Stephanie trains for margaritas - we all have to have a vice and for this girl it is chilled tequila and lime. If laughter were a competition Stephanie would be the fittest on Earth. Stephanie can throw around some weights, complete one pull-up (when no one is looking), and has never met a rope she wanted to climb. If you ever find yourself lucky enough to workout with Stephanie you are in for a treat - life is supposed to be fun and that is Stephanie's motto.


How I Eat

I eat whatever is convenient

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

I stock my fridge with paleo goodies - I feel better when I eat clean so yeah, that is what I try to do. If I had a live-in chef I am sure I would be better...

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I walk the block and a half to Crossfit Beltline and then complete whatever workout they have decided to have us all enjoy that afternoon. Then there's that pesky fall marathon I run every year so come spring I have to step it up - after all, there's a Marine at the end of those 26.2 miles waiting for me.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I swam with University of Miami for two whole weeks - then I decided that waking up at 5am to swim wasn't my idea of fun...

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

I showed up to CrossfitRx and signed up for a membership before I ever tried Crossfit. They were a cool bunch over there but when Crossfit Beltline opened close to home I jumped gyms. I train with a bunch of really rad athletes and sometimes I beat them - those are the days when I am awesome. #iwannabelikemike

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Rest is as important as margaritas, or so I've been told. I try to workout four times a week, if there are shirtless men there I will (and do) show up more often. (There should be a "no shirt" rule for all the men at all gyms - when I am president that will be my mission, followed by world peace)

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years

I guess I drank the Kool-aid....and I liked it. #drinkdrankdrunkthekoolaid
