Youngin' down at the University of Miami. WOD out of Peak 360 CrossFit and set on winning the CrossFit Games within the next couple years. Getting there with hard work day by day. Working out with Guido Trinidad, Chase Daniels, and some of the other big dogs in the Southeast helps.


How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Tried paleo, zone, all of the above. As a college student, I just eat as healthy as possible to support my activity level. Milk!

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

I workout of Peak 360 CrossFit in Miami. Coached by Dusty Hyland of Dogtown CrossFit and record all of my WODs on my instagram @nohlsen and at

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

Grew up playing everything, but lacrosse was my main sport until highschool where I picked up wresting my freshman year. After a shoulder injury I tried out swimming and ended up and the swimming and water polo team captain senior year. Played water polo at the collegiate level at both Clemson and the University of Miami, until I finally found MY sport: CrossFit.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I train other people

Fell in love with everything about the sport over 3 years ago and I currently train, compete, and teach CrossFit all around South Florida.

My Work/Rest Schedule

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

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I try to workout at least 5 days a week and lately it's been pretty high volume, starting with strength, with conditioning and skill work. Rest when needed.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Don't plan on ever stopping!
