How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Don't forget the mint shake once a week from Cold Stone... totally necessary.

How I Train

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

Getting some help with my programming is one of the best things I could have done... don't think, just do.

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

D1 Wrestler

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

So lucky to have been a part of it from some of the earlier years in CrossFit. Amazing to see the growth and how it has benefitted so many 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

Gotta have recovery if you want to have intensity. Gotta have intensity if you want to see results.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Started in the fall of 06'
