Bio

I started CrossFit in Australia and qualified for my first Regionals in 2013. Afterwards I moved back home to Canada where I've become very good at almost making the games. Lol. I spend quite a bit of time chirping Joe Scali and Mitch Barnard on Instagram - @fikowski @scalifit @mitchbarnard

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I have eaten a Paleo-ish diet for many years.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

RAW STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING provides me with my coaching and programming. www.rawstrengthandconditioning.com Can't say enough great things about RAW and how much I have improved with his guidance. Get amongst it!

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I cannot remember a time in my life when I haven't been involved in competitive sports. Most notably I swam from the age of 6 to 18 and I competed in indoor and beach volleyball which I started at the age of 12. I played for the Lethbridge College Kodiaks men's indoor volleyball program. In Australia I played for the Griffith University men's indoor team and I competed on the QLD AA Beach Volleyball tour in 2012. I have been very lucky to have many amazing coaches throughout the years.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I was first introduced to CrossFit by my volleyball coach Ian Bennett and by watching videos of Olympic beach volleyball player Martin Reader. When I moved from Canada to Australia to finish my University degree in 2012 I joined CrossFit Broadbeach. After surprising myself with a top 5 placing at my first individual competition I decided to change my competitive athletic focus to CrossFit.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually train very early in the morning before work. I have scheduled rest days and spend lots of time on a foam roller.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

Proud member of CrossFit BroadBeach Australia from April 2012 until July 2013. I miss my CFBB family and all the amazing times I had with Coach Drew. Lucky to now call the amazing Kelowna CrossFit my new home
