We are a team of exercise scientists, recreational athletes, and entrepreneurs that believe everything can be done better, including fitness. Sometimes getting back to our roots of playing in the dirt all day long really is better than bigger and newer.  Yes, gyms are a staple in our culture but we want to make the outdoors a staple so you can live a happier, healthier, life.

Look for more philosophy on health, fitness, and life on our BLOG.

Scott Jones has a ridiculous passion of getting people outside. After co founding Lifes2Short Events  and starting Athlete On Fire and Becoming Ultra with the goal of inspiring and empowering athletes of all kinds to get out and get after it, Daily Outdoor Workouts just made sense.  It is the love child conceived no less than 8 years ago, only now, we know how to build websites!  Scott specializes in running and sport specific training for his workouts.

DSC04817Jeremy Grev has always been an outdoor enthusiast. Growing up in MN he was always outside exploring, fishing, running,  biking, skiing, etc. Having played many sports and always challenging himself with other physical endeavors, two degrees in exercise physiology helped him understand how the body works and how to make it work better.  His love for adventure and the outdoors eventually led him to nature’s playground, known to others simply as Colorado. When he isn’t outside playing, he can be found in a puddle of tears, as we all imagine anyone would be without fresh air and sweat.  Jeremy is our DOW mastermind and creates most of the amazing DOWs you love, specializing in Winter sports and mountain sports conditioning.

IMG_4965Coach Tony Middleton
is the owner and head coach for Unlimited Potential Fitness, an organization that he created to help people unlock their unlimited potential through fitness coaching, personal training, and obstacle course racing.  His passion for fitness started 8 years ago when he discovered the burgeoning sport of Parkour and blossomed a few years later when he started obstacle racing. Now he teaches OCR bootcamps five times a week in Thornton and Boulder and is a team captain and facebook editor for Colorado Obstacle Racers, the largest obstacle racing club in the state.  In 2013 he was selected to be an Brand Ambassador and in 2014 he became a Men’s  Health Urbanathalon Training Ambassador. Although he is the father of two and holds down a day job doing software engineering, he still makes time to train athletes and compete in obstacle races.  In fact, he placed first in age group at the Colorado Spartan Sprint this year and is ranked in the top 15 for age group nationally. Coach Tony has completed four coaching certifications:
Parkour Level 1 Coach
AHA CPR/AED + First Aid
ACE Group Fitness Instructor
