Meet our July 2017 Athlete of the Month – Jason Cansler!!


Jason, better known as Lil J, is one of CFP’s OG members!  He’s been with us since the beginning and has not only been a faithful, loyal member, he’s grown and made tremendous progress!  Lil J is one of Coach Warren’s best friends, so he was obligated to join in the beginning, but he chose to stick around and we’re so glad he did!

After a year or so, his girlfriend at the time, Jackie came to join our community as well.  Now, 3 years later, they’re married and are both such a wonderful part of our community!!  Lil J is consistent as they come, in the box 4-5x a week, putting in the work, working on skills and cheering on his classmates.

We’re so glad you’ve stayed around, Jason, and are happy to FINALLY give you the recognition you deserve!  Keep it up, the best is yet to come!

Jason’s Athlete Profile

  1. Tell us about yourself in a few sentences. Life long athlete, played football and wrestled in high school. Found CrossFit through Warren Gheen four years ago. I love being fit and in shape, CrossFit was a way to still be fit and have fun with a great community. I love this gym and the people in it. I’ve put my blood sweat and tears into it.
  2. What do you hope to achieve through CrossFit? I hope to be able to reach my ultimate fitness potential through CrossFit as well as making life long friends and family.
  3. What is your favorite CF exercise? My favorite exercises are anything upper body. MU, pushups, push press, bench press, hspu…you name, it I love it.
  4. What CF exercise do you least like? Least favorite is anything with legs or running. I hate them all, but its a love-hate relationship. I hate them, but they still make me better.
  5. What would you tell someone considering trying CFP or CrossFit in general? Advice to anyone wanting to try it ? Come in, swallow that pride and get to work. Yes that girl is doing more or better than you, so is that guy. Who cares? You do better. You being here already means you are winning. No one will laugh at you or fault you for not doing well, so long as its your best that day. Who knows you might be asked to join a competition with your spouse and end up kicking ass in the process. #CFP #Flyhigh22
