Entering his second Open, Rick Jeffries, known as "OG" (Old Guy) on his home gym's whiteboard, is the darling of the over-40, over-275 class at CrossFit Fit Farm in Omaha. That category currently has no other members, and OG is expected to dominate his division once again. OG shocked the world in 2013 by performing his first double-under in the Open. Sadly, he did the workout at a gym 300 miles from home, so nobody believed it until he repeated the feat six months later. A father, instrument of peace, hockey fan, unlikely bicycle sprint master, and retired house party DJ, OG owes what he honestly considers a level of fitness of which had never dreamed to his coaches Tony Schuster, Justin "J-Sides" Sides, and his incredibly patient 1x1 coach, the incomparably-bearded Kyle O'Neil.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
I draw the line at cheese, bitches.
