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

My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
My priorities have shifted over the past year to keeping myself healthy, spending more time developing myself as a remote coach, and spending more time with my family. I still really enjoy training and competing but I am trying to do a good job of keeping everything in perspective.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Started CrossFit in May of 2011 after finding main-site. Dabbled for a couple of weeks, then joined an affiliate.
