How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

My day typically consists of: warm-up, stretch, gymnastics tech, strength, 2 WODs followed by core work. I wish I had time to do more!

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

I played professional sports

I was a competitive gymnast for the majority of my childhood and teens. After gymnastics, I did power cheerleading for 6 years. This includes competing on an All-Star team, for my University and on Team Canada.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I train other people

Like so many former gymnasts, I was searching for a sport that could challenge me. I did a 1/2 'Cindy' my first day at CF Waterloo and could barely fasten a seat belt for a week. That was enough for me to fall in love with the sport.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years
