Athlete: Nicholas Prappas
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
Weekdays are pretty much Paleo, and weekends are cheat days. But I don't cheat all day. I still try to eat quality if possible.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
Urban WarFit Crossfit coach Rob Pyfer has created a very strict competitor style workout program for the entire gym.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I have a wide range of athletic capabilities ranging from Basketball, baseball, volleyball, and recreational football.
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
After being extremely athletic in my youth, I found myself falling into the lame day to day gym routine. I found myself losing that spark that I need in my life. Then I found crossfit. After that, everything changed. I found my competitive spirit, and that gave me a whole new drive in my life. I always like working harder and getting better at whatever I'm doing. And this is an arena that I can constantly evolve in.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Monday through Friday on. Saturday & Sunday off. I'll go to a Saturday class if my schedule permits it.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Best year of my life!
