J.D. Ramsay

J.D. Ramsay graduated from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia majoring in education. Following University he began his career working in non-profit social services. His background includes recreational and work therapy for mentally handicapped youths and adults and community recreational services for the handicapped. Later, as a business information officer, he realized that he held a passion for all things business. He formed his own company and joined forces with an experienced international business partner. Together they created an international trading company exporting Canadian manufactured goods to the Caribbean.

J.D. has enjoyed a love for sports and outdoor activities his whole life. As a competitive badminton player he was captain of his High School, University and regional Division One team, leading them to their only Division One team championship. J.D.’s recreational pursuits have included hiking and ocean kayaking adventures all along the western coast of British Columbia with close encounters of all kinds.

His passion for travel has led him to hike amazing 2000 year old pilgrimage routes in central Turkey, the Great Walk overlooking the wild Tasman Sea on Stewart Island, New Zealand and in deepest Tuscany.

As a businessman, J.D. found less and less time for regular exercise. His nutritional supplements, while entertaining out of town business people, consisted mainly of expensive red wines. After a decade of work and entertaining he found himself sixty pounds overweight and out of shape. His black belt conditioning in martial arts was but a faint memory.

The decision to regain a healthy balance led him on a path of personal self discovery. He wanted to know how we can maintain our fitness and our health and our jobs. After researching many diet and fitness books and methods, he began the climb back to optimum health.

The results of his personal discoveries have become his Zest Life strategies.
