Bio

Hi! My name's Melissa Roland, I'm a mom of 2 beautiful kids, and have really loved getting more seriously into Crossfit the past year and a half. I have no other sports background but finally found something I do enjoy :) My other hobbies are music, crocheting, and hiking. I also love Italy and can still parlo a bit.

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I love to cook, and over the past couple years I've learned to cook more healthy. Although I don't do a strict paleo diet, I do avoid wheat and dairy - other grains do hit the table about 1-3 times a week.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

I got a great boost in my abilities by doing programming by my coach - am just now heading back into crossfit classes with some goals under my belt now.

My Athletic Background

I have no athletic background besides CrossFit

The only other sport I've done is a couple seasons of indoor soccer - and I did enjoy it! But discovering Crossfit was the best life-change for me - it gives me something I enjoy, get serious about, and want to compete in.

My Experience With CrossFit

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

My husband had been doing crossfit alone and talked me into giving it a try. After about a year or so of testing the waters, I joined a crossfit gym. And I've never looked back!

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years
