Coach Jim Koske founded CrossFit Oyster Point with his wife and fellow athlete Dianne. Since opening its doors in 2010 as one of the first CrossFit Affiliates in the Tidewater area, this athletic training center has become the prime coaching resource for high school, college, tri-athletes, runners, recreational athletes and those just seeking to improve fitness. Jim’s diverse skill set, focused coaching and warm personality allows him to utilize his professional training as a strength coach and physical therapist to provide a progressive, safe and positive environment for all his athletes.
Jim graduated from Old Dominion University with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. Over the past 15 years, he has helped individuals achieve goals related to functional mobility. Five years ago Jim saw the opportunity to enhance his ability to help individuals optimize their functional aptitude and fitness level by becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Coach. Jim passionately believes in the life-changing benefits of functional fitness. His goal as a physical therapist/fitness coach is to inspire individuals to make long-term lifestyle changes, and he has found that CrossFit’s scalable intensity, attention to improved mobility/stability throughout the body and commitment to functional movement makes it the perfect program for individuals of all ages and abilities.
Jim believes that the mindset of an individual who participates in sport and fitness training plays a vital role in the success of any program. He fosters a supportive training environment to help clients overcome self-doubt or perceived limitations to achieve their full potential.
