Welcome to the CSV Coaching Staff Jeff Fuhring AKA "Pterodactyl", "The Lion", now- "TORUK MAKTO"- or Dragon Rider.
Coach Jeff's Bio:
Jeff has been a personal trainer since 2008 and an athlete all his life. Growing up he enjoyed anything and everything active from playing sports to riding dirt bikes with his dad and brother. Prior to coming to San Jose, Jeff was a graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where he was the goal keeper for the men's soccer team. He decided to make his passion for sports and fitness part of his career and graduated with his B.S. in Recreation Administration with a concentration in Sports Management.
Jeff found CrossFit while playing semipro soccer. After ankle reconstruction surgery had prevented him from returning to soccer, he began searching for another sport. Once Jeff tried CrossFit he was hooked. CrossFit gave him the challenge and level of competition that he had been missing since leaving the competitive soccer scene.
One month after joining CrossFit Silicon Valley Jeff was competing in the CrossFit Open and then the NorCal Regionals. Soon after the Regional's Jeff completed his CrossFit Level 1 and CrossFit Olympic Lifting Certifications. Constantly striving to improve himself as a coach and keep training fun, Jeff also incorporated CrossFit into fitness sessions with his clients. Jeff is passionate about coaching, lives to compete and genuinely believes that CrossFit changes lives for the better.
Jeff logged in over 4500 personal training sessions and maintains certifications that include: CrossFit Level 1, CrossFit Olympic Lifting, Jon North Olympic Lifting, TRX Certified, NESTA PFT, and NCSF PT. In addition to coaching the CrossFit classes, Jeff is available for one on one and group fitness training.
