About Jordan's Barbell Club

Owner and Coach Tara Johnson is a CrossFit® Level 2 Trainer coaching all levels of fitness since 2013. 

I have done the videos, trained in the big box gyms and been disappointed paying rep counters disguised as a "Personal Trainers". I've found out over the years, every gym has a vibe, sometimes it fits, other times, it doesn't. So I set out on my own doing following CrossFit.com programming and found that it was the concept of functional movement that I loved, and I didn't have to try to fit in at a "Box" to be Fit.

I've been overweight, underweight, over-trained and under-trained. I've eaten like a body builder and a toddler. These personal experiences combined with credentialed training and years of working with individuals uniquely qualifies me to help you achieve your goals.

Fast forward from 2013 when I opened JBC to today, with Continuous Improvement as our mantra we're still here #trainingformylife! Whether training with me for short term goals or over years developing their passion for their quality of life, our members are success stories!

We have also invested thousands of dollars into our local community's youth service organizations in memory of my daughter Jordan. We are not a non-profit organization, but we operate like one. JBC Profits support youth and animal service organizations. We sponsor youth athletes, supporting Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, Blessings in a Backpack, United Way, Jackson County Animal Shelters and many, many more! 

I've gained the greatest education and experience from coaching many different shapes, sizes, lifestyles, capacities and varieties of humankind. The biggest lesson I've learned is that EVERY BODY is different and in order to be successful, they must be met where they are and be fully involved with the process! This focus, on the whole athlete, is where JBC earns the 5 Star Rating. It didn't happen overnight, and I have gratitude for every athlete that's ever worked with me for the education! CrossFit Inc showed me how to be an effective trainer, JBC members showed me how to be a Coach!
