Bio

A late starter in crossfit and slowly making my way up the ladder each time...just keep chuggin' along.

ATHLETE INFORMATION

How I Eat

I eat quality foods but don't measure the amount

I eat quality paleo foods and...but I will eat some non-paleo foods on the odd occasion...as a little treat to myself :D

How I Train

I workout mostly at a CrossFit Affiliate

I have a coach who determines my programming

I incorporate CrossFit.com workouts

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 usually only do 1 workout a day

I do multiple workouts in a day 2x 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, technique work or pure mobility (biggest weakness).

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

2-4 years

Started on 27th July 2012...and have't looked back since.
