Jara’s journey with Crossfit started in 2009 when her husband, Sean, an active duty Air Force officer, began crossfitting in Afghanistan.  Upon his return and certification, he began coaching Jara at home.  Jara had just had their third child, and while a lifelong athlete, her fitness had become secondary to raising her kids.  CrossFit was an immediate match for Jara, it brought her back memories of competitive high school and college days as a lacrosse and hockey player.

How had CrossFit impacted your life?

Jara said, “While discussing my love for coaching with a friend who is an interventional cardiologist, he said to me, you will help save more lives than I ever could.  What an amazing statement– I could not feel better about any other job!”
