Jim, originally from upstate NY, got his start with functional fitness in Syracuse back in 2014. He felt that his physical limitations were hindering him from being able to perform the activities he loved, to his full potential. Knowing that he needed and wanted more, he saw an ad for CrossFit Dewitt in a local paper and decided to give it a try.
Aside from the plethora of physical benefits that come with CrossFit, Jim couldn’t have foreseen the way it would change his life mentally. It increased his self-motivation and drive exponentially, taught him discipline beyond what he thought he was capable of, and gave him the structure in his life that he didn’t know he needed.
He moved to Colorado in 2017 to live in a skier’s paradise. He took 2 years off from CrossFit due to knee surgeries at the end of two consecutive ski seasons. Feeling healthy and ready to get back at it, he joined CrossFit Breckenridge in December of 2019 and came back stronger than ever.
Whether it’s skiing bell to bell, getting pitted in the backcountry, crushing peaks, or hitting the trails hard AF, functional fitness and CrossFit Breckenridge have gotten him to the level he’s at today.
