Jacob started CrossFit in 2012 and knew that he found something different compared to his conventional bodybuilding training. After being humbled by the infamous body weight workout "CINDY" he dove into CrossFit. In 2014 he got his level 1 CrossFit Trainer Certification as well as his Strongman Certification in 2015. Jacob loves CrossFit and enjoys working with people to become healthier, more fit and getting them stronger.

I am 48 and a mom of two teens. I love to teach fitness and health to everyone. I’m in the best shape of my life in my 40’s which I want to promote and to set an example for my community. I enjoy competing as an Elite level athlete in Obstacle Course Racing as well as running. I also love competing in CrossFit competitions with my amazing CrossFit Gilroy crew. I am proud and honored to be a part of the CrossFit Gilroy training team!!
Like a lot of skinny kids growing up I was always exercising and lifting weights in order to get bigger and more muscular. It never worked. I wasn't going to make my body into something it wasn't. When I started CrossFit back in 2014 I finally bought into the notion that the primary focus of fitness should not be about how I look, but about what I could achieve. I have never had as much fun working out as I have at CrossFit Gilroy. I look forward to it every time and enjoy that there are always new challenges waiting for me. Work hard and have fun and your best body will follow.
As a coach my primary focus is always on form and scaling. I would rather see somebody learning a movement safely and properly than let somebody try a lift or a skill they are not ready for and get frustrated or injured. Fitness and health is a life-long journey and as coaches at CrossFit Gilroy we are always looking to adapt the programming for each athlete as their strength, fitness level and experience grows.
