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.
