How I Eat

I weigh and measure my food

I heart exercise science (though I like to think our ancestors were like the Spartans in 300 - but Anthropology is a buzz kill).

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

AM crew with Jay Bernardo and the super, world famous Sage Mertz (Coach B's daughter) and sometimes with the future world champion at everything, Mike Mertz (currently 2 and world champion at cuteness, most ballin' ground-to-overheads and self-motivation). We do Invictus and for some odd (or sick) reason I love EMOMs.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Nothing exciting. I played little league baseball until I was 14. I "played" high school football for 2 years and rowed for the last 2 years (hurray). Military shenanigans followed high school (was deep sea for 7ish years yo).

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

My story is like game of thrones of crossfit gyms of Hawaii (seriously - the character that best describes me is Dondarrion - that's the one that's just 'ok' and won't die/go away).

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

One-a-day is PLENTY for Invictus, thanks. Optional portions are not observed (nor is the 'active' in rest).

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Inspired by thinking I could beat comment #63 on's 12/27/08 (thanks OPT). Before attempting I felt like comment #35 ("something for me to look forward to tomorrow :)" and then it quickly escalated to comment #1 ("OH NO, I'm going to die").
