Athlete: Aaron Shaffer
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week
Mostly (~95% paleo) near Zone proportions, often with higher fat. I drink 2 gallons of raw milk / wk.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming

My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
In high school I ran cross country, track (800m, 1600m), and played basketball. After graduating I did almost nothing for 6 years while I was a college student (bad idea) until I started exploring CrossFit in 2007.
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 have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit
I train other people
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I go as often as I can, taking rest days as-needed. This is usually a 2-on 1-off or 3-on 1-off schedule. I will occasionally do 2 WODs/day but not often.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
