Jason – Coach

Jason Szaroz

After a dare from his wife Paula back in 2012 to try his first Cross-training workout, Jason was hooked. “Linda” was the workout and it floored him! Jason loves to use his fitness outside of the gym in many different ways and usually does things the hard way just to see if he can. Jason also loves learning new skills, trying new things, working hard and having fun, and believes that this is what keeps us young. Of course Cross-training incorporates all of these things so to him it’s basically the Fountain of Youth. Jason is a Level 1 Certified CrossFit Trainer and coaches our regular Cross-training classes.


Jill – Coach

Jill Bruder B.Kin., CAT(C)

As an Athletic Therapist Jill has always used functional movements to rehabilitate people back from injury. This makes Consisten Fitness Pincher Creek and the CFPC principles a great fit for her. She is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and has been here since the beginning. When not coaching regular classes she can be found in her office, ReAction Athletic Therapy, dealing with injuries. She is also a member of the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team and you can see her working at pro rodeos and bull ridings across western Canada.
