How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I stick to an organic, whole food diet, based on Paleo principals. I do almost all of my own cooking. I love grass fed beef, butternut squash, avocados, and a big ass plate of pasta every once in a while. I avoid fruit juice and sugar at all costs. I am gluten free, I don't eat soy or dairy products, and I am as GMO free as possible. I supplement with multi-vitamins, recovery shakes, and alkaline water. I love blueberry muffins more than anything. It is my biggest weakness (besides the booze).
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
I consistently 4-5 programmed WODs a week. I try to do extra work at least 3x a week, which consists of 45mins trying to improve upon my weaknesses. I enjoy competition, but, I listen to my body. I set monthly goals and record all my improvements. I also watch a lot of videos and lectures on the interwebs.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I regularly play recreational sports
I played tailback at Highland Park High School in Dallas, TX. I was a Captain my Sr. year. I was recruited to play college sports. However, I had bad knees, and because I sustained several concussions, I regretfully passed on a college football career. Now, ten years later, I have found CrossFit and haven’t looked back! I also played soccer, ice hockey, lacrosse, and I wrestled.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
The first day of the 2013 CrossFit Games was my first day at CrossFit EADO. After my first workout, I went on a YouTube bender, isolating for two weeks, obsessing over CrossFit videos that explored movements, nutrition, community and excellence. I trust my coaches, I love my community, and I try to be an advocate for the sport, where ever I go.
