Melanie Jump


My name is Melanie Jump!! I will be graduating from The University of Arizona in 2026. I’m majoring in chemical engineering. 

I’m originally from outside of Seattle, WA. The summer I graduated high school in 2022, my family moved outside of Phoenix, AZ. 

I started CrossFit when I was 12, in early 2016. I loved it after my first class and have been doing it since then along with many competitions. Seeing people come together to meet their individual goals while finding fellowship with others is what makes CrossFit so unique and fun. I love the challenge it gives me every day and it’s amazing to find such a great community of friends at the gym.

I started coaching at my old gym back up in Washington for a year until we moved. I loved coaching classes and helping others achieve their goals! When I moved to Tucson for school in August 2022, Purgatory was the first gym I tried out and loved it, I didn’t need to try the rest in Tucson! Everyone is so welcoming, classes are fun and social while still competitive, coaches are friendly and knowledgeable, and the programming is amazing!

In my free time, I like to hang out with my friends and family, play board and card games, bake, cook, and travel.
