Coach Jonathan Mendoza
Coach Jonathan’s athletic background include martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling. Recovering from recurrent shoulder dislocations, a slap-tear and labrum tear to the same shoulder, CrossFit introduced a direction in which he discovered two new passions, CrossFit Kids and Olympic Lifting.
Coach Jon is very involved in the CrossFit Kids program at CFRS, which does include coaching at CFRS and weekly visits to local schools to promote wellness and fitness so that children and younger teens can learn the value and importance of health early in their lives.
CFRS has used his artistic talents for many CFRS media/graphic design projects; Coach Jon will be finishing with an Art degree form Cal State Long Beach this summer.
His favorite aspect of CrossFit is the Olympic lifting. He coaches the beginner CFRS Oly Classes and he is looking forward to competing in an Olympic lifting event in the near future.
Coach Jon is a versatile coach at CFRS, able to coach any of the variety of classes offered at CFRS.
