I was born and raised here in Mesa and began with sports as soon as I was old enough to be put into a league. Baseball is where I landed and was fortunate enough to play from 5 years old through college. CrossFit was a great transition from that environment and I haven’t looked back since. It’s been over 6 years now and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else to stay healthy and capable to carry out any task thrown my way.

Jessica started her fitness journey as a runner and became a very good one at that. After years of doing endurance sports such as marathons, she decided she wanted to get strong and feel more comfortable doing all the things life brought her way. She quickly became a force to be reckoned with and found that many people came to her asking for advice. She decided to become a certified CrossFit coach and has never looked back. Jessica never hesitates to tell you what you’re doing right and what you’re doing wrong. She will motivate you and always is looking to help. She is married to CJ Carling, who is no slouch in the gym, making a very fit couple. They have 3 boys and they all love to use their bodies to enjoy life.
Justin is a Level 1 CrossFit coach. He has always been very active in sports; swimming, football, wrestling, baseball, anything that needed a competitor/player. Justin started CrossFitting in 2007, pulling a Workout of the Day (WOD) off the internet and dragging anyone he could out into the backyard or to the nearest retention basin to complete a WOD. Justin has always felt compelled to be prepared for any situation so the functional movements of CrossFit fell right inline with his “prepper” personality. He loves that CrossFit can be scaled for any fitness level and that it helps strengthen the entire body with WODs that are varied everyday. He loves working with people and helping them meet their goals.
