Athlete: Nick Charnley
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
90%+ paleo with maybe one cheat meal per week and a weakness for wine.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
Train at CF Basel three times a week, doing a mixture of regular WODs and powerlifting classes. I top up my training in my garage or at the crappy fitness centre at work .... but it has a squat rack and proper powerlifting bar!
My Athletic Background
I regularly play recreational sports
Used to be a reasonable climber and still play around on boulders and big mountains. It's been over 30 years since I won an egg and spoon race at school but the taste of victory still lingers.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
Started on my own, then a few mates joined me. Built up our own box from nothing, by begging, stealing and borrowing kit from the military, scrap yards and abusing the APO system (yes, they will deliver 24 kg kettlebells to the Middle East).
