Hello, I am Jessica, Owner and Head Coach of CrossFit Peekskill. I started my CrossFit journey in 2010 at the age of 36. I have always been active and never thought I would enjoy CrossFit, I was completely wrong, CrossFit changed my life. Since joining CrossFit, I became a coach in 2012, and since then have always been coach, finally deciding in 2017 to follow my passion and become a fulltime Coach.
When I found CrossFit as an athlete, I found a missing part of me that I have missed, a reason to push myself, a sense of competitiveness, and a community. Over the last 10 years, my reason for training has changed, many times, I did CrossFit to stay in shape, to keep sane, to be moderately competitive, and to compete in Worldwide competitions, and also found sometimes its ok not to have a purpose. In 2019 I competed at Wodapalooza in Miami, and finished 2nd, and went on to finish 14th in the World in my Age Group in CrossFit Games Qualifier that year and 10th in the World in 2020, and now I need to figure out what is next. For now I am excited with my new adventure as Owner of CrossFit Peekskill, which I had the opportunity to take over last year.
As a Coach, CrossFit is a whole new world. I love seeing people realize what they can do, and the victories they make along the way. As the saying goes "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." I LOVE what I do.
Looking forward to meeting you!
