Jesse Bahrke – Owner / Head Coach
Jesse began his career at a physical therapy office where he gained experienced with different injures and complications. This experience was incredibly valuable for many of his clients that have come to him for training, as some are recently out of a surgery or have chronic conditions. During his time there he was also coaching boot camp classes and ran speed and agility camps. After completing school and the NASM certification, he worked for Equinox where he acquired multiple certifications and furthered his education in personal training.
It was while working at Equinox where he stumbled upon CrossFit. It completely changed the way he looked at training for himself and for others. The functional and varied movements in CrossFit along with a healthy little dose of competition had him hooked for life. He soon became an L1 verified CrossFit coach and started coaching classes part time at Windy City CrossFit. Part time turned into full time and he never looked back. In 2015 he had an incredible opportunity to be involved in opening a box in Wheeling, which brought him back to the suburbs. Opening a box of his own in Wauconda, closer to friends and family has been a wonderful experience.
