CrossFit not only satisfies my competitive nature but engages me to focus on all aspects of my health. Working out with the awesome community that CrossFit creates is not only inspiring but helps you push to new limits you thought were not possible. Even when the days are challenging I still love what I am doing.
I enjoy being apart of helping others realize what they are capable of. I love sharing my knowledge to help athletes reach their personal goals. Sharing my passion to make others happy, healthier and stronger is pretty awesome!
Since i was a child, i have been very active and have participated in several different group sports. I played soccer in my youth where i realized I enjoyed the high intensity and fast pace environment. Moved on to compete in track and field throughout school, 400 M was my race! I found a competitive jump rope team, where i traveled across the country mastering tricks, double unders and speed rope. My ultimate love is horse back riding, competing and participating in clubs as a child and now more recreational as an adult. After I took some time off out of the saddle and couldn’t stand the treadmill any longer, I found interest in CrossFit. I took my first class in August of 2010 and fell in love. I went on to get my CrossFit Level 1 and studied in exercise science/ personal training. I have been a coach at CrossFit Bothell since 2014.
I love that CrossFit is beautifully structured to create an environment that can help anyone to reach their fitness goals and beyond. From the movements and programming framework to the community-building aspects and even the music, it’s an all-around positive experience that naturally makes you want to push yourself to achieve more day after day.
I love helping people move better; I love helping people identify their goals and then reach those goals; I love creating challenging, effective, balanced workouts that people truly enjoy; and most of all I love showing people that they can accomplish things that could never have even envisioned, which eventually happens to everyone who sticks with it for more than a few months.
After college I had a steady routine of running and lifting and I was in decent shape, but my fitness gains were stagnant and I found myself oft-injured from repetitive stress. I discovered CrossFit in 2011 and not only did I improve my fitness dramatically, but I found that my nagging injuries began to dissipate as the well-rounded programming exposed and eliminated many of my musculature weaknesses and imbalances. By 2014 I had so much personal satisfaction from CrossFit that I decided I wanted to gain a deeper understanding of functional movement and programming philosophies and share that knowledge to benefit others, so I began my pursuit of coaching accreditations. I currently hold certifications as a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and a CrossFit Football/Power Athlete Trainer.

Jeff and Jackie poured their heart and soul into building CrossFit Bothell. This community would not exist without them. Unfortunately it was time for them to ride off into the sunset in the Big Sky Country.
