Jeff Franzen

Born and raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, Jeff spent much of my teen years staring at a computer screen playing hours of video games. Much of his diet consisted of junk food and pop. He finally hit a point where he knew he needed a change. Jeff made a big decision to move to Denver. Once there he started training in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Lacking in endurance and strength, Jeff attempted to work out at a Globo gym but found little success. He was turned onto CrossFit by a fellow Jiu Jitsu training partner. It started with a 60-day challenge that revamped his diet and physical ability. he was completely hooked. 

After only a few months Jeff decided to pursue a path in coaching CrossFit. Wanting to test his new found ability in other athletic endeavors, Jeff has completed two races, a 10k and half marathon since the start of his CrossFit journey. Having received his Level I Certification, Jeff wants to help others achieve the success that made his fall in love with everything that is CrossFit.
