Jeremy Thiel

Founder
Crossfit Central

In 2005 Jeremy was introduced to the sport of CrossFit. Immediately, he knew he had discovered the path he had been seeking since he first started training. This was not just a game he was going to play, but something he was going take part in that would effect positive change on a large scale. Naturally he dove in head first. In 2005, along with his sister Carey Kepler, he took $500 and built a million dollar business in less than three years. He worked from his one bedroom apartment day in and day out blogging, emailing and programming; strong relationships sprouted out of his emphasis on the importance of being heavily involved in the Austin fitness community. Jeremy laid the foundation for his future by hiring a strong team; coupling his drive with people who were passionate about CrossFit and dedicated to the company’s vision.
