I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I like to eat as clean as I can, but avocado, red meats and coffee have my heart.

I am a KIM BARBELL Athlete for both weightlifting and CrossFit. I have my own weightlifting program and then have a separate CrossFit program. Follow my training progress on my team's instagram (@bradfordkim).

In addition to CrossFit, I compete in weightlifting. 2016 USA Weightlifting National Championships - 10th Place In college, I played Softball. Position: outfeild, Lead off left hand hitter

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 began Crossfit as a outlet for my energy when I graduated College. I then went on to get my level 1, so I could help others with Crossfit.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

This year I have been playing catch up due to having my baby in may 2015, so training has been a grind.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
