Track and Cross Country in both high school and college. Specialized in the 800m and 1500m at Arizona State.
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 was originally introduced to CrossFit in 2009, but due to my obligation with running, it wasn't a consistent part of my life until the Summer of 2011. Now that running is in the rear view mirror, I've set my sights on CrossFit and I'm loving every minute of it.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Thursdays and Sundays, son. Thursdays and Sundays...
