|Back Squat||156 kg|
I started CrossFit in 2007 and have been to regionals 3 times. I am now pretty much the Kenny Powers of CrossFit. I own Coastal CrossFit Queensland with my wife Marie - our affiliate has been open for five years.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat good food to the point of satisfaction when I'm hungry. I am not so strict with my diet that I won't eat the curly fries at Hog's Breath and don't mind have a beer or three on the weekend.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I mostly train once a day and I try to hit the motocross track twice a week. I enjoy the daily competition within my own gym and am more focused on the athletes that I train these days.
My Athletic Background
I have no athletic background besides CrossFit
I have no formal athletic background. I grew up riding motocross bikes for fun and never really did spectacularly at anything.
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
I have enjoyed being part of CrossFit since the early days in Australia. I have learned very much through the process of running my own affiliate for 5 years and will continue to learn and try to be a better coach.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I follow the daily workout on www.coastalcrossfit.com.au with a bit of extra work for fun.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
