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 six years.
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
Got a bit excited about training again after last year's open and have been training hard since then. Been following Invictus since last July as I tend to over-think my own programming too much.
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 do multiple workouts in a day 2x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Was training 2x day for a good portion of the last year. Pretty much 1x day at the moment leading up to the Open. I typically rest Thursday and Sunday.
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 35 years old continue to improve in all areas.
