Age is just a number, right? It took me a while to believe that, but honestly now I do. If I tell my clients that it’s never too late to change their lives, then I should not fret that Coach is 12 years younger than me. And I don’t. I’m actually high fiving myself at this very moment at being able to land such a gorgeous man. Inside and out.

Coach is so freaking legit. He walks his talk by prioritizing nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. He competed in the 2010 CrossFit Games affiliate cup with a group of amazing athletes. He is leading the insane growth of this gym with a level head and a positive energy. He is saving lives and making athletes stronger-faster-fitter, one WOD at a time.

The day I met Jesse was the 4th best day of my life. He walked into CrossFit Tribe and I said to Greengas, “New guy is hot.” Five months later we kissed and have been kissing ever since. To this very moment, butterflies are still in full effect.

One year ago on this very day, the CrossFit World Games began. I was honored to walk beside my partner as he took the track at the Home Depot stadium with his teammates. Today I’m even prouder, as he leads our new team through each WOD, leaving us all better athletes with his “tough love” approach. 

Happy Birthday Jesse Crespo. Thank you for dedicating your life to this community, taking care of my children and for holding my heart in your heart.
