How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I follow a Paleo for athletes diet when preparing for competition. When not prepping for a competition I struggle with dieting.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I write my own programming

I record my workouts

I workout exclusively at CrossFit Now with some badass athletes. I program the daily workouts and Chris DeRosa programs the competitor workouts during two a days.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

High School Football.

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 train other people

I earned my level 1 in May 2010. I've attended The CrossFit Running and Endurance cert, Pose Running cert, and the CrossFit Mobilty cert. I'm also a certified LE PT and DT instructor. I train a bunch of badasses at CrossFit Now.

My Work/Rest Schedule

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

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I learned a lot about rest last year, I didn't get any. This year rest is prioritized above training. So far so good.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

Since January 2009!
