Jon Viklinetz, coach
Jon Viklinetz, also known as Vik was born and raised in Lebanon, Connecticut. In 1996 he studied Early Childhood Education at University of South Carolina Aiken where he pitched for the baseball team.
All throughout Vik’s life he has been involved in team sports. At Lyman Memorial High School Vik scored over 1,000 points on the basketball team, and was awarded All-State pitcher in 1993 and 1994. After graduation he started his coaching career in these disciplines.
A friend first introduced CrossFit to Vik in 2010. Reluctant at first, he waited three years before his wife, Tori convinced him to try it out. In February of 2013 he took his first class at CFA, and hasn’t stopped since. Vik’s dedication, passion, and drive have led him to be one of our most valued clients and now coach. In July 2016 he became CrossFit Level One Certified.
Vik works full time as a local business owner of Viktory Pool Solutions. He views CrossFit as an effective and efficient method to maintain and improve fitness in the time constraints of a busy professional and family life. With his background in endurance sports, he incorporates CrossFit in any training regimen as a means to prevent injury and increase strength.
In addition to CrossFit, Vik enjoys golfing, mountain biking, fitness competitions, off-road adventure triathlons, and running half marathons.
