Logan Miller has not always been an athlete. Mandatory sports practice through middle and high school was an unpleasant necessity, although he enjoyed the team camaraderie. In 1999 he embraced martial arts, which led him along a winding path through fire spinning, acrobatics, circus performance, and ultimately to CrossFit. Now Logan draws on his varied background, as well as his experience as an Olympic Lifting Coach with the USAW to create an environment where getting fit and healthy is exciting and fun, as well as effective.
Tim has always been active. He played soccer, baseball and hockey growing up, and briefly dabbled in martial arts and rowing, but he was pretty terrible at all of it. Nothing was ever quite able to capture his attention enough for him to put in the time to become great. Tim found JP CrossFit in early 2014, when he was a burnt out cake decorator desperately looking for a hobby to break up his work week. He quickly latched on to the daily challenges, the incredible JPCF community and the endless list of skills to master. Tim has a natural inclination towards gymnastic and bodyweight movements, and looks forward to getting his CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Certificate soon.
Jasmine has been an avid mover since she was little, attempting to climb fences she definitely should not have climbed and digging holes in the backyard to feel like a warrior. In high school and college, Jasmine played basketball, track and field, cross country, and practiced martial arts. CrossFit came into the picture when her basketball coach fought for the girls team to use the weight room. The second Jasmine awkwardly picked up the barbell she knew she would trade traditional sports for the sport of fitness. A former English and ELL teacher, she makes it her focus to foster a welcoming and accessible gym space for everyone. Her other interests include reading queer young adult novels, dancing to reggaeton, and drinking copious amounts of tea.
Isaac Everett has a particular passion for nutrition and body composition change, having lost eighty pounds of body fat over the course of his fitness journey, which began in 2013. He is a fierce advocate for mobility work, and will happily share the sublime experience of smashing a kettlebell into your psoas. Isaac is a part-time coach with JPCF, splitting his time between teaching classes, developing affordable co-housing, and being a priest in The Episcopal Church. His other passions include transgender justice and advocacy, extremely nerdy board games, and playing the didjeridu.
Jenna is a former collegiate athlete who found CrossFit in 2015, craving a new athletic venture and change in fitness routine. From her first class, she was hooked: the community, the challenge of learning a new sport, the complexity of skill development, and the intensity and variability in each day kept her coming back for more. Three years into her CF journey, she completed an internship at JPCF, took her L1, and joined the coaching team.
By day, Jenna teaches and practices speech and language pathology with a specialization in brain injury, making her a natural at cuing, modifying, and encouraging folks to do things that *maybe* they don’t want to do at the gym. In her own fitness, Jenna is an “engine athlete,” who loves a long and gross WOD on any given day, and has a passion for Olympic lifting and chasing high skill gymnastics. She is a committed 5amer, a puppy lover, and a sunshine enthusiast who can often be found completing accessory work with bands and/or kettlebells in spare corners of the gym.
Jenna loves helping people achieve new goals, whether it’s a first pull-up, trying keto, tackling mobility, or achieving a bodyweight lift, so reach out to her if you ever need help devising a plan.
