MEET THE COACHES

JASON BROWN, CSCS

JASON BROWN, CSCS

Founder/Head Coach

Jason is known for being very intense and passionate about both training and life. He has been an athlete for the entirety of his life and took an interest in power lifting at a very young age.

During middle school, Jason started training with a strength and conditioning coach and was able to further enhance his strength and conditioning allowing him to excel in Football and Track and Field in high school and in college.

He drank the CrossFit “kool-aid” in 2006 after college when he began training for the military. Shortly after completing training, Jason was deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. During his time in Afghanistan, Jason was able to personally train several individuals as well as provide training programs and coaching for many others. While overseas, Jason’s plans of opening a CrossFit affiliate started to come together. Two weeks after returning back to the US, that dream became a reality.

Jason has always been very passionate about coaching and training others and loves seeing people accomplish goals that they previously thought were impossible!
