CFMG is happy to announce that Coach Jake Merrell will begin coaching Saturday classes, 8am and 9am, starting Nov. 24th. We are very pleased to have Coach Jake aboard as one of our newest coaches. Here is a little background info about Jake:

As a Marine, you are expected and demanded to be an elite warrior.  But after back to back deployments and heavy training cycles, physical fitness took a back seat to my job and career as a Marine Helicopter Crew Chief. After returning from my second deployment, I topped the scales at 210lbs.  This was my wake up call.   My then soon-to-be wife has always been an avid runner and slowly started to reshape our fitness.  She introduced me to a “boot camp” style gym that we both loved, and we began to see results.  This worked for a while, but I hit a plateau and was stuck in a rut.  Amy found CrossFit while I was gone across country for 6 months of training and convinced me to try it out when I returned.  I was skeptical at first to say the least.  Long story short, I fell in love with CrossFit and dove in head first ever since!

CrossFit has changed my life in more ways than just the physical transformation.  The community and friendship forged through CF has impacted my life and made me a better person.  I was so blessed to make the 2012 Regionals as a Team Member for CrossFit Mission Gorge.  That experience stoked the fire and propelled me to start coaching.  I had completed my CrossFit Level 1 certificate nearly a year prior and wanted to use it spread my passion for CrossFit.  Through coaching, my goal is to spread the Sport of Fitness and help others to better their lives physically and mentally.

Education and Background:

  • Staff Sergeant, United States Marine Corps
  • Weapons and Tactics Crew Chief Instructor
  • Staff Noncommissioned Officer Career Course Class 1-12 honor graduate
  • 2012 CrossFit Games So. Cal. Regional Team Competitor
