Bio

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 weigh and measure once in a while to recalibrate my eye for what "1/4 pound of beef" or "1/2lb of sweet potato" looks like. From there I control and balance, but don't measure, the amount I eat.

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

Paradiso CrossFit Outlaws

My Athletic Background

I played college sports

Inside Lacrosse MCLA Player of the Year 2012 3x All American and 2x Scholar Athlete

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 had a life changing experience due to CrossFit

CrossFit took my fitness to another level, and then I started to see its flaws. So, I did what any problem solver would do and decided to become a coach to fix its flaws.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I usually only do 1 workout a day

I typically rest 4 or more days per month

I do outlaw programming and walk/bike everywhere plus prioritize surf when the swell is around.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

4+ years

On and off, but I started in 2009 using CrossFit as preseason strength & conditioning for lacrosse, eventually creating my own programming after my L1 cert in 2010.
