My name is Jason Khalipa and I am the owner of Crossfit Santa Clara. After graduating from Santa Clara University I made the decision to do what I love and open a gym, I have never been more happy since. I am a Level 2 Crossfit Certified instructor in addition to Crossfit Running, Crossfit Kid's, and Crossfit Powerlifting Certified. On the weekend's I travel around the World as a Crossfit HQ coach to help train the trainers at Crossfit Certifications. In 2008 I won the Crossfit Games, I finished 5th in 2009 being honored with the spirit of the games award. Prior to opening Crossfit Santa Clara I was a trainer at Crossfit Unlimited in Milpitas. I was first introduced to Crossfit in 2006 by Austin (Crossfit Unlimited), it took me about 6 months to finally switch completely over to the good side. I had become so used to my previous muscle head workouts that it was extremely difficult for me to let go of my bicep curl and tricep extensions. Thankfully I finally committed to Crossfit and am now in the best shape of my life, period. Crossfit is by far the most effective workout I have ever done and I preach it to everyone as if I was part of a cult. I am so sick of watching people enroll in gyms and not get any results, with Crossfit if you put in the work you are guaranteed to get results. I am extremely enthusiastic about where Crossfit is going in the future and I look forward to being a part of it.
