Why do you coach?

Jono started Crossfit at the end of 2011 in his home town at Crossfit Plymouth in the UK. He developed as a coach and athlete for 15 months before taking a career opportunity to coach in Kuwait at the country’s first affiliate, Crossfit Circuit Plus. Jono spent 18 months in the Middle East coaching and educating the community about health and fitness. While in Kuwait, he made Regionals as an individual athlete. Gaining athletic recognition allowed him the opportunity to acquire his visa to come to the US to compete on the 2015 CFNE Team that went to the CrossFit Games. Jono has been in the US since 2014, coaching at Crossfit Synergistics. Jono is excited to be part of the Crossfit One Nation community. He especially looks forward to helping athletes achieve their goals and showing them that they are physically and mentally capable beyond what they expect of themselves.
