in 100 Words:
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.”

Coach and Mentor
I started CrossFit in 2009 as a program to supplement my distance running program. Trained with my normal run schedule and added CrossFit three days a week. 4 months later I ran a PR 10 mile race at 70 minutes and then switched to CrossFit as my fulltime fitness program.
In 2010 I received my Level 1 Cert followed by my Level 2 in 2011. I was an affiliate manager for about two and a half years in Washington, DC. Since coming out of full time gym management I have kept up as a coach and athlete.
