ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat a lot of grassfed beef, raw milk, eggs duck and chicken. Try to eat veggies, rice and gluten free breads. Burgers and beer at least once a week.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

Work out a lot, try to do things I suck at. I stay on a strength program 5-6 weeks on and 1 week off.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

wrestling, football, track.

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I think it is the best way to get into shape. I love the people who walk in off the street, and have no clue what is about to happen to them. It can change your life.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I try to rest when I feel wrecked.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years

first day of xfit was 11.1.
