My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I grew up playing Soccer competitively; then played club soccer in college. I ending up tearing my ACL and looking for something different to help with rehab and found a kettlebell class which led me to CrossFit. I started playing tennis regularly about a year ago.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
A barbell, some dumbbells, soccer ball filled with sand, and a playground was my gym for about a year.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I have been fighting injuries since last year. I hope to give everything I can to help my team make it to regionals. Then it's double knee surgery!
