How I Eat
I eat strict Paleo
I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount
I eat quality foods and strict paleo...but I will eat some non-paleo foods on the odd occasion
How I Train
I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate
I have a coach who determines my programming
I record my workouts
I also do anything else I can when not at the box
My Athletic Background
I played youth or high school level sports
I used to play amateur league soccer
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
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
I tried crossfit at an affiliate, then got hooked...did my Level 1 cert, became a coach (Jedi) at my box and have mixed my time between, coaching, training, working and studying.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week
I strictly schedule my rest days
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
My training schedule is all over the palce, I train any day and everyday I can, and listen to my body for when I need rest. I try to give myself at least 1-2 days a week rest but if I feel good I'll train. I always give myself a 4-7 rest "week" every 2-3 months, although I will still come into the box and coach or do some very light active rest work or technique work.
