Such an awesome time in the gym last week! The warmer weather and longer days has brought a few stragglers out of the woodwork and Girl Friday, starring Grace/Isabel was just one epic class after another. Everyone moved so well, and put in so much effort, it was truly awesome to watch.
Congrats to Aaron Oxenham (formerly CFNZ, now at RCF09) and Adam Brakey for their efforts at the Military Champs on the weekend. Ox narrowly missed out on the win, taking second place by a single point, and Adam did awesome in a tough field with 9th place. Well done guys!
Shout out to Kim Gear (honourary CFNZ'er) and to our buddy Andy Rodgers (The Rx Clinic and CrossFit SoLat) for their 3rd placings at the CrossFit Taurus Pound 4 Pound competition, also Kevin Manual (Team IA) for his win (still the fittest male athlete in the country)
Great to have some Niners over at CFNZ for our awesome Mobility class, sorting out the overhead position, and then a Rowing Skills Workshop, dialling in the erg setup, damper and drag settings, rowing mechanics, pacing and start strategies.
