In 2010 I got my CrossFit Level 1 Cert. At the time I was still doing bodybuilding style workouts and was relatively unfamiliar with CrossFit. I did my first “WOD” at the Cert (Fran) and was instantly hooked. I wanted to learn as much about this style of training and adopt as many skills as I could. One thing I have learned is how surprised people are when they realize the results they can achieve by putting forth a little effort.
I quickly adopted the “Paleo” way of eating when I realized how much what I eat can affect my performance. My philosophy on diet has changed by basing my eating on how the food makes me feel rather than how it tastes.
My life has changed, not only in the gym but outside as well. The best part of my job is that I have the chance to further my fitness journey, and I also have the opportunity to help others do the same.
