We are super excited to announce Jason has joined Kirkland Community Fitness as a Trainer! Jason began sports performance training and Olympic lifting at 9 years old in order to get faster and stronger for football. Though football was his primary sport, he loved working out, but was forced to quit football after an injury. In 2012, he was introduced to CrossFit and instantly found his new passion. In 2013 he began coaching as a Sports Performance Coach for athletes ranging from 9 years old to collegiate level, and as a CrossFit instructor. He is certified in USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance Coach and CrossFit L1. He received a bachelor’s degree in Fitness and Human Performance from Southeastern Louisiana University. Outside of coaching, Jason enjoys competing in local competitions, hunting, fishing, and spending time with his fiancé Ashely and dog Oakley.
