Jonathan has over a decade of CF experience as a competitor, member, coach, programmer, and manager. Because of this, he believes in the old quote “we all differ by degree not kind”; meaning we all come into CrossFit at different times of our lives; a former athlete who just got done with training, a mom wanting to get their energy back, to the elders who want to be able to pick their self-off of the floor if they fall. Regardless we all need to learn how to move and use our own bodies in a natural way; and when CrossFit is taught professionally and well, we can allow people from all walks of life begin (or start again) a journey into using the most complex and wonderful tool you will be ever given. Your body.
