ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

Trying hard to eat strict Paleo, but find the weekends are difficult to keep this plan going.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I record my workouts

I work out at the best Affiliate in the world - Eugene CrossFit!

My Athletic Background

I have no athletic background besides CrossFit

Ran three half marathons between ages 36-39 - was in the worst shape of my life. High blood pressure, depression, stress fracture from running so much - CrossFit saved me!

My Experience With CrossFit

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I train other people

CrossFit and Whole30 have changed my life in so many ways it is hard to describe.

My Work/Rest Schedule

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

Also do two Oly Weightlifting classes per week

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

I will do CrossFit until the day I die.
