Jason Falcon

Owner | Nutrition Coach (Precision Nutrition, Pn1 / NASM-FNS)

Going into my 5th year in the health and fitness industry, I’ve now worked with over 3,000 clients around the world. I’ve lost close to 90lbs myself through getting my nutrition in order and gone from having panic attacks thinking about exercise when I was 250lbs+ to now loving every aspect of fitness.
I have helped hundreds individuals transform themselves. From folks losing 200lbs+ and taking their lives back, to high level athletes needing just that extra fine tuning to qualify for competitions, and everything in between. Busy working mom or dad? Seemingly no time to take of YOU? I will show you a sustainable way!

Emma Falcon

Nutrition Coach (NASM-CNC)

About 8 years ago, When my daughter was two, I found myself struggling, mentally and physically. I was the heaviest I had been in my life, at 175 pounds at 5'3" and stuck. It wasn't until then, that I said "enough is enough!!" So, I did P90x, Crossfit, and all of the things to get this weight off!! But....... I learned that my training was never going to outweigh the way I was eating. I was introduced to tracking macros, hit that sweet spot, and there was no turning back! The weight came off, workouts felt strong, and most importantly I didn't have to say to my daughter "Mommy's too tired". Getting to a point where I knew the what's and why's of food brought me into a state of bliss. Being a real-world, busy, and on the go now mother of two kids, I knew I needed to stay healthy for them!

I have been an advocate for fitness and nutrition for most of my adult life. I've done Crossfit, I've been a competitive powerlifter, and now I love my Orange Theory, practice in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and look forward to competing and celebrating my training! Dialing in my nutrition has tremendously helped me through all of this! So much so that I pursued my nutrition coaching certification and have followed my passion toward sharing this journey with others. I'm thrilled to continue sharing my love for nutrition and help my clients to reach that same state of bliss, help change their mindset about how and what they are eating, create long term sustainable success, and a knowledge of food that will last for a lifetime!

Katie Condon

Nutrition Coach MS, RD, LDN

I was first introduced to how vital nutrition is in one of my science courses where I was taught by a Registered Dietitian during my Junior year of college. After graduating with my business degree and working for a successful retail company, I knew that my passion was nutrition education and went back to school to pursue my nutrition degree. Despite all my education and becoming a Registered Dietitian with a master’s degree in nutrition, I still struggled with my weight and finding a nutrition program that I could adhere to as a lifestyle without feeling restricted. I finally found that program 2.5 years ago and feel at ease with my lifestyle knowing that I can still enjoy all my favorite foods without eliminating food groups or following meal plans. Now, I focus on how nutrition can fuel my favorite workouts like weightlifting and cycling.

Working in a clinical setting, I have seen diseases that could have been prevented with nutritional intervention and love working with people to change their lives for the better. I feel just as passionate with coaching to help you achieve your goals. It’s never too late to feel like your best self and today is the perfect time to start!

Melissa Cooley

Nutrition Coach, NASM-CNC

Hi! I’m Coach Missy.

I'm a 38 year old mom of 18yr old twins and 12yr old triplets. I love being a Mom & a nutrition coach! My biggest passion and reason for becoming a nutrition coach was to help people successfully make changes in their life instead of just wishing for better. I learned nutrition has an impact on every area of your life!

My personal struggles with weight started in my teens. I ate my feelings and carried that into adulthood. As I got older the weight just crept up out of control. The stresses of life had me thinking there's no way I can focus on my health. But how could I not?! My energy was literally running out! I was tired all of the time and I skipped out on most things that I felt were out of my endurance ability. I had no idea how food worked in my body or how to live healthy in my crazy life! I thought I was too busy, too far gone, had too low of a metabolism, and that it was all just simply too out of reach.

I needed to do something! So a few years ago I signed up to work with coach Jason. I needed a program that could hold me accountable, offer me lasting results, and give me a solid success plan. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. To say he helped me change my life would be an understatement!

With his help, I learned to manage my food intake, power through weak moments, and give myself grace. I’m proud of my victories and done with wrong mindsets. The best part is that I’ve learned the skills to have control over how I want to live. Food doesn't tell me how to feel anymore! I now have a healthy relationship with my food, more energy for my family, and more drive and desire to exercise and try new things. I love and enjoy all the things that used to give me anxiety. I love to explore new places, go to the gym, go for long walks with my hubby, travel, ride my bike, and play with my kids. I finally feel healthy enough to live the life I’ve always wanted to participate in. I just feel BETTER!

The whole process inspired me to want to help others take the journey to take back their lives on their terms. It’s been a privilege to study and become a certified nutrition coach for Team Falcon. I’m excited to help people change their lives! I can't wait to equip you and support you through this awesome time in your life! I’m going to be there for you, support you, and teach you the skills for making good nutrition choices so you’ll have real success. So unpack all those big dreams and goals and let's go!


Nutrition Coach, Pn1

I’ve always been heavy. From grade school on, except for a short period in college, I was always big. I just thought that’s how I am. After hitting an all-time high at age 35 realizing how fast 40 was coming, I made some adjustments and dropped the weight, but some of it came back and felt like I failed. Again.

It wasn’t until my mid 40s that I started moving on a regular basis. Even after a couple of years despite my nutrition knowledge, eating “clean”, and working out 5-6 times a week at my CrossFit gym, I realized what I was doing still was not working for me. It was when I started working with a nutrition coach that I realized how much I was really consuming and the habits that led me to 270 pounds at 5’11”.

Having been through the mental and physical shift to a sustainable lifestyle without unnecessary restriction, I now have strategies that have spilled over into other areas that aren’t just about food. Now, I can help others do the same. Life can be busy, but we’ll learn how to navigate this together.

If you’re ready to learn and willing to do the work, I’m in. Let’s change your life for the better.

I’m married with 2 kids, 3 dogs, and fill my free time with cooking, coffee, Marvel and Star Wars movies, free weights, Peloton bike, and whatever else my family has planned.

Kerri McHale


I’ve been been a health, wellness, and fitness enthusiast for a good part of my adult life, but my journey truly began after receiving my first college degree, a BS in marketing, in 1991. Disillusioned by the business world, I decided to fill my time between job-hunting by becoming an aerobics instructor. The course was taught by a physical therapist and I was immediately enchanted by her knowledge and mastery of the human muscular system. The rest as they say is history. I applied to a Masters program and received my masters degree in physical therapy in 1996. I continue to work in this capacity serving both the geriatric population and a multitude of different pathologies in a clinical outpatient rehab setting specializing in Pilates. I am also Pilates reformer certified and consider that one of the great healers of chronic pain.

Full disclosure, while I’ve never had a significant, health-concerning problem with being overweight, I have definitely had extra pounds and have been less fit many times in my life. Finally dialing in my nutrition four years ago changed my life for the better in more ways than I can count. It spilled over into all aspects of my life and even gave me the discipline to get out of debt. Becoming a nutrition coach and helping others reach their goals feels like the cherry on the sundae of my life 😊

I can tell you that I am no stranger to hard work. After many painful experiences in my life, I have been known to turn to other means of self medicating that I have had to leave behind to become a better me. So believe me when I tell you… I get you. I get the difficulty of the journey. I get the struggles. I get the wanting more for yourself. I get what it feels like to succeed at a goal, and to fail. If you trust me with your journey, together we will make your life change.

I make my life in Scranton, Pa (hey Office fans!!) and my other passions include my children Mairin and Grace (all grown up now), my fur babies Phinneas and Hazel (and let’s face it all fur babies), coaching CrossFit athletes and, oh yeah, silver hair 👩🏼‍🦳🙂!

I am thrilled to be a part of the Falcon family and i am excited to bring you into the best version of you imaginable.

Kirsten McBride

Nutrition Coach (Precision Nutrition, Pn1)

Hello! I grew up in the small town of Clarksdale, Mississippi where BBQ, fried chicken, oxtails, mac n cheese, candied yams and cornbread reign supreme! I now live in Houston, Texas where everything, including food, is quadrupled in size! Growing up, I was super active in sports and activities. I played four years of college basketball and our diets during the season were strictly monitored by the coaching staff, plus our metabolisms were roaring like Mustangs, so extra weight wasn’t an issue or even a thought. But who knew after my playing career was over, that I would gain over 40 pounds due to inactivity and poor food choices?! I sure as heck didn’t, and I had no idea of how to get that weight off. Like many, I tried many diets, low-carb, no-carb (like what?!), Paleo, Weight Watchers, and many others, and I had success with them all, but they were never sustainable and were SUPER restrictive. Enter in Jason Falcon and counting macros. The concept blew my mind and changed my life for the absolute BEST! Jason taught me that diets shouldn’t be restrictive, they should be flexible and sustainable. Ya’ll, I lost 40 pounds and honestly outside of college basketball, I was in the best shape of my life. Thanks to Jason, my energy was high, I slept better, I built healthy habits, I learned the makeup of the food I was eating, and muscles were being revealed literally everywhere!

I want to be a beacon of hope and light for others, especially those in minority communities, that health and fitness doesn’t have to be hard or unattainable. I would love to shout from the rooftops that counting macros and building sustainable habits is a change in mindset, that leads to a change in lifestyle. Sure you can have that piece of fried chicken every once in a while, but do you really need four pieces?! I’m so grateful to represent Falcon Nutrition as a Nutrition Coach, and I’m eager to show people who are on the fence about joining, that their nutrition goals ARE attainable!

Nutrition Coach (NASM-CNC)

I watched my parents try just about every diet there was. They'd lose weight and then gain it back, maybe even gain back more. I figured that was in the cards for me as well. Even though I was working out really consistently (and have always been active), once I hit my late thirties and early forties, the pounds started packing on.

Cue my time with Jason. I learned so much from him and about how food actually works for and against us. I've developed a passion for everything nutrition-related which drove me to complete my nutrition coaching certification so I can share my knowledge and experience with others and help them have these breakthroughs of their own.

The beauty of this program is the sustainability of it. I love sweets, pizza, burgers, etc. Learning how to eat this way lets me have those things. Since I've started living the macro life, I've NEVER once felt deprived of anything. What I've learned and put in place can keep me like this forever. A lot of people lose weight but never learn what to do afterwards. I want to help people see through all of that. Food and everything around it can seem overwhelming, but it really doesn't need to be.

I'm a husband, dad (human and canine), fun-loving, glass-half-full-kind-of-guy. I love movies, sports, being outside, good TV shows, and just being present with family and friends.

I'm so very thankful for my opportunity to help people as a Nutrition Coach with Falcon Nutrition. I always say to leave the world better than you found it -this is another way for me to do that!

Tom Schmeding

Nutrition Coach (NASM-FNS)

My struggles with weight started when I was a child and I’ve spent the majority of my life overweight. While this was beneficial as an offensive lineman, it wasn’t beneficial to my health. As a college athlete, I was regularly encouraged to gain weight which left me graduating college at 345 pounds (I’m 6’6”). At the age of 24, I lost my father to Leukemia and turned to food as a way to deal with my grief. My eating habits were leading me down an unhealthy path.

Over the years I tried fad diet after fad diet, with some immediate success, but I was never able to maintain the fat loss. In fact, I would eventually weigh more than when I started! My wife and I still joke about the time we were paleo and dipped 2 pounds of bacon into a large bowl of guacamole thinking that was a “healthy” snack.

In 2015 I was blessed with the birth of my first son and becoming a father made me rethink my lifestyle. Since I had lost my father at a young age, I wanted to do everything in my control to ensure that I could always be there for my family. I began to use a flexible approach by tracking macronutrients and it made me more aware of what I was putting into my body. I was able to maintain a weight of 245 pounds and improve my mental and physical health, well being, and lifestyle. The best part is I am able to enjoy running and playing with my kids and I am able to participate in whatever they want to do. I reside in Rutherford, NJ with wife Danica, our two boys that are seven and four, and our dog, Bailey. Some of my hobbies include reading, traveling, working out (powerlifting, running and peloton), meeting new people and playing with my boys.

I wanted to be a nutrition coach to help others with something I struggled to overcome my whole life. To help the busy parent who wants to run and play with their kids or the person who has tried every diet and weight loss method and has nowhere else to turn. There is so much misinformation on nutrition out there and my goal is to simply and make it easy while focusing on strategies and habits.

I believe that my success depends on your success and together we are a team!

I had struggled with food and body image for years. I tried so many diets and trends but I could never stick to them for longer than 2 weeks. I didn't succeed with those because giving up food groups and dealing with tedious meal plans just wasn't for me. A couple years ago, my wedding was in the not so distant future and I knew I needed to do something I could stick to that would get me to my goal while simultaneously getting me feeling great on my big day. Not only did I reach my goals through tracking macros, but I also gained a wealth of information about food and myself. I was hooked and I knew that I wanted more people to know that there was another way!

I share my home with my wonderful husband and my spoiled pup, Gracie. I've been a vegetarian for over 20 years and I'm a big animal person. I like hot yoga, lifting and running in local 5ks and 10ks throughout the year. I enjoy organizing and creating everything from infographics to spreadsheets!
