Being able to challenge people on a daily basis to strengthen their character is a blessing!

Jason developed a passion for teaching CrossFit in 2007 after being exposed to it by a friend. Through his personal physical fitness training and leading small group fitness classes at the YMCA, teaching others the movements and philosophies of CrossFit became a natural fit. He has been a coach at CrossFit Hendersonville since December 2009. He enjoys challenging others to attain higher levels of fitness and doing things they thought to be impossible.
“I believe CrossFit is the best fitness ‘program’ available. It will literally turn your mindset about fitness on its head, and then it all makes sense. As a police officer my fitness is imperative for the safety of those around me and myself. As a husband to Candi and father to Olivia and Lillie-Anne, CrossFit helps me to have a higher quality of life by being able to physically do what I want and not be limited by a lack of those things. CrossFit strengthens you in so many more ways than the physical. Mental and emotional strength are natural, and sometimes more important, byproducts.

Starting at an early age, Billy began competing in anything and everything that could be deemed a sport. Whether it was a game of basketball against his two older sisters, or if it was a contest on who could get a pair of balled up socks closest to the wall, Billy was competing. He grew up playing all types of sports from basketball, baseball, and football to golf, volleyball and karate where he achieved a rank of first degree black belt.
After he graduated from Union University in 1999, he moved to Memphis, where he met his wife Jessica, fellow Crossfit Hendersonville coach. They moved to Nashville in 2005 where they welcomed the addition of their two daughters, Madison and Claire.
In 2009 Billy was first introduced to Crossfit when Jessica recommended it to him after she had started training with CrossFit Hendersonville. Once he started, he fell in love with it. He received his Level 1 certification in July 2011 and has been actively training athletes since January 2012. One of Billy’s greatest pleasures from coaching comes when an athlete “gets it” with a certain lift or a certain skill that they have been working on.

Married 11 years to Coach Billy Shelton and Mommy to Madison (7) and Claire (6). Jessica began CF in 2009 to get back into pre-Mommy shape and get rid of the baby fat. What started as a very vane endeavor quickly changed to a lifestyle modification, and after seeing quick results with CrossFit Hendersonville, Jessica developed a passion for the sport. Being fit and involved with Cheerleading and Gymnastics since she was in elementary school, it only seemed natural to get certified and start helping others achieve their fitness goals.
Jessica is passionate about teaching others (especially new moms and new athletes) about doing away with the myth that you will never get that pre-baby (marriage, college, etc.) body back and also teaching them how to do it the right way… through diet, exercise AND mental toughness. Her favorite thing about coaching is seeing others athletes reach their goals and do things they never thought possible. CrossFit has brought back a lot of fun and “play” to Jessica’s life and she enjoys activities where she can challenge herself both physically and mentally to get out of her comfort zone. She enjoys anything outdoors and spending time with her family and friends.
