Jared’s story is pretty crazy. Although most of us know him as the really strong dude with the beard who went to the CrossFit Games... He was also a strongman competitor at a body weight of 305lbs and at a height of just 5’6”. He talks about a particular time in his life where he even lost almost 100lbs in a 3 month window to start his CrossFit journey. An insane feat of his that I feel is rarely ever touched on. 


Beyond his oscillating competitive endeavors, I talk to Jared about his opinions on CrossFit, what’s important to him at this very moment, and if he has aspirations of competing at the games again anytime soon.


Did I mention that he also goes over some of his favorite training cues to get better at Olympic lifting as well!? May want to tune in just for that!
