How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym
I have a coach who determines my programming
I do gymnastics 4-5 days a week for 4-5 hours a day. I go to CrossFit in the mornings whenever I can. When I have had a crazy day and had no time to get a workout in I go to 24 Hour Fitness. I tend to be very active and don't like sitting down doing nothing. I always have to be getting something productive down.
