My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I played everything at school. Always made the teams but was never a standout player. Out of school I played soccer and field hockey and volleyball, ran, completed some triathalons. When my kids were little I started them in karate. They trained for a few years. I stuck around and hold a 2nd degree black belt in Shotokan Karate.

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 guess it really is a life changing experience. Starting Crossfit June 2009 and working with my Naturopath on my diet weighing in at 260 lbs was the beginning of a journey that has brought me here.

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

My workload depends on the week.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
