Weak and very asthmatic growing up, yet a decent athlete. Played and loved high school football. Stayed in decent shape in adulthood with running and globo gym type weight lifting. Found crossfit late 2006. Did for several years at Bally's, with people staring at us. At the time, there was one crossfit gym in Houston area, about an hour away. Was going to open up a gym, but found Atomic Crossfit close by. Great community and great coaching staff. CrossFit has greatly enriched my life,.. not just total fitness but mental fitness and toughness too. Ultimately, it's made me a better person in all aspects of my life, and continues to foster growth in all areas.


How I Eat

I weigh and measure my food

I eat strict Paleo

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

My eatting fluctuates. If the scale battery goes out, it may be months before I replace it. If a certain someone is pregnant I follow her right into eating crazy land. Generally I eat Paleo/Zone with some fats replacing carb blocks.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

Atomic Crossfit

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

Pretty consistent since 2006, continuous progress. My enthusiasm and love for it has only grown too. Overall makes me a better and better person.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Usually about 4 wods a week, sometimes 5.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

I believe Oct. of 2006 is when I started. Did it at Bally's. Only 1 box in Houston area at the time-- Champions Crossfit. Too far for me.
