Bio

Jill has been an athlete all her life, an that led her to earn her Bachelors of Science in Recreation Management with a focus in Fitness Management. During college, Jill quickly became a “gym rat”, and spent most of her time at the Recreation center either working out, teaching classes, training clients, or refereeing games.

After college, Jill decided to leave Pennsylvania and head to the Sunshine City! With many years of experience with bootcamps under her belt, Jill decided she wanted to try CrossFit. Her goal: Learn proper barbell technique so she could incorporate them into her own workout, and better help her own clients. Admittedly, Jill thought she’d only stick with it for a few months– but that plan quickly evaporated. She grew to love the sport of CrossFit, and calls it her “therapy of choice” after the losing her mother in 2016. She found CrossFit9 a place to help heal her pain, while also giving her a place to help others along their own fitness journeys.
