Jake In His Own Words

Every coach is “the” coach for someone or something. What’s your jam?

I enjoy all aspects of coaching, especially helping new members understand the movements and feel welcome. I also love helping with recovery and mobility.

Tell us about your fitness journey!

I started CrossFit five years ago. I was overweight from a few too many beers. I’ve since lost 45 lbs, and I feel great! I regularly compete in the Tactical Games and the Patriot Games. Learning about nutrition and recovery changed my path drastically.

What’s on your go-to class playlists?

I like all types! Every class is a new adventure in music.

Let’s play local tour guide! If someone has 24 hours in St. Pete, where are you sending them?

The Dali Museum, Chophouse 1200, and my shop– Treasure Island Tattoo (nothing like a tattoo to commemorate your vacation)!

At a party, where can you be found?

On the dance floor!

What topics do you geek out on?

I love SUP, fishing, and I am an avid Jeeper!
