Jake’s 20+ years of training experience began in High School when he was looking for sparing partners for Golden Gloves. While sidelined with an injury in 2007 he found CrossFit. He spent a week trying to figure out who Fran was. He then spent the next 3 months watching and reading everything about CrossFit. The majority of the CrossFit community was online then. Jake made himself at home by becoming the “GodFather” of the FRAT. You can here more about his antics on CrossFit radio
His first workout was the Filthy Fifty. It was a nightmare and he was hooked. He started training his MMA/Kickboxing friends in a local park. Too many people showed up and the park kicked them out. So they moved to a friends garage. Too many people showed up there and a friendly neighbor called the city. So the Tribe moved to a crappy warehouse that was hidden better than Batman’s Cave. In December of 2011 we moved to the north west corner of Kyrene & Chandler tripling the amount of space we have to train.
