CrossFit has been a very positive development in my life. Love it!
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I have lost 23 lbs since last year's Open. (Shout out to Weight Watchers!) I am an ovo-lacto vegetarian, and try to eat mostly real food, paying lots of attention to protein. I track my food using WW app and that has made the difference for me in learning how to eat. I'm feeling great and hoping I can show gains at the gym.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
I was an active kid and in my teens did some biking but was never very interested in sports.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
As an out of shape adult, an exercise boot camp saved me and was the gateway drug to CrossFit. I started running for the first time in my life. Friends introduced me to an affiliate in my neighborhood. I completed a Level 1 Endurance certification. Peak CrossFit experiences include getting my first unassisted pull up after the age of 50; sumo deadlifting 187 under the coaching of Rudy Nielsen & Laura DeMarco; rope swinging while visiting Urban CrossFit; basking in the afterglow of team workouts with my wonderful peeps at CFRX and volunteering for SE Regionals and for the Games!
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I bike commute 4 miles roundtrip a day/5 days a week. I go to the gym 3-5 days a week.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started going to CrossFit RX in July 2009.
