Champlain Valley CrossFit
Jade is the head trainer and co-owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit. Like most CrossFitters, Jade developed an instant addiction to CrossFit when he discovered it in the summer of 2009.
In his pre-CrossFit days, Jade followed the traditional globa gym, body builder routine, but after going through "Fran" as his first workout, he knew he would never re-visit the dreaded curls and leg extensions. Shortly after finding CrossFit, Jade realized that there was no affiliate in Vermont and therefore took it upon himself to open Vermont's first CrossFit affiliate. CVCF is the second affiliate in Vermont, and the first in Chittenden County.
Jade dedicates most of his life to the entire lifestyle of CrossFit— reading, watching, training, learning— so that he can ever improve himself as a coach, educator and athlete. Jade believes that the CrossFit lifestyle is the key to becoming a healthy, happy, fit individual, and wants to share it with all who are interested.
Jade is a native Vermonter, he attended High School in South Burlington, and received his B.S in Business, Summa Cum Laude, from Champlain College.
