    PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

    Jon was born in Des Moines and grew up in Ankeny, Iowa. He graduated from Ankeny high school where he was involved on both the baseball and golf teams. After high school Jon attended Iowa Central Community College on a golf scholarship where he graduated in 2007 with a degree in criminal justice. He started personal training in 2006 at Ankeny Fitness Center prior to being introduced to CrossFit. In 2007 Jon became further certified as a CrossFit coach where he trained at CrossFit Iowa. Continuing to compete himself, he obtained other qualifications with USA Weightlifting and CrossFit Competition Courses.

    In 2008 Jon was hired by the Polk County Sheriff’s office and worked three years prior to joining the Johnston Police Department. He continued to coach in his off time, compete with CrossFit competitions and train with other coworkers working on their personal physical fitness goals. Jon notes he qualified for the regional CrossFit games from 2011 through 2014 where he finished in the top 100 athletes in the world!

    Jon stopped competing in 2014 as he was taking on more responsibilities at work and got married to his wife, Kelli. Jon and Kelli celebrated the birth of their daughter in April, 2018 prior to retiring from the Johnston Police Department. We are excited that Jon joined our team earlier this year. He notes after working with our group on multiple items since 2003 that he “jumped at the chance to join this amazing team” and is excited to help us develop our personal training program.
