My name is Jean Hill and I’m a coach at Origin Fitness. I started my journey as a member in 2014 and have seen the gym grow since its opening. In February 2017 I got my Level 1 certificate for CrossFit and started interning at Origin Fitness in March. Now I’m a legitimate member of the Origin Fitness coaching team and couldn’t be happier! I have learned so much from all the coaches as well as the members.
My biggest contribution as a coach is my perspective as a woman, a more “seasoned” athlete and a former member. I know what helped me when I was new to CrossFit and I hope I can pass that experience on to new athletes as well as the veterans.
I have been motivated and inspired by all the coaches at Origin Fitness since I first started coming to the gym. I love the group atmosphere and camaraderie and I truly believe in the foundations of fitness fostered at this gym. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
I love a partner workout! Having someone push you to do your best while you do that in return is so rewarding. Especially with any movement where something heavy is lifted overhead! The sound of dropping barbells is pretty cool!
I wouldn’t say that I don’t like Burpees, but I can honestly say they’re not something I’d just do on my own. I mean, who would just decide to do burpees for no good reason?
Outside of Origin Fitness I work full time as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I get to take care of sick and premature infants, attend high risk deliveries and transport critical newborns from smaller outlying hospitals for advanced care. I’m also a wife and mother of 2 girls. I hope to be a good role model for leading an active and fit life (even if my kids think I’m like 100 years old).
You don’t have to already be in shape to start CrossFit or exercise! The coaches at Origin Fitness will prove to you that functional movement is valuable at any level of fitness and any age.
A teacher asked her students to use the word "beans" in a sentence. "My father grows beans," said one girl. "My mother cooks beans," said a boy. A third student spoke up, "We are all human beans."
