JARED ASTLE

I also started out as a gymnast. I did competitive gymnastics for 12 years through high school and 2 years during college. At this time I decided to enlist in the Navy. It is quite a long story, but in short I ended up becoming a Naval Aviation Rescue Swimmer for 6 years. It was at the end of this time, that I began to participate seriously in CrossFit. I had heard about it and done some CrossFit - like workouts, but had not actually prescribed to it. I separated from the military in December of 2013, I had been seriously training for about 2 months at that point in time. In 2014 I qualified for my fist regional competition. From that time forward I jumped into CrossFit and Competitive exercise completely. I have returned to the regional floor in some capacity (team or individual) the past four years. I am also a member of the Miami Surge, one of the team in the National Pro Grid League.

I'm also excited to bring forward a program that I wholeheartedly believe in an one that is derived from Jenn's years of experience in CrossFit, but also my years of pressing the body as far as the mind can go. Mental toughness and attitude are just as important in sport as war. You may have heard perception is everything and with our program we intend to change your perception.

You will see me taking care of the technical side of BMT, head coach to our Remote athletes, and programming the more technical aspects of training.

I hope to see you guys on the leaderboards!
