Jon Shoop, Store Owner
Jon was born and raised in Southern California along with his older brother and younger triplets.
The Shoop family has always been an active family with twice yearly trips to Mammoth Mountain for skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking in the summer.
Most days the Shoop kids could be found walking around the neighborhood with Mrs. Shoop, while weekends were spent at the beach and riding bikes.
One of Jon’s first memories is actually being in the daycare of a local gym while his parents worked out.
Growing up Jon was active in a variety of sports like Karate, gymnastics, BMX riding, bodyboarding and surfing, and snowboarding.
In his early teens Jon was playing soccer, baseball, and was a wrestler on the club level team.
In high school Jon was one of the only freshman capable of wrestling in Junior Varsity tournaments. He went on to letter in wrestling his Sophomore year of high school.
Throughout high school Jon played football starting every game at his offensive line position in both his Junior and Senior years of high school.
Jon’s senior year was one of the best years for the school’s football team. That year the team became league champions in their division for the first time in a decade.
If that wasn’t enough, Jon & his wrestling team mates won their league, becoming CIF Champions in the same year.
Now Jon works out daily at either Lifetime Fitness or 24 Hour fitness in Mansfield, TX. where his original store is located. For fun Jon mountain bikes and does trail running during the warmer months to stay active.
Now he’s taken his fitness to the next level by competing in his first fitness competition a day after he and Cody Stephens opened up Total Nutrition Tyler.
The competition was the Ronnie Coleman Classic, Jon competed in Men’s Physique and placed in the top ten of his class.
