Athlete: Sheila Barden
How I Eat
I eat when I'm hungry, which happens to be all the time, and I eat a lot. Just trying to upgrade my wardrobe to medium.
How I Train
I snatch and I row. Sometimes I swim. I walk my dog a lot. I practice posing for the photos my twinnies and training partners take of me. #threeamigos Josh Mezzo creates all of my programming, pushes me past my physical and mental limits and has turned me into the best little Sheila I can be. I owe my life and then some to #JMStrength.
My Athletic Background
Tackle Football. That's right, I played on an all boys team, and I was a captain. What of it? I've won a dodgeball championship or two in my life as well.
My Experience With CrossFit
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
My CrossFit experience began with tire flips, kettlebell swings and burpees at CrossFit DeWitt on October 3, 2011. It took one scaled WOD, one pissed off Sheila when I was cut off at three rounds instead of five, and a few select words with the coach at the end of the day for me to know I was hooked.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do everything in my life hard and fast. Sometimes my coach, Commissioner, tells me I WOD too much and cuts me off... Oops, my bad. Life is hard when you're a CrossFit addict. #JMStrength
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started CrossFit October 3, 2011 at Crossfit Dewitt and I've never looked back.
