How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat pretty healthily. Always have to an extent but having started CrossFit I have seen the benefits of strict dieting and supplementing!

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have trained all my life between swimming, rugby and gym but now I souly CrossFit at my local affiliate Reebok CrossFit Northern Ireland

My Athletic Background

I played youth or high school level sports

I played college sports

I regularly play recreational sports

I started swimming at my local club from the age of 4-19. I represented my School at regional and national levels as well as working as a lifeguard during college for 5/6 years. Started playing Rugby from the age of 10 at my local club and throughout 18 years I have achieved a number of league, cup, regional, national and world titles/victories. I played hooker or back row for a semi professional Irish team for 8 seasons and represented my region at U19 and College level. Due to injury, work and a new lifestyle in CrossFit, I decided it was enough for me and now doing CrossFit full time and do not regret it one bit!

My Experience With CrossFit

I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)

My experience with CrossFit so far has been very positive. I am achieving goals a lot quicker than I would have if I was at a normal gym and I am always continuing to improve.

My Work/Rest Schedule

I do multiple workouts in a day 3+ times a week

I would train 5-6 times a week and I manage this between work and social life. I am a professional engineer so my time is very precious!

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Started CrossFit in my local gym (DW Fitness) January 2012. I quickly realised that I was not getting the full benefit of the movements and circuits in a public open gym. I then sought out RCFNI and took the plunge. Haven't looked back since and I have been trying to recruit all my buddies!
