I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I workout and coach at LAX Crossfit in Los Angeles, CA. My programming is primarily from Cj at Invictus in San Diego.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I started playing soccer when I was 4 and I played college soccer at the U.S. Air Force Academy. I fell in love with CrossFit for the same reason many ex-athletes feeds my competitive side and challenges me in entirely new ways.

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I train other people

I became addicted when I joined my box LAX Crossfit in spring of '12. When I was deployed to Afghanistan Oct '12 - April '13 I had the chance to work out with some incredibly motivated athletes at two different FOBs and Boxes - Kandahar CrossFit and CrossFit Leatherneck. My time there brought me to many firsts - bar muscle up, ring muscle up and countless PRs. It was truly a unique experience to work out there and I will never forget the vibe and people that made it the best box in the worst place! I had the opportunity to compete in Regionals for the Asia region last year and hope to rise to the challenge of the incredible SoCal Region this year.

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I strictly schedule my rest days

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years
