our story

It all started in the mid 80’s. That’s when my mother started putting me into all kinds of recreational league intramural sports. Thus the seed was planted in my head to constantly push myself physically and mentally. I must have tried out every sport offered. Baseball, basketball, swim team, lacrosse, football, wrestling and, of course, soccer, just to name a few. Committing to 2-3 practices per week plus a game on Saturdays really laid the foundation to finding a regular routine to exert my physical energy. Once in high school, I played all the sports and had 5 grueling 2-3 hours long practices a week. I was hooked and I wanted to see how to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.


Fast forward and the last 15 years I have made my career working for a company that financed businesses. I would get really creative to help small to mid sized businesses, and entrepreneurs, that were generally less than desirable for traditional bank loans. It was a ton of fun! Seriously… I would take people to breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner and happy hours. I met a lot of folks and was able to help many businesses grow to the next level. Helping them was very rewarding.

I started CrossFit over 8 years ago when my wife, Jennifer, took me to my first CrossFit class. I was hooked and couldn’t get enough. I wanted to know how to do all the movements and right so that I could improve my times and get stronger. I went to many seminars and took a bunch of private training to hone in my skills. After countless hours of practice and a lot of patience, everything started to come together.

I got into coaching by accident and I really saw it as an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. What better way to help me get better with my own skills than to teach others how to do it right AND I could satisfy my desire to help people in an area that I’m passionate. I took all the best advice, tips, and strategies that worked for me and regurgitated it in a way that everyone could understand and have some fun while learning. After-all, it wasn’t long before that, that I was in their shoes.

The timing to open Sacris CrossFit couldn’t have worked out better! I was transitioning out of my financing job and had been contemplating going into business for myself for a while. By coincidence, Jennifer decided to leave her job at the same time. Rather than hopping back into Corporate America, we both took a leap together into the deep end of entrepreneurialism. We wanted to help people, follow our own path, and have fun! Not in a million years could I have imagined making a scarier yet extremely rewarding decision, and I get to do with somebody that I love and trust. When you boil it all down, I love what I’m doing because I love the people we serve and the awesome impact Sacris CrossFit is making for people when they are both inside and outside of these gym walls. We would love to join you on your fitness journey!

Jason

COACH

Hi, my name is Jason White. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio but just recently moved here from Texas. I am married to an active duty Army veterinarian named Hailey. We have been married for 5 years this October. We have a two year old son named Adam. He was named after a soldier from my detachment that was killed during my second of three deployments to Iraq. I served almost 10 years in the Army reserves. I was wounded by an IED on my second tour and that is when I started studying to become a personal trainer. I started training people at LifeTime Fitness and did that for 3 years. I was certified by the NASM as a CPT and PES. I have been into athletics all of my life. I was a three sport athlete in high school, played Div II football in college and played club rugby when I went back to school. I joined my first CrossFit gym and, after a friend opened hers, I went with her to start coaching CrossFit. While I was there I met my wife during a CrossFit competition. After we were married we moved around a bit with the Army, so I was able to coach different people all over. I've worked with people of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. I am a true believer in strength training and that is my absolute passion. Seeing people do things they never thought possible is so motivating and energizing. Here is a review from one of my personal training clients: "He genuinely cares about people and their well being. He knows his stuff; he studies it, he breathes it, he lives it! He explained every workout, what muscle it worked, why I was doing it, demonstrated it, and adjusted the weights according to how I felt and how my form looked. But he's so much more than just a trainer and treats you as so much more than just a client. He creates a welcoming environment that's not weird or awkward, almost to the point of feeling like you're working out with a friend. I've had other trainers in the past and I would dread going in. They didn't really talk and I felt like the workouts weren't challenging. They didn't try to get to know me and it just didn't feel personal. But with Jason, he develops relationships and checks in on you. He would text me every week, throughout the week, asking how I was feeling, how work was going, and if, just overall, I was ok. His love for fitness and people really shows through his work. He's not just my trainer, he's my dear friend." - Alicia Howard, Ph.D I have battled with several traumatic injuries that have caused me to restart my fitness journey and modify my training so I know the struggles of remembering what you used to be able to do. I've dealt with body dysmorphia, alcohol abuse, and PTSD related issues. I honestly believe my love for fitness and helping other people is what helped keep me focused on improving my life. Life has now brought me to Colorado where I look forward to serving the Sacris CrossFit community.
