Growing up in Southington, Connecticut, John was immersed in sports from a young age. Throughout high school he found his stride in the comaradie of team sports, excelling in both football and baseball. However, upon his arrival in Philadelphia for a four year stint at St. Joes, his cleats gathered dust and weight rooms remained foreign territory until frantic pre-spring break efforts. It wasn’t until a year post-college that he recommitted to his physical well-being. Sampling various group fitness programs he finally discovered his niche in Crossfit.

Jeff grew up in Downingtown and has always had a passion for sports. Whether it was intramural baseball, soccer or basketball, Jeff played it. It wasn’t until the age of 12, where he found his true passion…ice hockey. After years of relentless travel, early morning practices and games every weekend, Jeff decided to hang up his skates and enjoy the college life at West Chester University. In 2010, Jeff was introduced to CrossFit by a good friend. He quickly found a passion for the sport. He loves progressing in any movement thrown at him and enjoys the competitive atmosphere amongst the community.
