My name is Jeana Echols. I am one of the Coaches and Personal Trainers at CrossFit Cortez/Evolution Gym. I am so excited to be doing what I love! CrossFit Cortez/Evolution Gym is a wonderful place to become healthy and physically fit no matter your fitness level. The wonderful team and its members offer a camaraderie like no other gym. You leave your ego at the door and step into a positive atmosphere where everyone is cheering you on!
I have had a love for health and fitness my whole life, through hiking, backpacking, kayaking, biking, snowboarding, soccer and CrossFit. I have seen the decline of physical mobility and stability in the lives of loved ones and friends. Through the years this has deepened my desire to help educate and motivate individuals to a more functional and healthy life that creates longevity, self-confidence and joy without pain. I believe the key to this success is through building a solid foundation. I am passionate about using correct form, proper technique, and injury prevention in a fun environment. I believe that we all, regardless of our current conditioning, can achieve the goals we have for ourselves. With consistency and perseverance, anything is possible!
I am a mother of two wonderful children and I have the most loving and caring husband. They are my ultimate joy! I love working with Mia (my Labradoodle), who is training to be a therapy dog to assist with the aftermath of traumatic events and to work with children and the elderly. I love to be physically active and I love to be constantly learning and researching anything related to the body and it’s functional movements and limits.
