Jeremiah Parvin, Coach

Meet Coach Jeremiah.

Jeremiah started coaching CrossFit while stationed on Air Force bases overseas in Kuwait and Afghanistan. In addition to his Level 1 CrossFit Certification, Jeremiah has also participated in the CrossFit Weightlifting Cert. Before starting to coach at Wildcat in December 2018, Jeremiah also completed the rigorous 25 Hour Wildcat CrossFit Coaching Internship.
Jeremiah has been crossfitting for over six years, with his first workout being the “Filthy 50.” He first heard about CrossFit from a buddy at work, after deciding to quit cycling for fitness due to safety concerns. “I wish I had found CrossFit earlier,” he said. “For me, coming to the box, having someone else program the workouts, with constant motivation from [my] fellow crossfitters has me hooked.”

Because he travels for work, Jeremiah has had the opportunity to drop in at CrossFit gyms around the world, including at CrossFit Reykjavik, in Iceland. Despite often being the only person in class who doesn’t speak the language, the universality of CrossFit makes it easy to relate. “No matter the language spoken, everybody wants you to do your best and get a great workout,” Jeremiah explained.
He and his wife, Vanessa, have been married for over 11 years, and have 4 kids ranging in age from six to 10 years.  As for his day job, Jeremiah is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force and an A-10C Evaluator Pilot at Davis-Monthan AFB.  “I routinely fly twice a week,” he said, “So there is a chance if you look up on any given day, it could be me flying!”

Jeremiah coaches Wildcat group classes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 5:30 am and 6:30 am. He is also available for one-on-one Personal Training. “I enjoy helping and encouraging all athletes to make small improvements in strength, conditioning and  mobility,” Jeremiah said.  “Nothing is better than celebrating PRs and ‘first times’!”
