Started CrossFit in 2008. Been an instructor since January of 2009. Opened CrossFit Boynton Beach in January 2011. Competed in first CrossFit event at the 2009 SE Regionals....before there were really any local events. Placed 10th in the World at the 2013 CrossFit Games 40-44 Masters Division. I've seen the sport grow into the unimaginable. I'm proud to be a part of this life changing sport.
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

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.
