plays in Powerlifting, as well as your journey towards becoming strong. His love of competing in the sport of Powerlifting has been instrumental in the birth of HUSLA, wishing others to share the exhilarating experience that Powerlifting offers.

Growing up playing Football & Basketball throughout his schooling years, an injury derailed his ability to play sport. In 2011 his attention turned towards strength and hypertrophy training, with the goal of improving his lower back injury and to become as big and as lean as possible which is a goal that many of his clients share today. His love of training, competing and coaching has now evolved into HUSLA.
