I opened CrossFit Mansfield in April of 2008, the original CrossFit gym in Mansfield, TX. My goal then was the same as it is now: to provide safe, efficient, quality training to my members. I believe in training hard but smart. Safely and effectively getting out of that comfort zone is where you will find your results! I believe in moving your body properly, in ways that it is naturally designed to move. Couple this with strength and conditioning and you will see positive changes, both physically and mentally.
Before founding CrossFit Mansfield, I served in the United States Marine Corps for 4 years active and 3 in the reserve. I also served as a Firefighter/Paramedic at Mansfield Fire Rescue for 7 years before running CrossFit Mansfield full time.

I grew up and worked on the family farm in North-Central Iowa and have taken the work ethic instilled in….I’m kidding, that’s someone else. I grew up in Mansfield, K-12. I played football and ran track for Mansfield High. I was raised in a very competitive house hold and learned at an early age, quitting was not an option.
I attended UTA and was trained as a decathlete, until receiving a scholarship for the javelin and pole vault. At UTA I was blessed enough to be a part of two conference championships. I started my career coaching in 1999 for MISD and continued competing in the javelin. In 2002 qualified provisionally for the UTA championships. I have always loved competing, and that’s what drew me to CrossFit. As a vaulter, I always enjoyed and respected the gymnastics aspect of CrossFit’s exercise programming. My favorite thing about it is the Olympic lifts, and the sense of accomplishment after completing a demanding workout.
I am currently the Defensive Coordinator at MHS and was also head track coach for Mansfield for the past 12 years. I am in my 18th year of coaching and love helping people achieve greatness.

My name is Myles Jackson, I have been coaching in fitness for about 5 years. I started my fitness career while I was active duty in the Marine Corps helping Marines stay in shape and stay within regulation standards. Once I got out of the Marines I worked at Lifetime Fitness in Mansfield where I became a Master Trainer and Nutrition Coach and also became a Development Manager helping trainers there excel their career and achieve their goals.
I enjoy seeing people’s lives change for the better and I love to be a part of that process. However big or small your goal is I enjoy seeing you accomplish it. I have had clients lose close to 100lbs of fat and I have also had clients only want to gain 2lbs of muscle and I have had clients that just want to feel better and everything in between.
I’m here to get in shape stay and shape and have a fun time in the process. I love questions and if I don’t know the answer I will find it out with you. Looking forward to meeting everyone and working towards our goals together.
