My wife and I have two girls, Avery and Lauren, whom you’ll see a lot of here at HSC. Wanting my daughters to be surrounded by positive influences was a major factor in my decision to pursue CF HSC.
Backing up a bit, I haven’t always valued a healthy lifestyle. I was active in wrestling through high school and then pretty much ate and drank whatever I wanted for the next 12 years or so. By my mid 20’s, I had gained 75lbs. I was lazy, I made excuses, and I couldn’t stick to an exercise routine for more than a few days. I finally realized that I could no longer live this way. I spent some time in various gyms, biked and ran, but when I found CrossFit, everything changed. Fitness was fun again. It kept me coming back. I started to prioritize my fitness and took accountability in my nutrition. The community of people was amazing and we have some of the best people you’ll ever meet here at HSC. Now in my 30’s I’m fitter than most 20 year olds. We refer to that era of my life as “Old Jeff”, and I can tell ya, he ain’t coming back!
I have a job I love in the medical device industry that has taken me to around 35 CrossFit gyms across the country. You could say HSC has parts of what I love best of many of those places.
Why I coach
I do this because I love to help others improve their quality of life. To see people grow fitter, stronger, and confident is pretty friggen cool to me.
