Athlete: Kyle Ruth
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat whatever is convenient
My biggest struggle is getting ENOUGH food to support my training. I also have a sweet tooth and eat lots of cookies.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
Coach Max El-Hag (Training Think Tank) writes my programming. I work with Coach Brenden Butler and my training partner Preston Austin and Jason Reutter on-site.
My Athletic Background
I played college sports
I swam competitively for 14 years, including two years as a Div I college swimmer. I have placed as high as 16th at US Nationals, qualified for World Championship Trials, and set numerous Indiana State records. During my swimming career I also dabbled in power lifting and spent a ridiculous amount of time on plyometrics in an effort to develop explosiveness. Still love the sport of swimming, however I realized at about 26 that I had made it about as far as I could go in the sport without more coaching & support.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course
I have attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people

I like rest.
