Jordan has an extensive history as an athlete and as a coach. Prior to using CrossFit as a way to fill his need for fitness, Jordan was an accomplished tennis player on the USTA Junior Circuit and was a cheerleader for the NC State Wolfpack before advancing on to serve as a coach for the nationally recognized team for 6 seasons.
Fun fact, as tennis players, Jordan and his brother, Lucas, combine to own every Men’s Singles title for the Waccamaw 2A Conference Championships from 2001-2009. As a cheerleader at NC State, Jordan was selected as an All-American twice (2008 and 2009) and collected four consecutive Top 4 National team finishes from 2005-2009.
Originally from Tabor City, NC, Jordan graduated from NC State University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and then earned his Juris Doctor degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law. When he isn’t coaching or working on his fitness, Jordan is a Special Prosecutor with the NC Conference of District Attorneys, which serves all 100 counties of North Carolina.
“Raleigh CrossFit has always been a safe place for me where I can feel comfortable being myself,” said Jordan. “I am looking forward to helping others achieve that same satisfaction in their individual fitness journeys. I love helping people. It is what I do every day as a prosecutor in my professional life. I am naturally drawn to coaching because it gives me another opportunity to help someone get something that they need.”
“Jordan’s drive for success and his passion for helping people encompasses every aspect of his life, inside and outside of the gym. His experience as an athlete and as a coach for a nationally recognized and accomplished athletic program will no doubt pour over into the walls of Raleigh CrossFit and we are excited to have that happen.”
