How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I love microbrew and good whiskey. I eat healthy, and a lot.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
David Charbonneau, repeat Games Athlete with Team Dynamix, son of Zeus, King of HSPU, and overall badass writes my programming and makes sure I don't do anything too stupid. I incorporate my own accessory work (when I can get away with it) because I hate having weaknesses. It's not very often. He kicks my ass. I can't say enough about my coach - without him, I don't know where I would be. He genuinely cares for my well being, wants me to succeed, pushes me the perfect amount, and listens to me all the time.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I got my feet wet in the Winter of 2011, but it wasn't until after the 2012 Open finished up that I really started to look at Crossfit intensely. In the Fall of 2012 I started following Stephen Hitt's programming (Crossfit Industrious) and he guided me to my first two trips to Regionals in 2013 and 2014. I changed coaches to David Charbonneau in the summer of 2014 and he has taken me to a whole new level. Look out, world.
