How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I only workout at CrossFit Foothill. I love the competition of the clock and encouragement of teammates doing the WOD.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

Prior to Crossfit I had no experience with weights and had little muscle tone. I'm amazed at how much more weight I can lift 2 years later, but I always want to do more!

My Experience With CrossFit

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

The coaching I receive from all the fantastic coaches at Crossfit Foothill is amazing. They motivate me to do more, faster and encourage me to do things I didn't think I could do. The coaches push me to perform yet they know my limitations and scale the weight to my skills. I focus on executing the technique and pushing myself. I rely on my coaches expertise to guide me to excel to my best performance in each WOD.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I workout M-F doing the gym WOD. After the WOD I work on an element I'm trying to improve. I do the Saturday team WOD as my schedule permits

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

My goal for 2014 is make the top 200 masters and get the opportunity to do the additional WODs in April. I placed 87th in the world in the Open (last year 633) earning the opportunity to do the four Master Qualifier WODs. I finished 23rd in the world and finally got to showcase my muscle-ups in competition! I'm so proud of all the masters women! You inspire me to do more, faster and heavier! I exceed my 2014 Open goals, but not my expectations of myself. I have 11 months to work on strength and long sets! Thanks to all the coaches and members at CFF for their support and encouragement. Go CrossFit Foothill!
