ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

As a kid I played baseball, raced BMX, rode motocross, and trained in self defense martial arts. I let myself go for a while, not doing any of the active things I love. At 30 I decided to make some changes and I walked through the doors at Crossfit Iron Will for the first time. It's fun getting those childhood feelings of athleticism back!

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

In 2009, at 29, I had a bout of food poisoning that led to a prolonged illness, and eventually to an ulcerative colitis diagnosis. After hearing about Paleo through my box, I bought one book after another to immerse myself in Paleo literature. I started slow, but by my June 2011 GI appointment I was UC symptom-free without medication for 7 months, and as of today have been symptom free for 14 months, without meds.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years
