Athlete Profile: Jason B.

By Sean | In Athlete Profiles | on December 17, 2010

Started CrossFit: 4 years ago, and was the OG of the Spectrum CrossFit crew before joining the ranks of CF Intrepid in June
Favorite Movements/Lifts: Plopping down on his coach and watching college football after a tough Saturday workout.  Seriously though, Jason has mentioned to me on several occasions that he has enjoyed the Back Squat since the football days at Stanford University.
Favorite WODs: Says he likes all the workouts we do, even the ones he hates (notice the very diplomatic answer).
Least Favorite Movements/WODs: Anything with double unders or workouts where reps are taken away from him.
Accomplishments Jason is Proud of: Directly from Jason, “Each day I get a chance to cheer, watch, and compete with a great group of friendly and supportive CrossFitters whom I consider friends.”  Perhaps it was everyone’s energy combined with Jason’s hard work that helped knock over 3 minutes of his most recent Fran time, but I think that’s something he can be proud of as well!
Fitness Goals: Continue to Improve

Jason is one of the most friendly and likable individuals at CF Intrepid.  He can be found conversing with anyone in the gym, even during the lifts and workouts, and has helped recruit quite a few people to Intrepid.  Jason’s friendliness is only surpassed by his modesty.  Although he’s one of Intrepid’s top athletes he is quite camera shy (I had to dig through just about all our photos just to find the ones above) and actually would have preferred to remain anonymous on his birthday this year, but thought better of it as he didn’t want to tick off the programming gods.  He also is quite competitive but still some of those pre-game butterflies from time to time like he used to experience at Stanford.  Jason has become a mainstay at Intrepid and he continues to improve across the board in his lifts and his benchmark workouts.  Aside from his vigilance and unique technique on spotting others’ bench presses and his infamy for breezing through warmups for lifts and jumping to heavy loads, Jason has established himself as part of the CFI family and we’re all better for it.  Happy birthday Jason!

    Happy Birthday Jason! You are super modest! I can’t believe pullups aren’t on your favorites list because they appear so effortless for you. And I would like to add Trevor to your favorite WOD.. because I suffered through it with you and you got us through the dredded 300 pushups. Really happy to have you as a party of our family!

    Look Becky, deadlifts :)

    Have a great birthday and birthday weekend Jason! My next purchase will be an invisibility cloak so I can take more pictures of you 😉

    I can’t believe I slept through my alarm AGAIN!!! (Sorry Sean)

    Happy Birthday Jason!! I love working out with you. You always push me to do more than I think I can and support me when I’m struggling to get a lift. It truly is a pleasure chatting with you during our lifts…. even if it slows us down and annoys Ruth :) ….. lifting with you and getting to know you.

    BTW…. Modesty? Who is this modest Jason? The Jason I work out with says “Scott, let’s throw a few more plates on!” “Ruth said 200#, let’s make it 225#!” :) Just kidding. You are very modest and I think you often drop the weight you are lifting so we can do the same weight or near the same weight.

    Psyched to have you at CFI. Happy Birthday Bro!!

    happy birthday mr. “i just ran my warm-up lap”!!! i love that you hate being cheered on through double-unders, and i love using that little bit of insider info against you. :) hope your day / weekend is awesome!

    oh, and sean? does he plop down on his *coach* to watch football? or is it his couch? ’cause that first one sounds uncomfortable and sort of mean… 😉

    Happy Birthday Jason!!! I hope you have a great one! Thanks for getting Nick and I into CrossFit. I have to say though, I don’t miss Spectrum WODs at all.

    Happy Birthday Jason, I def relate to your dislike of fanfare, but in this case its most deserved. You come in and just crush WODS and lifts. Best of all you are a great motivator, friend and key member of our CFI family. It wouldnt be the same without you. Have a great birthday, and dont worry… college football starts back up this weekend.

    Happy Birthday to the guy who taught me CrossFit!

    Thanks for all the encouragement and good nature over the past months, has been a real pleasure knowing and working out with you!

    Happy birthday! I had lots of fun hitting you with balls during Crossfit dodgeball.

    My vote for best comment of the day.

    Happy Birthday Jason! You need to get off your coach and try out the morning class. Oh the fond memories of Eva at Spectrum – although, as you say “letting the treadmill warm-up is a nice rest period.”

    Anonymous, Schmanonymous. I can’t say enough about Intrepid, the trainers, atmosphere, camaraderie, and, most importantly, the people. Thank you! I awakened at 5AM and actually checked out the Intrepid site. I was afraid it would be like a HS Yearbook signing, but I hit refresh many times (who is counting refreshes or birthdays at this point) to read the kind words and wishes from each of you. Thank you for making my birthday special!

      Happy birthday Jason!

      I hope at the party your superlative was “most likely to sandbag by increasing weight as an excuse to go slower during WODs” :)

        Happy Birthday Jason! I still remember the first day you came in and kicked my a$$ on that rowing WOD. Thanks for being the second impetus to our broadening our pull up bar equipment and not be so shortie-biased in our gym!

        It’s been a joy watching you slash minute upon minute off your Fran time!
