DFX Coach

Jonathan Denton


What do you enjoy most about coaching?
What I enjoy most about coaching is seeing an athlete accomplish something they didn’t think was possible for themselves. CrossFit provides a stage for people to continually push themselves and being able to witness those accomplishments is priceless.

In which area do you excel the most in your job?
I feel I excel in the teaching aspect of coaching. I may not have the best eye or motivational skills, but I can teach. I like taking an athlete from having no knowledge of the movements to being fully functional CrossFit athletes.

When did you start CrossFit and when did you start coaching CrossFit?
I started CrossFit in 2010 and started coaching in 2013.

Do you have a career outside of CrossFit?
Outside of CrossFit, I have a career as a financial advisor.

Where are you from?
Dallas, TX. Even though I wasn’t born there and don’t currently live there, I will always be a Texan.

Any additional certifications or accolades?
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Aviation and a Master’s degree in Biblical Counseling.
