The Champion Within

Jason Agosta

This is a series with fascinating and inspiring people, and what it takes to be the best you can at whatever your endeavours may be.

We will learn from others as to how they have handled themselves in their own pursuits, and so that we can apply to ourselves.

We’ll talk about the necessary support and how important it is, to have the best and appropriate systems around us, so that we can be the best possible. We’ll discuss aspects of ourselves that we can all develop.

This is a show with inspiring people, including musicians, artists, athletes, medical specialists, business entrepreneurs and more…in the pursuit of excellence.

I’m Jason Agosta, a health professional and former athlete, and I'm fascinated in people’s stories, my own involves developing certain attributes over time, but also things that were not done well or were significantly missing.

Join me on The Champion Within in discovering that everybody has a story, and everybody has a message.
