Jamie Donaldson

Lead Coach

My love for fitness started at young age, for I was involved in every sport our school offered being from a small town. I had the opportunity to continue my love for sports while in college, which then introduced me to the strength and conditioning side of sports. Instantly I loved working with heavy weights and seeing what I was physically capable of achieving. That next summer I joined a CrossFit gym, and basically haven’t stopped loving it ever since.

In college I was a personal trainer for the university. This opportunity gained me valuable experience training with individuals. After completion of my degree an internship opportunity brought me to Chicago and I just decided to stay.

I love helping others reach their goals and seeing them achieve new things help motivate myself to continue to grow as a coach as well.
