Jacob Praetzel

Hi, I’m Jacob Praetzel. I am currently a student at Baylor University and will be graduating in
December 2022. I have been coaching for the last two years, getting my Level-1 in June 2020,
and recently receiving my Level-2 in December 2021. I started CrossFit back in 2015 during my
freshman year of high school at Lake Hamilton. I quickly fell in love with the community and
methodology of CrossFit and went from overweight, unconfident, and out of shape to becoming
an entirely new, confident, healthy person. As a coach, I pride myself on being very engaged
with every class. What I feel makes me stand out as a coach is that when coaching I actively
implement things that I have learned in classes such as Exercise Physiology, Kinesiology, and
Anatomy to keep athletes safe and properly prepared for any workout. If you ever have
questions about the competitive side of CrossFit or any questions about why we do things the
way we do, then feel free to reach out! I look forward to seeing everyone while I am in town for
the summer!
