#MemberCrushMonday: Sam Jacobs


What do you do with your time, for work, play, etc? I am a teacher and the head football coach at Sunnyslope high school. Since we are currently in season, all my time is there. Fun time consist of hanging with my hot wife and two rad teenage kids. You can currently catch us teaching Jessa how to drive and watching Jude shred on the guitar, or watching episodes of Smallville.

What is something about you that would surprise us? In high school, standing 5’10” tall, I was the starting center on my varsity basketball team. And no, I cannot jump.

How do you make a difference in the community? Trying to build tomorrow’s leaders through football. My wife and I also volunteer for Young Life.

Why do you choose to workout at Chuckwalla? My brother and some buddies got me here the first time, and the accountability has kept me around. And my wife kicks butt at CrossFit, and I can’t let her get stronger then me. She’s already cuter and smarter.

How does Chuckwalla help you be strong for life? As I get older, I’m fighting Father Time, who eventually always wins. So lifting heavy weights keeps me young and feeling great, well mostly sore, but the good sore.

What is your favorite lift/workout? As a former football player, my body is used to and loves bench and power clean. Oh, and thrusters and burpees… I die a little inside every time we do them.
