CrossFit is my lifestyle. I love to help others become healthy & fit through proper nutrition & CrossFit. My purpose is to help others change their lives through action and to honor my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in all that I do. Through Him I find strength. Isaiah 40:31


How I Eat

I weigh and measure my food

I am a firm believer in always eating Zone Balanced portions with a fluctuating fat multiplier with the goal of optimal performance. I eat even blocks throughout the day. I eat some dairy, some starch, and some grains. I take 7.5grams of SFH fish oil daily along with 3fuel recovery drink. I also take creatine, collagen, and a pre-workout at times. I drink amazing amounts of black coffee daily. My new favorite drink is La Croix flavored carbonated water.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

I only workout at my affiliate. I have the greatest group of male & female athletes who push me daily. I have used to record all of my workouts since I started in 2007. My brother & I decide my programming. I typically rest on Thursdays & Sundays. We keep our eyes on programming.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I have been an athlete my whole life. Mostly playing Soccer and Baseball. I enjoy most sports but stuck with those 2. I was the kicker on my high school football team. I played 2 years of baseball at Riverside Community College. Now Crossfit is my sport.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

I have attended one or more specialty courses

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

I train other people

My brother and I, along with some friends of his, started Crossfit in my garage after watching the Movie "300". I was pretty resistant of doing it because I was 235#s with about 30% body fat and WAY out of shape. The rest is history. We run an awesome Affiliate in Upland, California and have sent athletes to the Games every year since our first in 2008. This is just the beginning.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week

I strictly schedule my rest days

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I typically rest on Thursdays minus an active recovery row. I take a full rest day on Sundays.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

I have competed at the CrossFit Games 4x. Last year I went team. This year I have my eyes on Individual and gunning for my 5th trip to the Games. I finished 40th in the Open last year and I am twice the athlete I was last year. I have shored up several critical weaknesses and continue to improve on everything else as well.
