I first stumbled across CrossFit in 2007 while I was a PTI in the Air Force and dabbled with it for a while before committing to it 100%. I competed at Regionals in 2010-2011-2012 before the rest of the field got too good for me to keep up! I am now pretty much the Kenny Powers of CrossFit. I own Coastal CrossFit Queensland with my wife Marie - our affiliate is now in it's 8th year.
How I Eat
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I suppose you could say I eat paleo + dairy. Sometimes I drink beer, lots of beer.
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I write my own programming
I record my workouts
I follow the workout of the day for our gym (Coastal CrossFit) and nowadays train mostly for general fitness and enjoyment.
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
Been doing CrossFit since 2007. It still keeps ticking the boxes for me even after all this time.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I found CrossFit in 2007 and cherry picked the WOD's that I liked in combination with a typical bodybuilding weight regime until I realised that this was stupid. I have wholly done CrossFit since then and at 36 years old continue to improve in all areas.
