I'm quirky and love CF. I started my CF athletic journey in 2006 and have loved every painful minute since. I own and am head coach of CF Invoke (crossfitinvoke.com) I am a Head Trainer for CFHQ for the Level 1 Seminars. I'm venturing into the world of NASCAR as a front tire changer...a whole new world. I have an English Bulldog named Fran. Favorite WODs: Nasty Girls, Fran, Helen, Nancy....in no particular order. They are all amazing.
How I Eat
I weigh and measure my food
I eat strict Paleo
Clean eating and listening to my body. Not always 100% Paleo bc I'm human.
How I Train
