THE Krewe Fitness STORY
Jonathan DeJean - OWNER
Jonathan DeJean has always enjoyed coaching and helping people in fitness-related things, and he always knew he wanted to be a personal trainer in some capacity. “When I began doing functional fitness classes, I immediately fell in love with the community and sense of accomplishment, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that,” he says.
Jonathan loves helping his members get through their struggles and make a breakthrough. “I love seeing a suggestion I make work and make a difference for that person. Fitness is not a one-size-fits-all situation and I really enjoy helping people achieve their specific goals.”
Coach Heidi has been with Krewe since 2018, and found her passion for the sport after looking for a way to improve her health and well being after a lengthy battle with Lyme Disease. With a background in marathon running and weight training, she has found a passion in mentoring others to help them achieve their own process of discovery.
Coach Ricio is five years into his CrossFit journey, and found his passion for it after playing a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, football, and bodybuilding. With a background in powerlifting, he has found a love for helping members make improvements in their own strength and mobility.
“it wasn’t until I found CrossFit that I realized how much our community could help others improve their quality of life through movement,” he says. “Once I realized that we could help prevent illness by having fun in the gym, I knew I had to be a part of inspiring others to get stronger and have better mobility”
When Coach Ricio isn’t helping members at the gym, he also enjoys music and good food.
Coach Emley has been with Krewe since 2018. She found their passion for the sport after looking for ways to help with her lower back pain, and finding it in the Deadlift. With a background in soccer, and yoga, she has found a passion for passing on her knowledge to members.

Coach Tiffany Leon has been with Krewe since 2018 and specializes in working with Longevity Members who are 50 and older. "I was considering a career change and was asked if I ever thought about coaching.
I was hesitant at first but then I realized that it would be something that I would love to do”, she says. “I began a mentorship with Heidi and started to coach our Longevity Members. This was the best decision I’ve ever made.”
Tiffany’s experiences have fostered a desire to improve the quality of life of her students. “It’s very rewarding to see my members get stronger, move faster, and advance in their range of motion,” she says.
