ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

Recovering gluten addict. Good w/o sugar. Love the grass fed beefs. Some sweet potato and tuber intake for HP during WOD's.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

My Athletic Background

I have no athletic background besides CrossFit

I was a buck-fifteen through High School so the only sport I played was golf and by most standards that doesn't count. Other than that, I like a nice mountain bike ride, a game of tennis against someone much older than me, or some ping-pong.

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

Started this whole thing in earnest in February of 2013. Dropped twenty pounds and a few waist sizes and feel better than I have in a long, long time.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I believe in scheduling rest days, otherwise I don't take them. In the past I've had streaks of 10-12 days in a row which just isn't good for my body. Still, when class time rolls around, it's hard to not suit up.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

6-12 months
