MyIgniton - Johnathan Haynes


Hello, my name is Johnathan. I am determined to incite a positive culture. I fell into the CrossFit community at a turning point in my life. I had just finished my football career at Texas A&M University and needed an answer to the “What’s next” question. When I was introduced to CrossFit, I knew very little about true wellness. Now it is my focus. Four years ago, I wanted to be the strongest, fastest and most athletic, but my training has evolved along with my mentality. Now, I seek balance and durability in all aspects of life. I want to enjoy the adventure as I press forward and lead my dreams.

I have had the honor of working on projects that have helped to sharpen my craft, storytelling. It’s such a basic description of what I am so passionate about. Past projects have included work with CrossFit Central, Garage Gym Blueprint, SICFIT, The Fittest Games, Godai Elements,  Outlaw Open, All Cities Open, Strictly Strength Project and various other events and identities. Currently, I am a storyteller for CrossFit Jääkarhu in Austin, Texas. I also am a part of the CrossFit Games media team. Ironically enough, teaching has become something I really enjoy. This has lead me to consulting and advising other companies and individuals on how to craft their own story. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

In the end, all we have are the things we do and say. I intend to do and say well.


Enjoy the Adventure
