Ali Blankmeyer

Ali Blankmeyer

A former D1 Field Hockey Player and Captain, Ali has strong base in Sports Performance as well as CrossFit. During her transition from college to the “real world”, she quickly noticed the motivation she had in the gym was lacking – insert CrossFit Hoboken. It was here that her competitive nature was married with constantly varied, high intensity work outs. The team camaraderie she was also missing from college was also met with gyms supportive community.

Ali enjoys being able to share her knowledge and wisdom in all things with health and wellness. Over the years, she’s also had experience working as a Sports Performance Coach at the Annex and carries that knowledge with her in her own fitness journey. She believes we should be able to wake up and work out however our body feels and wants to move that day. Longevity is the life-long goal!

Jon Yuko

Jon Yuko

Jon has always been highly active in sports throughout his youth, where he continued his athletic career in football at the collegiate level. Soon after relocating to the NYC Metro area for work, he began working out at Crossfit Hoboken in early 2018. Indifferent about the many stereotypes hovering around Crossfit, Jon jumped in with a positive attitude, and soon found a passion for it.

“I love how Crossfit is for everyone. For those who want to compete, to those who may be introducing themselves to a healthier lifestyle for the first time. But ultimately, I love the atmosphere that is created when all of these people come together to work hard for an hour – it creates a special community. As a coach, I hope to contribute to helping those achieve a higher level of fitness, while making friends along the way.”
