Crossfit Level 1
Jon North Attitude Nation
Growing up, I was a military brat. I was born in Florida (Go University of Miami), moved to Germany where I learned German as my first language, then went to West Point, NY and then when my father retired from the Army we came to Colorado. I have lived in Colorado since I was 12 years old and honestly can’t see myself leaving this beautiful state. I graduated Colorado State University with a BS in Nutrition & Food Sciene. I decided to explore my options in a non-profit tissue bank: AlloSource where I currently work as a processing technician making bone, skin and tendon allografts for patients.
I have always enjoyed working out and being healthy, but in August 2012 I was bored with my normal routine and I wanted to see what all the hype was with Crossfit. I went to my first class at Crossfit Lodo because it was the closest one to my apartment and I bought a groupon deal for cheap. I was sore every day, but found a spark in working out again that I haven’t felt in a while. In October 2012 I bought my first house and moved to Englewood. While driving down Santa Fe one day I saw the sign for Crossfit South Denver and thought I would give it a try. Fell in love with the facility, coaches and atmosphere. Signed up the next day.
I have been doing Crossfit now for over two years, and have been a Level 1 Trainer for one year as of October 2014. I love training myself but have found a true passion in teaching others and improving their well being. I want everyone I teach to know that I am 100% there for them and to help them in anyway possible. I strive to push people to exceed their expectations of themselves.
