John M. Bryant, Founder and Head Coach

John is a lifelong endurance athlete who tried CrossFit in early 2010, and was hooked immediately. Having never recovered from the endurance bug, however, he has used CrossFit to complete the Twin Cities Marathon (twice) and expand his bicycle racing to include the muddy joys of cyclocross.

He is a licensed attorney and served for six years in the United States Marine Corps.  He is excited to help you discover and achieve your health and fitness goals.

Jasmine Gerritsen, Coach/Trainer

Jasmine is a bit of a sports fiend and doesn’t ever recall a time in her life when she wasn’t active. Jasmine played basketball for 14 years, four of which she played in high school while also doing track and field.  She was exposed to CrossFit training by a hip athletic trainer in high school, who then graciously adopted Jasmine as a mentee. Thereafter, Jasmine used CrossFit training to help her achieve a Black Belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate (Kickboxing), and has since taught that for about 6 years. Although Jasmine prefers explosive sports and movements, she has had her fair share of endurance training, as she has ran multiple half marathons and even ran cross country for her college. Jasmine believes CrossFit gave her a well-balanced athletic skill set that enabled her to successfully pursue other athletic interests. 

Jasmine just received her secondary teaching license in English and English as a Second Language (ESL), but has since decided that the teacher-in-school-life just isn’t for her. Now she has set her sights on becoming a full-time fitness instructor and wants to learn as much as possible about training and exercising.
