owner and head coach, CF-L1
Jared grew up in Anchor and Bolingbrook, Illinois, a part time city boy, part time country boy. He began lifting weights at the age of 14 and instantly fell in love with exercising. He played middle linebacker and threw in track at Elmhurst College, graduating with his BS in Kinesiology and a minor in Health in 2006. He currently teaches health and weights and coaches track at Carson High School.
Upon moving to Nevada in 2012, Jared found himself getting bored at the local globo gym without his former bench press and bicep curl buddies. A fellow teacher convinced him to try CrossFit and he immediately found a connection with the people at RAD. Now, as owner of CrossFit RAD, Jared hopes to give others a great place to work out in an atmosphere that welcomes everyone.
