Bio

2012 was tough. Ended up really sick in December through to January, wasn't going to do the games - but screw it - it's go time. My upper body is weak (but I'm working on it slowly), I love deadlifts and rowing (and more rowing).

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

Eat great quality food 90% of the time, love to cook, keep it simple with what ingredients I use. Really just focus on eating in a manner that makes me feel full of energy and lets me push forward in living the best life I can.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I workout at Crossfit AI most of the time, here and there at goodlife. I work from home so sometimes I'll go into the garage and bust out a body weight or dumbbell WoD if I don't have the time to go to the gym. I try to do something every day.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I regularly play recreational sports

Was a biathlete as a kid. Loved it, definitely gave me some mental conditioning in terms of approaching difficult tasks. Love to run, love to row, love to hike, love mountain biking. I might be the bigger guy there, but I push myself every time I come out.

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)

It worked for me and really went well with my general mentality to life.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

Rest when I am tired. Listen to my body. Lately I've been focusing on technique and not time. Every rep done right.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

1-2 years
