How I Eat

I eat whatever is convenient

I'm on the road on avg 3+ weeks per month. I do the best I can at airports and small towns.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I show up when I'm in town and do whatever is on the board. If I have time while on the road I visit other affiliates but that is rare anymore. I generally only workout every other week.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I regularly play recreational sports

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

My Work/Rest Schedule

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

There wasn't an option for "I do workouts 3x per week and take every other week off"

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Began in Aug 2009. Ruptured Achilles tendon Feb 2011 so I obviously took that year off.
