If you're wondering if you can do CrossFit -- YOU CAN! Not convinced? Jess wants to chat with you.
Jess began her journey at 618 CrossFit as a 6-Week Challenge Member who had never tried CrossFit before in her life. Those 6 weeks ended a long time ago.
Jess understands the challenge and struggles that arise as athletes make changes to their nutrition and fitness. As someone who has been there, Jess can confidently encourage anyone that they got this.
Outside of her life at the gym, she is working towards her Ph.D. in Behavior Analysis and Therapy at Southern Illinois University. She is a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst with over five years experience working with children with autism.
In her spare time, Jess enjoying hiking, spending time at the lake, or sitting on the couch with a good book (accompanied by her two loving dogs and a cat, of course).
From her perspective, moving a heavy barbell, listening to loud music and sweating alongside a group of people she calls family is her form of meditation.
