Been Doing CrossFit for almost3 years. Got into it out of necessity from doing MMA and have not stopped since. Been in sports my entire life, anything where u could hit or throw or catch a ball I was into, so it was only natural that I enjoy crossFit so much.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat lots of meat and have tried many new vegitables recently in order to try and make it to regionals and look better. So I stay away from bread and have stopped drinking so much milk to get rid of the sugar.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
. After the 2012 open and regionals I started using a programmer "Uncle Troy" along with assistance from my box owner. Who are certified in USA weightlifting CrossFit kettlebell, coaches prep, pose running, and others to come soon. Along with a doctorate in the medical field to really understand the body and how it works, I went from 67 in 2012 to top 5 this year in the open.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played college sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I will play and have played most any sport I can get my hands on, from fighting to volleyball and I am endlessly competitive at everything I do.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I train other people
I began crossFit almost 3 years ago and liked it so much I wanted to get better and train people the why I had been trained to change the way they think about fitness and being in shape. I am a level one certified coach and have received my endurance certification through CrossFit which drastically improved my running and stamina.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I have evolved my training to be able to train more often to handle the load of competition and to be able to practice more movements in a quicker amount of time.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
