TOM “ QUITPROOF ” JONES
Tom " QUITPROOF " Jones is most likely the greatest athlete you've never heard of.
Extreme athlete and Marine veteran Tom Jones is passionate about the United States of America, the Constitution, and the traditional values of freedom, family, and faith.

Tom’s regular training and lifestyle includes a holistic approach to mind, body, and spirit. His cross-training activities include weight lifting, circuit training, running, stretching, cycling, surfing, hydro-foiling, hiking, and walking. Spiritually, Tom has a strong faith in God.

A man of physical prowess and great heart, Jones engages in many challenges to raise awareness and funds for causes close to his heart.
