Who is Coach John?

Who is John Heltzen? Well, I guess I’m a writer, thinker, and an observer of all things. I’m a trainer too.


I’m big into health and fitness. This quote describes tumblr_static_img_20130421_085910_070-2my approach to training:

“He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche


I use CrossFit programming, sports training, and martial arts to achieve the highest level of fitness. Have been for years. Now if you’re looking for a formal biography, I can tell you about the athletes I’ve trained high school, Junior Olympians, collegiate, and pro athletes. List all my certifications, actually, I will do that… NASM-CPT, NASM-CES, NASM-PES, NASM-GPTS, NASM-Weight Loss, FMS cert, Athletes’ Performance PHASE 1 mentorship, SFG Kettlebell, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, CrossFit Strongman, CrossFit Mobility, TRX Sports Medicine, TRX Rip Trainer. My weight loss experience about 20 years ago, when I lost 81 lbs. in seven months, but does that really matter? I’m here. (for more go to Linkedin or the official EDGE CAMP website) You’re here. Welcome. Read. Explore the archives. Enjoy. I’ve got a lot to say. I hope it helps you in some way.


Eat. Train. Thrive.
Coach John
