JJ first joined Warrior Pride in September of 2014, and immediately fell in love with CrossFit.  Prior to joining, he was exercising regularly at a local gym, but his workouts quickly became mundane.

Not only did CrossFit offer fun and varied workouts, but it also provided a unique sense of community.  Everyone knows and supports one another.  When the gym became available for purchase, he quickly jumped at the opportunity to buy it with the Fischer’s.

JJ is married to Melissa, with whom they have three children; Aydan, Logan, and Lakyn, and the best furbaby – Minnie, a black pug.
