Jeannie Young

Jeannie grew up in Utah as the eighth of nine children with a very active and health conscious mother, so nutrition and physical fitness has always been a large part of her life. In her childhood she dabbled in gymnastics and dance but by high school her attention turned to swimming and track & field. When she entered college she decided to continue her passion for fitness by majoring in it. Jeannie has a BS degree in Fitness and Wellness Management from Brigham Young University. She has experience in personal training as well as corporate wellness. She managed the employee fitness center at the Millstone Power Plant, a job she loved because of the close community and personal interactions with the members. When children came into the picture she chose to be a stay at home mom, but kept fitness instruction in the picture by completing certifications in Aerboics, Kickboxing and Pilates.

Jeannie was introduced to CrossFit in early 2011 and was instantly hooked! She loved the challenge that CrossFit gave her and how empowering the Olympic lifts felt. After training at a few local boxes for four years Jeannie decided to take the next step and complete the Level 1 course to become a coach. She loves helping others succeed in CrossFit and reach new levels of fitness and strength.

In addition to CrossFit Jeannie volunteers in the HK school district and is actively involved in church service. She lives in Killingworth with her husband Matt and their four children and enjoys running, hiking, reading and spending time with her family.
