TJ Binkley is the owner and head trainer at CrossFit Jai. He learned to appreciate athletics from an early age, playing soccer, football, and running track through his younger years. After graduating from college, TJ began pursuing his interests in the outdoors; ultra-lite backpacking, rock climbing, and good ol’ fashioned car camping. His desire to be fit stemmed from his goals in rock climbing.
TJ’s history with CrossFit began in 2006 when some of his co-workers at Denver health started doing workouts at Front Range CrossFit. Their success led TJ to try these methods on his own for several years. Finally in early 2011 TJ decided to go for it and join a CrossFit gym in southwest Denver. He hasn’t looked back since and has developed all kinds of fitness and diet related goals through his exposure to CrossFit. CrossFit is something that has come to define TJ and has led him to want to share his passion with others.
Previously TJ worked as an EMT at Denver Health, then as a Spanish teacher at Chatfield Senior High School in Jefferson County. He has coached all ages/levels of track & field and is still the strength and conditioning coach for the girls track & field team at Chatfield.
