It’s unclear whether the sheer boredom of Ohio country life or the influence of a sports-lovin’ family triggered Coach Jess’s athletic endeavors. Jess began playing softball as soon as she was old enough to enroll, then quickly added basketball and soccer to keep her busy year-round. After moving to NY for college, Jess took a hiatus from sports… unless you call flip-cup a sport. Unsure of how to return to physical activity, Jess gave everything from running to Bikram yoga to kickboxing a try. Luckily, her future husband got her to join a gym, lift weights ,and eventually led her to CrossFit. CrossFit helped her complete her first Marathon in 4:19, has made her a more powerful hitter in her softball league, and CFSBK has given her a family outside of Ohio.
Jess loves being a strong female role model in the gym and really enjoys pushing female athletes in the same direction. She enjoys working with newer athletes because she vividly remembers falling over the first time she put a barbell overhead. Jess also has a passion for working with endurance athletes in hopes of moving them away from traditional long-slow distance training.
Jess holds CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Gymnastics, and CrossFit Endurance certifications.
