Jill Donovan

I went to one CrossFit Brighton workout in 2009 (a bring-a-friend) and it’s been a major part of my life ever since! I have coached and attended thousands of classes and those hours have been some of the best in my life. CrossFit Brighton encompasses form, loads, reps, mobility, and nutrition while fostering growth in integrity and character- it’s the ultimate package.
As a youngster, I ran track and cross country and played softball and soccer. I graduated from U of M, was a teacher and a coach, had a family, and am blessed to be at the gym 6 days a week doing what I love- coaching, programming, and working out with my friends. I value the importance of a functional, full range of motion movements, strength, hard work, and our gym community!
