Jonathan Watters Owner of Elev8 WellnessEmail Jonathan Read Bio Jonathan Watters I’m a caretaker, father, husband, academic, business owner, and health and fitness industry expert. My week is dominated by family care, coaching hours, business management, investing in and assisting with my wife’s businesses and philanthropic endeavors, and educating peers on career-pathing and finer points of industry do’s and don’ts.The fact of the matter is that this city is the most genuine and complete community in the state. It’s inarguably the most central location in the greater metro area. Every outer suburb is equidistant from the middle of Richfield. Richfield has all the presence without any of the pretentiousness. I know and like every person on my block. They know me and my kids. Some are practically family. And no matter how many people from other parts of Minnesota tell me how great their respective cities are, almost none even know their neighbors, let alone befriend and regularly hang out with their neighbors. People tell me how great Edina is, or Eden Prairie, or Wayzata, or Stillwater, or Prior Lake. “Great,” I say, “and who are your top five favorite neighbors?” Most times they don’t even know a single one.There’s a special realness in Richfield which has played a strong role in how I’ve become who I am. I aim to return to it as much as I’ve received and more. I’ve hired, developed, and/or managed hundreds of employees thanks to the start I had here. I’ve had great feedback and input from them and as many peers and clients who are all over the world. I understand people, systems, and personal growth at a level which compels advanced professionals in the medical and fitness world to hire me to coach them. To be able to offer any of this experience back in the form of input as a board member is more than an honor and yet another testament to the outreach of people in this city.
