Jill Larson

COACH - PERSONAL TRAINER

 

Jill is originally from Lakeville Minnesota and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker by trade. She has over 10 years experience in counseling working with individuals who struggle with mental health diagnosis. In 2013, she saw the Crossfit Games on T.V. but felt that she could not “do what they do.” Weighing in around 300lbs, she decided to put her fears behind her and pursue her dream of living a healthier and more active lifestyle.  With an extensive athletic background, she dove right in to learn everything about nutrition, strength and conditioning and powerlifting.  Jill is passionate about working with all clients and their unique goals. “I have worked with Olympic Athletes to clients that are looking to change their lifestyle.  She also enjoys working with clients who are post-rehabilitation protocol, aging populations, Military families and our Military Wounded Warriors.
