MEET THE TAHENYS
Jay has been involved in fitness his whole adult life. In 2013, at age 35, he joined a local CrossFit affiliate. Within a few short months, he achieved weight loss goals and strength gains that had eluded him for years at conventional gyms. While those physical gains were his initial goals, he quickly realized that there was so much more to CrossFit than results in a mirror. Seeing people overcome chronic health issues with diet and exercise and regain their health was incredible. He saw that individuals of all ages and ability levels could come into a gym and become part of an incredibly supportive community that provided both the motivation and the accountability to help them reach their goals. It was not long after starting CrossFit that he decided on the goal of opening his own affiliate.
Fast forward seven years….Now that Jay is nearing retirement from serving over 25 years in the military, his dream of owning his own CrossFit affiliate has become a reality. Jay is joined in his journey by his wife Liz and two daughters, Addyson and Jillian. Together they hope to create the type of community that is welcoming of all and judging of none. We invite you to join CrossFit Cygnus and become part of our community.
