Level 3 Coach, Personal Trainer, USAW
Although Jose (family and friends call him Jay) started following the CrossFit methodology in 2011, he was first introduced to it in 2008 where his first workout was Murph… He wanted a change from the same old “bodybuilding” routine and wanted to achieve overall optimal fitness. CrossFit was certainly the way to do it. Towards the end of his Marine Corps enlistment in 2013, he obtained his L1 Cert and began coaching in 2015 at CrossFit Lake Mary in Lake Mary, FL. During that time, he continued to seek additional knowledge that would make him a better coach, attending the CrossFit Gymnastics course, Level 2 Seminar, and USA Weightlifting Level 1 Seminar. Finally, in 2017 he obtained the Certified CrossFit Trainer Certification (Level 3), and shortly after, his bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science from the University of Central Florida. Jay loves learning and continues to grow, he plans on attending physical therapy school within the next two years.
