How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 90% Paleo with occasional cheese and other dairy foods. I don't have set cheat days because I don't crave junk food much anymore but I do not deprive myself when I do feel like eating a cheat meal. Generally I eat about 6times a day including my protein and recovery shakes.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I incorporate workouts

I stick to Cape CrossFit programming which I do 6x week. In between I have active rest days which include rock climbing, hikes or swimming of some sort.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I regularly play recreational sports

Sports, fitness and being active has been part of my life since I was a kid, I started with Kung Fu, swim team in high school, Kick Boxing in college and I used to spend a lot of my time in the gym.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

CrossFit has become a way of life for me. CrossFit challenges me on every level - competitively, physically, mentally and socially. The community has become an extension of my family and has improved my quality of life as a whole!

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I usually train 3 days on 1 day off - Mostly doing 1 wod in a day. I am trying to focus on doing more mobility stuff at the moment.
