Jamie Adams

Jamie is 28 years old and has been doing CrossFit for 5 years. He built his fitness and athletic foundation through high school sports. In college, however, finishing his Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Kinesiology is when he was introduced to CrossFit. Love at first sight.

“CrossFit just made sense to me.” Jamie explains. “It taches movements that you can take and apply to real life settings. These functional movements are for any age group and fitness level.”

Once he began to notice the progressions and results people were getting, he knew he had to be apart of teaching CrossFit. With a passion in helping others, he passed his L1 certification and began coaching CrossFit classes along with personal training. Jamie has recently obtained his CrossFit L2 certification. Jamie says, “My passion has been to improve people’s energy levels, mood, body composition, and overall quality of life through CrossFit.”

Jack O’Connor

Jack has always had a sports and fitness background, in and out of traditional gyms. In December 2012, Jack was introduced to CrossFit by a group of guys he worked with and was hooked. “Strength, Power, and Functional Movements transfer perfectly with the real world responsibilities at the firehouse.” Jack explains.

He joined his first CrossFit affiliate at the beginning of 2013. After getting his CrossFit L1 Certification, Jack has been “arms wide open” in sharing his knowledge and experience with every athlete that walks through the door.

Jack says, “As a 16-year firefighter, our mission statement has always been 3 simple words, “We Help People”—a passion I uphold inside the gym. Now, my passion in life is to share my enthusiasm for a healthy and fulfilling life with as  many people as possible. In addition to work and training, my biggest inspiration is spending with my wife, Christina and daughter, Brooklyn.

“You don’t have to be great to start, you have to start to be great.”
