ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat strict Paleo

I don't know if I would use the word "Strict," but I am very careful about what I eat and do my best with juggling my busy schedule.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I can only train at my box about 3-4 times a week. The other days, I train in my garage which I made into a gym. I have all the necessary equipment in my garage to do pretty much any crossfit workout.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I have played sports my whole life. From cross country, basketball, softball, to track. I earned a basketball scholarship to the University of San Francisco.

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I started Crossfit in 2011 and had a year off during this time to have my second baby boy.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

I typically rest fewer than 4 days per month

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I like to train 5-6 days a week with one day off a week. Wish I had more time to do mulitiple workouts in one day but am just too busy.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

Less than 6 months

1-2 years
