ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Mostly Paleo during the day. Slight deviation at night. Having a 6 year old in the house makes it harder. If she has M&M's...I want M&M's!

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

I write the programming for my affiliate and also for the Competitors WOD. I refer to a couple of sources for my programing and then compile a program that I feel meets the need of myself and my athletes.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Played football and baseball through high school. I became a gym rat at the age of 23 and never really took a break. I took up MMA at the age of 36 for 2 years and then found CrossFit at the age of 38. I'm 43 now and don't feel a day older than 42.

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

I train other people

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Currently 3 on 1 off, 2 on 1 off. My training days are hard. I look forward to the rest days.
