Jaalen Jones is a Miami-based Personal Trainer and University of Miami Alumni who holds a Bachelor’s of science in Exercise Physiology with minors in Sports Medicine and Sports Administration.
While at the University of Miami, Jaalen served as the Captain of the University’s Track and Field team. Prior to his college career, Jones was the first Gatorade Alabama Boys Track & Field Athlete of the year to be chosen from his high school. As a member of the World Youth Track & Field team, he had the opportunities to compete internationally in Donetsk, Ukraine and Puerto Rico.
Though Jaalen was an accomplished Track & Field athlete, his career came to an abrupt end after rupturing his Achilles tendon his junior year in college. His recovery included immense mental and physical challenges including relearning how to walk & redefining his identity as a post-collegiate athlete.
Through this recovery Jaalen discovered that his purpose is to elevate, motivate, and inspire those around him in order to break the mental barriers that we construct in our minds.
