Coach Jacob Buckenmyer

Functional Fitness Coach

"I truly enjoy coaching and seeing people go through the same transformations I have. It’s a good feeling to help people achieve goals or skills they never thought possible."

Jacob grew up in Southeast Missouri, where he wasn’t very athletic until high school. In high school, he discovered swimming and became all-state in both the 100m backstroke and the medley relay events.

Following high school, he decided to attend a school that had no swimming program, so I was at a bit of a loss of what to pursue athletically. After a few years in college I was introduced to Functional Fitness by a close friend. I immediately and enthusiastically dove into the world of competitive fitness. When he graduated college he moved to California to pursue a career in acting, but has been lucky enough to find opportunities to pursue and coach my other big obsession, Fitness, between acting jobs.

Fun Fact: It’s a dream of mine to play Gaston in the stage musical version of Beauty and the Beast (if you ask, I can bust out a few bars for fun)
