ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat whatever is convenient

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

Cook quality foods whenever possible, but do cheat a few times. Chipotle, Peanut Butter, and sandwiches.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym

Train at Crossfit Progression 3-4 times a week. Log a lot of miles running, meters in the pool, and body weight movements (Push-ups and pull ups).

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

My Experience With CrossFit

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

Started training with a buddy from work who was an Army Ranger. While he was preparing for another deployment, I need to find a way to match the same intensity. That was when I found Crossfit, thanks in part to a former roommate in college.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years
