Jenny Jaeger has been Crossfitting since April 2009 after the birth of her 2nd child. After years of lifting weights, running, swimming and biking she found Crossfit. She believes it is THE strength and conditioning program that achieves results. The combination of weightlifting with cardio conditioning, and quantitative results provides a diverse program that keeps athletes engaged. She became Crossfit Level 1 Certified and Movement and Mobility Certified & CrossFit Gymnastics Certified. Her passion is to help athletes of all abilities and ages achieve their fitness and health goals. She takes a special interest in helping athletes hone in their diet.
Jenny partnered with John in 2012 to become a co-owner at RMSDF. Reaffirming her commitment to better peoples lives through Self Defense & Fitness. A large part of Crossfit is "mind over matter". When people push themselves just a little more everyday, or just try for "one more rep" it's amazing to see what that does for their spirit. Whether you are just getting off the couch or have been Crossfitting for years, she works to create an atmosphere of inclusion at all levels and a team spirit within the gym. She wants to foster an environment where all ability levels can thrive and achieve their goals.
Lisa Middleton came to Rocky Mountain Krav Maga in June of 2006 searching for a practical self defense system that would compliment her training as a law enforcement officer for the State Patrol. "Anything that will keep me safer on the streets and bring me home to my family at the end of my shift is worth it's weight. I don't want to have to depend on luck to bring me home. Krav Maga offers me the skills and the confidence to ensure that I will be able to end the fight and come home." Lisa has a passion for life and enjoys long distance bicycling, swimming, running, weight lifting, hiking, spending time with friends and family, and in her spare time writes novels (none published yet but she is hopeful that her works will be on the best seller shelves soon). Lisa was asked to teach the women's self defense program and has loved seeing the growth in confidence in her students. "I've been a victim before and I know what helplessness feels like and I want to do what I can to help prevent other women from experiencing that. It is an amazing experience when you can walk in peace and confidence with out fear."
Hi,My name is Adam Nardi, and I have been doing Crossfit since January 2009. I am former United States Marine and I was in the infantry while I was in. I am currently Crossfit Level 1 certified and have been teaching it since April 2010. I have worked with those who have never been to a gym before, those who lost their inner athlete, and those who are advanced athletes. I love to help others reach their fitness goals and find themselves again. I am a firm believer in Crossfit programming and feel that it benefits everyone no matter what their level of skill is. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals! Semper Fidelis!
Greg Allyn started his training in Krav Maga with John Hallet in 2008. Greg came to Krav Maga with a background in traditional martial arts and immediately found Krav Maga to be what he was looking for in a self defense system. There is no other system in his opinion that gets a student up to speed and able to protect themselves faster than Krav Maga. Krav Maga offers simple and effective techniques that are tailored for the realities of today’s world. Krav works for people of all sizes, shapes and fitness levels.As a pilot for a major international airline Greg finds that the self defense techniques and the fitness derived from Krav Maga are a perfect complement to his duties as a professional pilot. In addition to the obvious benefits of practicing a reality based self defense system, Krav Maga and Cross Fit are the very best workout programs available to keep a person in top physical condition.Greg enjoys teaching and finds much satisfaction in watching students grow and gain confidence as they progress in the Krav Maga system. Greg is often joined in his Krav classes by his wife and two daughters.Greg Allyn is currently certified as a level 2 Krav Maga instructor and a Krav Maga Force, military and law enforcement instructor..

We are excited to be organizing a fundraiser for a powerful, moving cause. A non-profit group called Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (C.A.M.O.) provides outdoor therapeutic sports and life-skills opportunities to soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen who have suffered traumatic injuries while keeping America safe. The organization provides this service free of charge to these wounded veterans.
One of their satellite programs, C.A.M.O. Estes Park in Colorado, is adding a Fall program this September, and they need to raise $20,000 to fund the program.
We are going to raise it for them.
The Krav Maga Alliance plans to organize a seminar at every willing affiliate across the country — and around the world for those international affiliates who want to participate — on Saturday, May 25, 2013. Mark your calendars!
If we get 20 affiliates to get 25 people to pay $39 for a seminar, we can fund the entire operation and contribute to the lives of veterans and their family members who have made such enormous sacrifices for us.
At C.A.M.O. Estes Park, almost all the staff are volunteers. Fully 97% of the money raised goes directly to pay for the actual activities.
The Krav Maga Alliance will provide a flier, lesson plan, and other materials. All we want you to do is promote and run the seminar, and send in the tax deductible donation.
Please participate. Please save the date. Help us give back to those who have given so much.
More info to come!
