I've been Crossfitting consistently for nearly two years. I started out doing it twice a week to supplement my circus aerial training and ended up loving it! I gradually moved to three times a week and since January 2013, I've been working out five days a week with an occasional weekend workout thrown in for fun. I didn't include most of the benchmarks as for some reason a lot of my scores are really, really old. Gotta get on that! ^_^
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat whatever is convenient
I completed our box's Paleo challenge and felt so good that I'm planning on going back to it. I was disrupted by Army food for 2 weeks, though.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I also do ruck marches every week or every other week for military stuff.
My Athletic Background
I regularly play recreational sports
There isn't a section for weird individual sports like dance, trapeze and other circus skills, otherwise I'd check off that section!
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
Being a Crossfitter has improved every aspect of my life, quite dramatically. I am very happy with myself and my body, and my confidence has skyrocketed. I was a chronic "runner-up" in my classes and jobs - close enough for glory, but never enough belief to win it. Since I started CrossFit, I have been able to compete and win successfully at things that aren't even CrossFit related. In a nutshell, CrossFit taught me to work consistently, never say I cannot, and accomplish the unimaginable.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I do not schedule rest days - I listen to what my body says!
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
First at CrossFit Fenway <3 and now at CrossFit Bridgewater!
