Rev. James Noyes I (born in Wiltshire, England, in 1608; died in Newbury, Massachusetts, 22 October 1656) was an English clergyman who emigrated to Massachusetts. He was a founder of Newbury, Massachusetts. Rev. James Noyes was educated at Oxford, emigrated to Massachusetts in 1634, and after a short service in Medford was pastor of the church in Newbury, Massachusetts from 1635 until his death. He sailed on the ship "Mary & John" of London on the 23rd of March, 1634 with his wife Sarah Noyes and brother Nicholas Noyes. The ship was detained in the River Thames where all passengers signed the oath of allegiance to the King and the church before they were allowed to sail from London.
How I Eat
I eat whatever my wife makes for me. I also enjoy movie theater popcorn, deep dish pizza, and chocolate croissants.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
When I was in college and living in Japan, I would follow a mixture of CrossFit.com and affiliate site workouts. Now that I've moved to Toronto and joined an Reebok CrossFit Liberty Village I work out strictly with them.
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
My friend introduced me to CrossFit, he later became a Level 1 certified coach who runs an affiliate at the high school he teaches at. He would give me pointers whenever we met while I was training on my own.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
3 days on, 1 day off.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
Only 18 months at an affiliate. Before that it was on my own.
