I have overcome some serious injuries to get where I am. In 2003 I was in a car wreck and had to have emergency open heart surgery to repair a torn Aorta. I was only given a 4% chance to live, and feel very alive with CF! I'm getting more fit every WOD. This is more about where I am now, and comparing that to next year!!
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I try to eat as Macro as possible. I use the zonet. I have a good eye for portion and grams per meal. I am learning better recipies all the time from the CF Journal, and zone websites.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
I workout at CrossFit Cedar Park in Austin,TX!!! I love our box. I like the coaches and everyone that works out there. David Tillman is a Master Programmer. We have some really strong competitors there and they just push me to go harder.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I played many sports all the way into college, but then found a love for Athletic Training and strength and conditioning. I played Basket Ball, Lacrosse, soccer and track. I have a love for the outdoors and hiked and rock climbed. When I was with the National Strength and Conditioning Assoc. I went and studied Oly lifting in China for a month. That was an amazing experience
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 headed toward a crossfit style of training and working out even before I knew what it was. I was a typical lifter/ bodybuilder type, but I had all this knowledge from all the different types of training I had done like NSCA Oly lifting, MMA, Boxing, and sport specific training. I was starting to combine a lot of this when I found CF. That was it I loved it and it kicks my but everyday. There are no limits to CF there is always one more rep, one second faster, one more round.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I usually do 3 traditional CF workouts with high MetCon, and 2 days of Strength work (DL, SQ, Press). I also practice movements and gymnastics before or after WOD's. So I guess I am a 5 on 2off.
