Jon is a co-founder of CrossFit 813 and a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer. He enjoys coaching people to live a healthier and stronger life. His passion for athletics has led him to coach in youth junior football leagues. He has been a CrossFit addict since January 2009. “My first WOD was done in the back corner of my ‘globo gym’ and I was completely crushed. I haven’t been able to get enough ever since.” Since his introduction to CrossFit, Jon has discovered a love for weightlifting that inspired him to create a barbell class that meets multiple times per week since CF813 opened their doors in 2011. He has also coached athletes through multiple regional and national weightlifting competitions and co-coaches Keep Pulling weightlifting workshops.
Jon is a Tampa native and graduate of the University of Florida’s Rinker School of Building Construction. He is a high school letterman in football wrestling track and weightlifting.
