John Male


Coach John was born in Del Rio Texas as a military brat. While young he moved all over the world with his family and he fell in love with team sports because of the competition and the team unity. He joined the United State Air Force in Oct 2000 and transferred to the AF Reserve in 2005 where he currently serves as a SMSgt at March ARB, CA. Earlier in his Air Force career John discovered Rugby. He has played for several competitive men’s clubs, and still fosters his love for team sports today. During his last deployment to Kandahar Afghanistan in 2013 he was introduced to CrossFit and loved the inclusive team exercises. John really embraced CrossFit when he returned to Las Vegas and has been training consistently since 2014. Currently, John has never been stronger and has experienced significant relief from the back problems that he had been enduring before he joined. John received his CrossFit Level 1 in 2015 and coaches foundations at Iron Talon CrossFit since early 2016. He looks forward to seeing our members grow every day at the box and perform movements/lifts that they never thought they could do. He has certifications in CrossFit Gymnastics, Rowing & Weightlifting.
