Athlete: Dan Carmody
How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
I eat modified Paleo (milk added) with a few cheat meals per week. I don't measure amounts, just eat as much as I need.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I workout with the awesome people at Lynnwood Crossfit, especially the devious Drew Barquist!
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
I spent the better part of my life actively avoiding sports and fitness. I finally decided that I was unhappy with the way I was, so I jumped into CrossFit with both feet. Haven't looked back. :)
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
CrossFit has completely changed the way that I look at myself. Before I started, I didn't know how far I could push myself or how much I can do. I now have a much better idea of just how strong I am and how much I can endure. Even then, I still don't think that I've reached my limits, or that I ever will!
My Work/Rest Schedule
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I do one workout, three days a week with distance running on my "off" days and a full rest day once a week.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started in January 2012
