ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

I would say I'm paleo during the week and partially compliant on the weekends.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

4- 5 days a week. Mostly just do the programming we do at our box. Rarely addition WODs or endurance WODs until 3 months before World Games.

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

All-Around Gymnast, All-American Iowa State University, Still Rings 1980.

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 have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I train other people

Best thing that ever happened to me, my family and my friends.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I strictly schedule my rest days

I take 2 or sometimes 3 rest days a week. My rest days are as important as a WOD.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
