How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Clean most of the time. Real foods...Lots of meat, veggies, sweet potato and white rice, some fruits and nuts. Having an 8 year old & 3 year old in the house makes it harder. If they want M&M's...I want M&M's!

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

I prefer to have somebody else program for me so that I don't deviate from the program. If it's on paper (by somebody else), I have to do it.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Played football and baseball through middle school, and baseball in high school. I became a gym rat at the age of 23 and never really took a break. I took up Jiu Jitsu at the age of 35 for 3 years and then found CrossFit in 2008 at the age of 38. I'm 45 now and don't feel a day older than 44.

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.
