Married father of 3, firefighter for 27 years, CrossFitting for 7+ years and love it. Live on an island 20 mins from Seattle with no box easily available so my WODs are done either at work or at home. Been to the Games twice and participated in the Regionals prior to that. Each competition has been a wonderful experience and look forward to trying to get back. One of the few who willingly display all their work by video and subject themselves to the critiques of the masses. Love the fun of competition and the joy of movement. Love the way this sport allows everyone to participate. Most of all I appreciate the many friends around the world that I have been introduced to by this sport. There is nothing that compares. Good luck to everyone!


How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 80%+ Paleo and trying to increase that percentage.

How I Train

I workout mostly at home, work, or a traditional gym

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

No box available so train alone at work and home.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Wrestler and football in high school.

My Experience With CrossFit

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

A friend at work in the fire department got me involved in CrossFit and fell in love with it. It has allowed me to keep up with the "kids" I work with and remain an active line firefighter beyond the age that many retire or go out with a disability.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I go by feel. Tired I rest but enjoy multiple WODs sometimes take two or three (Metcon, strength, and metcon) and break them up with 5-15 mins rest periods or AM/PM. Not uncommon to squeeze in a WOD after midnight.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Long enough that I don't remember exactly when I started (or that may just be the Alzhiemer's).
