I am an assistant coach at CrossFit King of Prussia. I have L1, Olympic Lifting, Coaches Prep, Goal Setting and Kids. I will get my USAW L1 in March 2013. I am a board member and coach for our Steve's Club Chapter. I am also a life coach. I work with women on body image issues and I work with athletes wanting to improve their mental game. I also do a workshop for local affiliates, called 5th Element Fitness. It is designed to help athletes integrate mind and body in order to reach potential in the gym and in life. I am also a contracted writer for the CrossFit Games site (http://games.crossfit.com/search/site/stephanie%20vincent) and the CrossFit Community Site (http://community.crossfit.com/search/site/stephanie%20vincent).

How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I believe in intuitive eating. I use my body's cues like hunger and satiety as a guide. I pay attention to how foods make me feel- and that helps me make a choice as to whether I want to eat them. When i eat something off plan, I consciously choose to do so- and allow myself to enjoy it fully wether its for taste, comfort or socialization.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I record my workouts
I am currently training to do an olympic lifting competition. I do 3-4 Strength/Oly Lifting Sessions per week. In addition I try to hit atleast 2 CrossFit Metcoms per week along with 1-2 yoga and/or gymnastics classes.
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
When I started CrossFit I had zero experience with sports or fitness (beside a few attempts at convential exersize to lose weight). I was the fat kid as long as I can remember.
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 attended one or more specialty courses
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
When I started it took a leap of faith. I could do nothing RX. Simply getting though the workout was an accomplishment. I lost 100lbs and gained a relationship with my body i never would have thought was possible. I am now an assitance coach at my affilate and am highly involved in our kids programs. I have attended the Olympic Lifting, Kids, Goal Setting and Coaches Prep Course. I'm getting my USAW L1 in March.
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
