Wellcore Founder's Story - Texas Born

In his late 20's, co-founder and CEO of Wellcore Jason Whitson sustained a devastating back injury while working out at the gym. In fact, his injury was so significant that he was bedridden for weeks.

As Jason remembers it, “My body just shut down.”

He embarked on a long road to recovery but even after several months of rehabilitation, his emotional, mental and physical health were suffering extensively. 

Jason continued his rehabilitation, started taking over the counter supplements, improved his diet and made lifestyle changes. He tried working out harder than he normally did.  But still, there was a lot missing in his life.

“None of that had the impact that I was expecting.I simply couldn’t get back to the man who I was before the injury,” he says.Jason went to a doctor, had his blood checked, and the results changed the rest of his life.

“The doctor came in, sat me down, and told me that I had the testosterone levels of a 65-year-old man,” says Jason. “This was the first time in my life that someone had explained how important testosterone is and how it can so powerfully impact your life for the worse if you have a hormone deficiency.”

Within several weeks after starting a hormone optimization program, Jason started feeling more like himself  - the man whom he had been chasing since his injury.

He was once again able to do the things that were most important to him in life.

“It’s fantastic to feel great physically - to have the energy and stamina to work out and play sports - but honestly, some of the best benefits I have experienced since beginning hormone optimization have impacted my emotional and mental health,“ says Jason.

“My mood, focus and motivation have all improved. My overall well-being is the best it’s ever been and I’m in my 40’s. But I’m also confident that I’ll feel just as good or even better in my 50s and 60s.”

Now Jason is on a mission to enhance the lives of millions of men and women.

“We’re led to believe that, as we age into our 30’s and beyond, we’re supposed to feel progressively worse,” said Jason. “Nothing can be further from the truth. Now more than ever, we have greater control over our lives and we can take back what time takes away. Hormone optimization is the absolute best catalyst for improving your life emotionally, mentally and physically.”

This didn’t just change my life, it saved it,” says Jason.

Before venturing into healthcare, Jason held executive positions in the defense industry, sports, human performance, and entertainment spaces. He co-founded a fitness technology startup called Gritness, which was acquired by Under Armour. He then joined that brand as Director of Product at Under Armour Connected Fitness. While at Under Armour he led product, design, and engineering for the MapMyFitness platform and its 47 million users as well as the development of UA’s first ever smart running shoe.
