JD grew up living a very active lifestyle, playing team sports in a competitive environment from a young age. Once his playing days were done, he found CrossFit to be the perfect blend of the competitive atmosphere and mental toughness that he missed in sports. After a cross country bicycle ride, JD landed back in Nashville, and quickly joined Waldo in ownership at On The End. While competition can be fun, JD's greatest enjoyment at the gym is being able to help people accomplish goals that would have seemed impossible in the past. By using CrossFit as a tool to help others accomplish goals, JD thrives on daily interactions with members both inside and outside of fitness.
