LIFT FOR LYME DISEASE
3oth May 2015
On Saturday we held Lift for Lyme Disease. A deadlifting competition to help raise money for Lyme Disease awareness. We had a dozen athletes compete in both the mens and women’s division and raised $500 for the cause. All proceeds are going to Ward’s Gym member Jayne Moore’s Half Marathon Run Melbourne in support of her nephew who suffers from Lyme Disease. She aims to raise awareness for Lyme Disease Australia. Congratulations to Russell Bowe for taking out the mens division with a 262kg lift at 90kg body weight and Jenni Cook for taking out the women’s division with a 165kg deadlift at 61kg body weight. Both athletes just shy of 3 times bodyweight lifts. Awesome effort guys. Big thanks to The Wod Life for sponsoring the event.

31st January 2015
Last weekend two of our athletes headed to Bangkok’s Annual Bangkok Brawl. We’re super proud of Brad and Kara for stepping up and competing, big effort to travel to another country on their own to compete without the support of the whole team there. Not only that they kicked some ass while they were there. Brad finishing 7th overall in his first comp and Kara taking out second place overall in the RX’d division, one point off taking out first place. Awesome effort guys!!!

STATE OF ORIGIN CROSSFIT CLASSIC
Australia Day Weekend 2013
We took a team of 8 back to Mildura to compete in the State of Origin CrossFit Classic held by CrossFit YouFit on the banks of the Murray River. Amazing weather and an incredible backdrop provided us with the perfect setting to battle it out with 50 competitiors in each division. We had probably the smallest team going into the competition but our results speak for themselves with 5 of us finishing in the top 20, 3 of which finished in the top 10 and 1 getting a 3rd place on the podium. Here are some snap shots from the event courtesy of Frankie Lee Matthews and Sarah Peace.
