JASON'S AMRAP MENTALITY

Being an athlete doesn’t stop when you exit the arena, field, or court. Being a competitor is a lifestyle, a lifestyle that Jason Khalipa knows well. As Jason struggled to balance training for the CrossFit Games, fatherhood, fitness entrepreneurship, coaching, and maintaining his business, he soon realized he needed to reevaluate his approach to life. 

It is now Jason's approach to life to wholeheartedly focus on the present without fear of reevaluation.

 
 
 
 
 
 

FITNESS CAREER

Jason has competed in the CrossFit Games on 8 separate occasions. Competing as an individual for 7 consecutive years, and wrapping up an 8th year as a team competitor, Jason is no rookie to the sport of fitness. Throughout his CrossFit Games career, Jason has only placed outside the Top 10 once, has won every Regional competition he has participated in, won the Spirit of the Games award, and has held all podium positions at the world championships. He was also named to Team USA 3x.

JASON'S FAMILY

When Jason isn’t at the gym or office, he is most likely spending time in his Los Gatos home with his wife and children. Jason married his high school sweetheart, Ashley, and the couple has two children Ava and Kaden.

Inspired by Ashley's passion for cooking, Jason and his family enjoy cooking meals at home, using fresh ingredients from their garden. The family also enjoys spending days at the beach, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with their extended family.

 
 
 
 
 

AVA'S DIAGNOSIS

In January 2016 Jason and his family were faced with an unknown they never thought they'd have to face. Jason’s daughter, Ava, was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of four. As all things in life, Jason and his family embraced Ava’s diagnoses, and faced it with unyielding positivity. Cancer, especially when it affects a child, isn’t the easiest conversation to have, but Jason has approached the subject with compassion and a determination to spread awareness. With all the confidence that Ava will win her battle, Jason aims to support other families faced with the same adversity and has since thrust himself into philanthropy to spread awareness.
