CrossFit Squamish owners Jesse and Heather are passionate about physical training and the human body, and absolutely love teaching. Jesse brought to CrossFit Squamish 13 years of experience working in Wildland Fire including work as a helicopter operations tech and facilitator of new recruit fitness. Heather had been practicing Registered Massage therapy (3000 hours of training) for 3 years prior to opening the gym in 2009, and provides an anatomical and biomechanical knowledge base that enhances the safety and technical merit of the programming. Jesse and Heather continue to regularly seek knowledge about programming, training and rehabilitation through literature, certification courses, seminars and direct learning from experts in the fields of health and fitness. They utilize these resources to their full potential because they believe that constant learning and a varied skill set are imperative for the highest quality of training. They have built a coaching team who demonstrates characteristics in line with their vision for CrossFit Squamish. Each coach has a strong passion for teaching, for being involved in the CrossFit community through events and competitions, and for continuing to develop themselves as coaches and athletes.
