Jimmy Toppeta is a crossfit coach at Signature Fitness. In addition to being a CrossFit coach at Signature Fitness, he holds a master’s degree in Exercise Science, has been teaching elementary school Health and Physical Education for 19 years, and is a single dad of two girls. This month he took the time to answer some of our questions about Crossfit.
Prema: Tell us a little about the CrossFit community.
Prema: Are there dietary recommendations for those who make CrossFit their primary workout?
Prema: What does a daily workout schedule look like?
Prema: How do you balance being a single dad, a coach, and maintaining your own fitness?
Coach Jimmy: Balancing all these roles can be demanding, but it comes down to effective time management and prioritization. My daughters are my top priority, so I make sure to schedule dedicated time for them. As for coaching and personal fitness, I integrate them into my routine. CrossFit is not just a job for me; it’s a passion. So, coaching becomes a seamless part of my day. It’s all about finding harmony between responsibilities and personal well-being.
Thank you for your time Jimmy and sharing your knowledge with us. Jimmy coaches at Signature Fitness Thursday evenings at 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm.
