How I Eat

I eat fairly strict Paleo, but I'm not a crazy psycho about it...sometimes you just have to enjoy life.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

I do most of my workouts at my CF gym, but when work keeps me from getting there, I'll venture into a globogym to do some strength and skill I love the looks I get from doing HSPU's in the globo world. Priceless. I also love to practice yoga on a regular's a great counterbalance to the craziness that is Crossfit.

My Athletic Background

I did not grow up playing sports...just beating up the neighborhood boys that tried to bully my little brother. I still enjoy trying to beat up on the boys's just a differnt kind of beating them up...mostly.

My Experience With CrossFit

Short story: I never worked out. I went to grad school and got fat really quick. I decided that sucked. I started running. I lost weight. I started running races while living in Seattle. I moved to Charleston and it was to stinkin' hot to be running all the time. I found Crossfit. I never looked back. I am now (BY FAR) in the best shape of my life. BOOM.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

I strictly schedule my rest days


How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years
