How I Eat

I eat strict Paleo

Well, almost strict if you don't count red wine and lattes.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I usually get in 4 workouts/week at my affiliate. I stay after the WOD to get in some weight work. I also get 2-3 hours of Oly lifting practice every week.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

For 30 years I ran alot. Then I found Cross Fit.

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 had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

Once I started CrossFit I got faster, but CrossFit was too much fun. I run a lot less, but I'm still as fast. I now have an upper body and better, I have a community of people I love to be with.

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 go to my box 5 days during the week. I go to Oly lifting training one day.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years
