Bio

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I weigh and measure my food

Couldn't quite click "eat strict Paleo"...I mean, does anyone:).

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts

I record my workouts

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

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

I first tried CrossFit with my co-worker (who is now my husband!) about 5 years ago. After a year I discovered that I had turned away from my passion for coaching too soon with the thought I needed to pursue a mainstream career. We began our affiliate out of our 1 car garage where we trained 4 athletes until we moved to a designated space. Four years and 10,000 square feet later we have found a way to mix labor and love for life.

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

Rest is how you get better.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years
