Jess, coach and co-owner, is from San Antonio, Texas and has also lived in Houston, TX and St. Louis, MO. She graduated with a degree in Psychology from Texas Tech University. Her husband's job has moved them around a bit but in August of 2015 they moved to Colorado because they fell in love with Colorado. Jess is a mom of two young children and it is important to her that her kids value an active healthy lifestyle that will allow them to explore and accomplish their future goals.
Before CrossFit Jess enjoyed yoga, cycling, and kick boxing to keep fit. CrossFit was never something she saw her self doing. In February of 2015, after some major convincing by her husband she went to her first foundations class in a CrossFit box in St. Louis. She was instantly inspired seeing so many strong women and a group of people that were working out and cheering for each other like they were a team. Before CrossFit Jess always felt like she worked out to be skinny, but shortly after starting CrossFit her focus shifted to becoming stronger, faster and more capable. CrossFit changed her view of health and fitness completely. Within the first 6 months of her CrossFit journey she knew she wanted to learn as much as she could; she became a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer in order to share CrossFit with others.
When Jess is not at the box she enjoys spending time with her family, camping, hiking, skiing, and exploring Colorado.
