How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat mostly Paleo, but allow myself to have 1-2 cheat items per week.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

I follow CrossFit Billings WODS when I am able to workout with others and then do strength and skill work on my own and incorporate other WODS addressing my weaknesses.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I regularly play recreational sports

I ski raced for Montana State University and now I love to telemark ski recreationally. I participate in road and trail running races and do triathlons.

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 LOVE CrossFit and how it has changed my workout routine and my life!

My Work/Rest Schedule

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

I typically rest fewer than 4 days per month

I rest when my body feels like it needs a rest day. Not a big believer in doing "nothing" for rest days and prefer to do active, hike, run, bike, or swim.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Wish I would have started sooner!
