Jared knew there had to be a fitness discipline which could meet and exceed the varied demands of the people he interacted with and his own passions. Training better suited to mastering high-country hunting, dominating on the football field, and maximizing everyday life than the glaring gaps he experienced with traditional gym workouts. Jared attended his first CrossFit class at AMROCK's open house in Fall 2016. The workout of the day included power cleans, a run around the block, and pull-ups. He found a fitness program that fused strength, cardiovascular endurance, and body-weight movements in an endless combination. This was it! Since that day, Jared has worked to continually improve his commitment to the CrossFit discipline and earned his CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate in December 2018. In addition to his passion for functional fitness, youth sports and outdoor recreation; Jared enjoys adding to his collection of Spartan race medals with his family.
