Jason Lydon

Jason has been involved in CrossFit since 2006 while deployed to Iraq.  Like most, the first workout destroyed him, however once he discovered scaling the WOD’s and setting aside his ego, a bit, he came to the realization there is no better program available than CrossFit to better prepare him for whatever life throws his way. Jason started training his coworkers immediately after returning from Iraq and found out what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Ever since then, there has not been a day for which he hasn’t dreamed about having a location to introduce fellow men, women, and children to the CrossFit methodology.  He retired in October 2016 after 25 years of service from the U.S. Air Force as a Pararescueman.
