Jeremy Knight
Owner/Coach

Jeremy is the owner and a Level 1 certified trainer at CrossFit Tucker. Prior to joining the CrossFit Tucker family in 2013, Jeremy was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. After struggling with his weight and the side effects of his Crohn’s medication, Jeremy discovered the Paleo Diet and lost 50 pounds in five months and transitioned off of his medication. Then, when he and his wife relocated to Atlanta in 2013, Jeremy took his health to the next level and joined CrossFit Tucker, where he went on to lose another 20 pounds during his first few months.

“I feel healthier than I have felt in years, and I’m in the best shape of my life,” Jeremy said. “It has been a challenging, but rewarding journey, and I love being part of the CFT family.”

When he’s not working out with the 9:30 a.m. crew or keeping the gym in top notch condition, Jeremy and wife and kids enjoy spending time outside and enjoying an active lifestyle.

Jason Winterstein
Coach

Jason Winterstein is a Crossfit Level 1 and Crossfit Endurance certified coach at CrossFit Tucker. The son of a high school wrestling coach, he was meagerly active in sports as a child.  He enjoyed soccer and wrestling, but never really excelled particularly in either.  After years of inactivity, Jason rediscovered fitness at the birth of his second child.  He initially dabbled in martial arts, then did a stint of obstacle course races which led to longer distance races.

Jason got started with CrossFit in 2013 as an experienced trail runner with the goal of building his core and becoming a better overall runner. Today, Jason has successfully completed multiple ultra marathons. When he’s not running ridiculously long distances or CrossFitting, Jason breaks out his utility belt and tools and makes upgrades at the CFT gym.

Carey Allison
Coach

Carey Allison was introduced to CrossFit in 2013 after having her third child.  While fitness has always been an important part of her life, she still felt that she needed more of a challenge, that is until she discovered CrossFit.  Participating in CrossFit only served to increase her love for health and fitness.  The work outs never get boring, there is always a new challenge.

As an educator, one who has taught both Physical Education and coached gymnastics, it seemed a natural progression for her to acquire her Level 1 Certification in August, 2013.  Shortly after, she began coaching Adults and then Kids.  This allowed Carey to combine her passion for CrossFit with her love of coaching.  It is exhilarating to watch athletes not only transform their bodies, but also change their perceptions of what they think their bodies are able to do.  To that end, Carey feels extremely lucky to be a part of the CrossFit Tucker family!
