Athlete: Amanda Fillers
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat clean for the most part. My body decided a long time ago what I can and can not eat. I stick to chicken, fish, salad, oatmeal, fruit, and boiled eggs pretty much. I drink water 95% of the time. Starbuck's is my weakness when I am in America.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
In Afghanistan I workout at a CF affiliate. I am new to CF, so in America, I do not have a CF gym yet. I do train MMA, MT, and BJJ though at home, and my coaches there determine my workout program.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Mixed Martial Arts at least 6 days a week, when I am home in America. My goal when I get home will be how to continue my training and incorporate CrossFit.
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 attended one or more specialty courses
I train other people
I started CrossFit while in Afghanistan. I had already been in country for 6 months, when I finally got the nerve up to go in. I am in love with it!
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I typically rest fewer than 4 days per month
I spend about 27 hours a week in my gym at home, so I'm definitely going to have to shift things around to fit CF in when I go back. I am not good at taking a rest day, which I know is bad; however, if I don't work out my mood sucks!
