COACH JAMIE

Jamie Lesk CF-L1 USAW

Jamie Lesk grew up in South Haven, MI and despite playing basketball and throwing shot-put and discus through high school, it wasn’t until she discovered obstacle course racing in 2014 that she found her niche. CrossFit-style workouts, bodybuilding, and short runs eventually turned into ultra running and endurance race training. Jamie started CrossFit in 2016 and hasn’t looked back since. She's recently added Olympic weightlifting to her plate and qualifying for her first national meet in 2019. Jamie earned her CrossFit Level 1 and USAW Level 1 Certificates in 2018 with the intention of bettering herself as an athlete, but discovered her love for sharing her knowledge via working with family and friends.
