Allison & Jason Jachowski
Our passion is not only for fitness, but a combined love of the community created by a place where like minded people can congregate. Running a professional gym, with a well trained staff is the first priority, but creating an atmosphere where everyone is welcomed, included, focused on getting fit and enjoying the journey is a close second. We are extremely proud of where Odin is now and are really excited for our plans for the future. The future will certainly bring new challenges, but our mission is to bring a continuously improving experience while maximizing results in the gym. If you bring hard work and a good attitude, we will take care of the rest.

Allison is an avid athletics and fitness lover. She was first introduced to CrossFit when visiting freinds who own a CrossFit gym. After her first workout she was hooked for life. Her background as a competitive gymnast made her transition into CrossFit during her adult years, one that was very natural. After being the Head Coach of ODIN, she and her husband decided to sell their business and become the new Owners of ODIN CrossFit. Already being a small business owner and the Head Coach and Programmer for ODIN, the transition to Owner was very natural. She strives to share her passion and fitness knowledge with others and inspire them to live an active and healthy life. Outside of the gym she spends her time with her husband Jason, their son Simon, and basset hound Trudy.

Coach Jessica's story about CrossFit may be a little bit different than most in the fitness industry. She didn't always grow up with a passion for fitness or a natural ability to perform. In fact, a few years back, she found herself overweight and unhappy. She found CrossFit and immediately fell in love with the challenge, results and potential for growth. She enjoys helping ODIN athletes accomplish their individual goals, whether it be learning how to jump rope or getting their very first box jump. When Coach Jessica is not at ODIN, you can find her pursuing her newborn photography business or spending time with her husband (David), children (Graham, 6 and Greta, 4) and dogs (George & Tracker).

A friend of mine who had been doing CrossFit for a few years finally convinced me to try it. Coming from a guy who has played team sports my entire life, the Crossfit environment fit really well with my personality.
Crossfit is a personal fitness roller coaster that you can enjoy with your friends! At the end of the day it is all about working hard each day to try to make yourself better but having your friends there alone side you working their tails off definitely allows for that little extra push.
Coaching for me is all about the little things. The huge smile after finally hitting that lift, the subtle nod after receiving a cue that helps them, the genuine "Thank You" after a great wod. Those are some of the most enjoyable things about coaching. Having athletes that truly want to learn and get better make coaching so much fun.
