ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

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 writes my programming. I work with Coach Brenden Butler and my training partner Preston Austin 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.

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

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Started CrossFit in May of 2011, started training to compete in December of 2011.
