Founder and Coach Jan Kozak has been a CrossFitter since 2012 and specializes in Olympic lifts and mobility. He’s passionate about community wellness, access to healthy, wholesome food for all, and fitness. "Developing community and helping everyone reach their goals is the best part of coaching," he says. "Increased fitness is a ticket to overall wellness, as well a confidence that extends well beyond the gym."
As an athlete, Jan used to do lots of cycling and running, and has completed an Olympic distance triathlon. "I love to lift in the Olympic style, as well as suffer in longer metcons," he says. "I’ve been blessed with excellent mobility, and I love helping folks get more mobile and thus feeling better in and out of the gym." Coaching was a natural extension. "With an intense passion for it, and the chutzpah to try it, I found myself developing a professional, customer-service driven, accessible CrossFit business alongside Jack Green, and the rest is history."
When he’s not in the gym, Jan enjoys spending time with his "supportive and sexy wife Melissa, and a hilarious and sweet son named Alfons (or Alfie). I was born in the Czech Republic, and immigrated to the United States in 1986. My name is pronounced ‘Yahn.’"
