ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat as healthy as I can over here in Afghanistan. Ice Cream is my one cheat food daily. I prefer more of the zone over paleo.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts

I write my own programming

I workout at Crossfit Leatherneck out here. When I am at a PB I do my own programming. I often do 4 on 1 or 2 off. It also depends on the operation schedule. Currently I am doing 2 - 3 on and 1 off. My deployment has sort of taken away from my training schedule. In California I workout at Crossfit Darkhorse and I am usually there on the weekends. I program myself Monday through Friday.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I regularly play recreational sports

I come from a football,baseball and track backround.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I train other people

Started out getting introduced to it in the military during a course. In 2010 after a deployment on the 31st MEU, became hooked and did my best to teach myself. Did not join a gym until May 2011.

My Work/Rest Schedule

Varies..

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
