There might not be another Rogue athlete as relentlessly ambitious and consistently productive as San Jose native Jason Khalipa. Since first taking up CrossFit at Santa Clara University, Khalipa has spent nearly a decade carving out and defending his territory at the top of the sport. In 2008, he earned the title of “Fittest Man on Earth” at the CrossFit Games. And unlike many of his competitors at that event, Jason has remained an annual force at the Games ever since, with six Top 10 finishes in all-- including 2nd overall in 2013 and 3rd in 2014. A friendly rivalry with 4-time champion Rich Froning helped further elevate both Khalipa’s game and the appeal of competitive CrossFit as a whole.
When not competing as an athlete, Jason has made a huge impact through his work as a CrossFit coach, ambassador and box owner. He runs NorCal CrossFit as well as several other major facilities on the west coast. Like Rich Froning, Khalipa has said that he may retire from individual competition in 2015 to focus on team events and his growing businesses. If true, he will leave at the top of his game.
Jason is married to his high school sweetheart Ashley and they have two children, Ava and Kaden.
