Jessica Barton

Hi I'm Jess! I am a coach at Dreamtown CrossFit. I’ve lived here in the Tahoe/Truckee area for going on 14 years, but I'm originally from Baltimore, MD. I moved to Truckee after college and never looked back. 


I’ve been coaching CrossFit for 3 years.  I have my CFL1. I'm also a Specialist in Fitness Nutrition and Youth Nutrition Specialist.


I was an athlete my entire life and when I moved to Truckee I was looking to fulfill my competitive spirit. I spent a few years doing marathons but after having my daughter I didn't have time to go run for 3-4 hours a day. I was encouraged to try out CrossFit. After day one, I was hooked! I now train at a competitive level and love to compete in CrossFit. 


Outside of the gym, I love spending time with my daughter, dogs, and boyfriend. Summer is my favorite and I try to be outside as much as possible. I enjoy cooking and I'm a foodie at heart. 


I, unfortunately, was given poor nutrition guidance as a young athlete so my goal is to help guide our young athletes when it comes to proper health and wellness. I do one-one coaching with adults looking to enhance performance or change body composition as well. You can generally find me at Dreamtown training or hanging out with friends. I wouldn't change it for the world!
