Jeff Berry, President, BIS (Business/Psychology) Arizona State
Jeff’s entrepreneurial experience, in addition to his operational, sales, and management proficiencies, all contribute to the organizational direction and growth of Mission 6. His path to the fit life wasn’t an easy one. Despite being an avid three season athlete throughout his youth, Jeff struggled with heroin addiction beginning in his senior year in high school. This eventually landed him at rock bottom and rehab. For many years, as part of the recovery process, he mentored troubled youth who were also struggling with addiction and eventually found the gym as his new home.
His passion for CrossFit began in 2012 when he was introduced to the sport while searching for a more competitive level of fitness. From the very beginning, Jeff noticed the high level of camaraderie among the athletes in his box. When he realized this was consistent throughout the entire CrossFit community, he knew he was at “home.” With new found wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit Jeff started his own commercial finance company alongside a successful business development career.
Sharing the same love for fitness and nutrition, Jeff and Jason decided to combine their skills and knowledge to bring high quality, affordable supplementation to all levels of athletes worldwide. As seen with Jason, the need to help others was born from Jeff’s own struggles with addiction in which the fit life helped him conquer.
Megan Jones, Executive & Co-Founder
Megan grew up an athlete almost her entire life. The appeal of athletic competition has always been a driving force in her life. From gymnastics as a young girl, to swimming in her teenage years that desire to compete and progress has always been very important. But, Megan struggled with body image issues like most women do in the world today.
It wasn’t till she was introduced to CrossFit at 29 years old and becoming a mother that she learned to love and accept her body. More than anything, as mother she wants her three daughters to grow up in a world where they can be proud of their bodies and athletic accomplishments. Megan truly believe that CrossFit allows women to gain a stronger sense of self and allows women to be strong.
Megan came on board with Mission 6, through working on her nutrition with Jason, and immediately was on board with the vision of providing a supplement that would help athletes of all levels achieve their goals. Currently, Megan serves as a coach (CF-L1) at CrossFit Infernal based out of Chandler, AZ. She’s also competed at the Regional level and currently manages the athlete team for Mission 6 Nutrition.
