How I Eat

I eat strict Paleo

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

Pretty much strict Paleo.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I incorporate workouts

I write my own programming

My programming is done by Competitors Factory at Programming by athletes for athletes.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I regularly play recreational sports

Played baseball at East Tennessee State. I got into a bunch of stuff after baseball and before CrossFit such as natural bodybuilding, MMA, strongman, table tennis, and so on. Lets just say I'm very thankful I stumbled onto CrossFit.

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

I train other people

I began coaching shortly after I started CrossFit and have been fortunate enough to just open my own box (CrossFit West Cobb) as of January 25th 2013. Without CrossFit I'm not really sure what I would be doing right now but I am sure it wouldn't have had the impact that CrossFit has had on my life. I love to workout and love to coach even more.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

I strictly schedule my rest days

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

I have been doing Crossfit since December of 2011 and haven't looked back.
