COACHES

At 404, we consider coaching to be the most important part of your CrossFit experience. We require coaches to develop a personal relationship with each athlete to assist in reaching fitness goals. Our coaches understand limitations and will always help find solutions to scale workouts for each athlete. 

 

CrossFit404 equips its coaches with new learning opportunities, certifications and team seminars to bond and collaborate, and brainstorm ideas for improving the gym's collective experience. Interested in coaching with us? Email info@crossfit404.com with your letter of interest.

Jackie Fisher, General Manager & Coach

Jackie was a lifelong dancer turned CrossFitter back in the Summer of 2013, and once she understood what it meant to breathe heavy with intensity, she never looked back. Jackie believes that we can fix a lot of life’s “stuff” through movement and breathwork. She has been coaching since February of 2019 and doesn’t see herself on any other career path.

 

During her free time, Jackie enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors, preferably with her husband and two dogs. Jackie is a major foodie and could spend her entire life on a mission to find the best sourdough bread, coffee, and scones that this world has to offer.

 

“I’ve only been a member of 404 since October of 2020, but they have very clearly demonstrated high moral standards, and they bring a sense of inclusivity to every single person who walks through their doors. I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to not only train beside some really strong athletes, but to lead them as their coach is a true privilege that is not to be taken for granted.”
