I am a current student at MTSU pursuing a degree in Biochemistry and planning on doing Physical Therapy school after my bachelors. I spent 8 years in the Marines where I served two deployments to Iraq. I love to workout and see other people succeed in their personal fitness goals. Eventually I want to be able to further help others as they aspire to become great athletes.

My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
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 was first introduced to Crossfit back in 2007 at my Marine unit. A local affiliate came out and showed our company the basics and ran through some workouts with us. I tried to plan similar workouts into my own routine for about a year after that. I finally started going to an actual box last year and I wish I would have found it sooner. I have been a coach at my affiliate for about a year now.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Took about a 6 month break due to injury and slowly getting back to things.
