How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat a lot. Tried to measure with blocks but that was way to little food for me.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I record my workouts

99 % of the times I workout at Crossfit Nordic in Stockholm.

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

Did track and field and the 400 m hurdles for more than 15 years. Competed both in Europe and in the U.S. Earned a scholarship to Washington State University, a division I university.

My Experience With CrossFit

I have completed the CrossFit Level 1 certificate course

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

Try to follow 3 on, one off but due to work schedule, traveling and life it's not always possible.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Started with Crossfit on January 3rd, 2011 and have been hooked ever since. I love Crossfit. Part of Team Reebok Sweden:
