About Me

Hi, I'm Jes.

CrossFitter by day, coffee addict in the am, ashtanga yogi in the evenings, software engineer on weekdays, chef on the weekends, piggy 24/7, local island girl at heart, and the biggest dog-lover you will ever meet!

I started doing CrossFit in January 2011, with the goal to get strong.  Sold from my first class during a visit at home, I signed up immediately to train at NorCal CrossFit in the Bay Area, and loved it ever since!  My favorite movements are pretty much everything on the rings, and anything with a full squat.  I currently train six days a week, and rest on Sunday's.  Though, you can always find me with my favorite pair of rings :)

If you have any questions, or you just want to be friends, I can be reached via: facebook, @jesliao, or liao.jes [at] gmail.com.

    Not really sure how to do this so I posted as anonymous.
