ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat 1-3 full cheat meals per week

I eat pretty well, but I often treat myself with chocolate and cookies.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I record my workouts

I record my workouts each day and detail where things hurt and keep notes for next time. I track all of my lifting which has recently started to pick up even though the numbers are still not quite there.

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I played professional sports

Soccer in England until I was 19, then semi-pro in England until I was 24 and moved over to the States

My Experience With CrossFit

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

I have had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

Crossfit is just tops, there's nothing else that can leave you so spent and in pain and yet you want more. I've played a lot of sports at some pretty high-levels and I've seen nothing like the camaraderie that Crossfitters have between them, the sense of community and the feeling of belonging you get no matter which affiliate, which day of the week, in whatever country. This truly is the sport of the masses and yet still remains the sport of the future.

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

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years
