How I Train

I do the workout on the whiteboard, and I add in my own skill work if I have time and want to work on something. I program my own running/paddling/xc skiing/swimming. For 10 months out of the year, I squat a lot in pursuit of building up my kayaker legs. This goal still eludes me.

My Athletic Background

5-time US National Kayak Team member from 2004-2011. High school nordic ski racing. Marathon canoe racing.

My Experience With CrossFit

My kayak career was rife with nagging shoulder and back injuries. I started CrossFit in 2010 as an alternative strength and conditioning program leading up to the 2012 Olympic Trials. CrossFit was so fun that I put kayaking on the back burner, got my L1 and my USAW, started coaching, went to Regionals in 2013, and lived the dream for two years. Now I manage a company that helps gyms with their merchandise orders. And I exercise with my friends.

My Work/Rest Schedule

While I love heaving barbells, they will never take the place of fresh air and sunshine. This year I'm spending less time in the gym and more time outside.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
