Functional Fitness Coach
Jake’s story started like many great ones do – just man and his dog. As a K-9 Handler in the United States Marine Corps (circa 2011) Jake discovered CrossFit and the intricacy of functional fitness while on active duty. His infatuation with the variability of training moved him across the state from Beaufort to Greenville, after getting out of the Marines, to start coaching full time. For the past five years, Jake has worked at Swamp Rabbit Cross Fit as a dedicated trainer. Don’t let Jake’s many skills and certifications fool you - CF L2 and certifications in kettlebell, weight lighting and gymnastics - he’s just a regular joke-tellin’ guy ready to help you achieve your personal best at The Outpost.

Murphy’s day-to-day responsibilities include attracting new members and cat maintenance. Fun fact: Murphy was once hit by a car and walked away unscathed, earning him the title The Outpost’s Most Badass Employee. In his spare time, Murphy enjoys long walks on the pavement and sniffing stuff.
