Jessie Nelson

Jessie graduated from Salisbury University in 2012. When she moved home, she was tired of the same old routine at the gym – treadmill, abs, free weights (rinse, wash, repeat). Her local gym was trialing a CrossFit class. At the time, she had only heard about and never seen what it was all about, so she jumped in and has been hooked ever since.

Not only did she love the competitive aspect, but the feeling of community and encouragement is what kept her coming back for more (and continues to do so). In 2016 she decided to take her love of CrossFit to the next level and became a Level 1 instructor. Sharing her passion with others and seeing them achieve something that they’ve struggled with in the past is the most rewarding part about competing and coaching. Grounded is a part of Jessie’s life because of the atmosphere and community; it’s a second home. The health benefits are just icing on the cake!
