The WOD Dogs of our CrossFit Regionals (Australia) Athletes thought they would send some personal messages of love and good luck to their amazingly talented, athlete humans… And while I am on the topic, I would like to thank each of you for being a part of this project. You are all an inspiration, show true grace and talent in your sport (and personally) and regardless of where you place, you are all number one in my eyes!

I was privileged to be asked by Revie of CrossFit Babes Miami to shoot their first Games Day… It comprised ‘Babes’ athletes only, and was a showcase of how far these ladies have come in their training and also gave them a taste of competitive CrossFit. And, it didn’t disappoint (for many reasons)! Cracking venue, weather, coaches, support staff/volunteers/judges, a demo by pocket rocket Jessica Coughlan (Rogue Athlete, placing 6th at the 2013 CrossFit Regionals – Australia), and great stalls by ASN and Thea Doyle. Overall, it was testament to Revie and Clayton’s hard work, professionalism and dedication to their clients. Here’s a little sneak peek at the day (I haven’t included too many individual shots as I wanted Revie to be able to post them for the box, herself – trust me, there are MANY more!):

Some pimped up pics from the Allstar Affiliate Series (Brisbane)… And a very cool little passage from Jon Gilson, Again Faster owner:

If you’re here for the money, turn around now. We’ll find you out, and we’ll eat you alive.

See, we don’t need another paleo whatever. We’ve got enough compression, and our shoes work just fine. Our barbells no longer bend, and buying an entire gym takes minutes, not days. We don’t need a “revolutionary med ball”.

Your app does what my watch does. Graphing my workout doesn’t make my times faster or my lifts heavier, and checking in my clients is pretty easy when it consists of a hug and a hello. 

Your print ads don’t convince me, and your supplement won’t do anything I can’t accomplish in a grocery store. See, we are not a business opportunity, not the next big thing. We are not a consumer demographic. 

Rather, we are a Community united, real people on a mission, unyielding in our pursuit of progress.

Teach us to be better. Push human performance forward. Help us figure out how to better serve our clients, the men and women learning to air squat for the first time, the eighteen year old kid who wants to compete. Give us tools that matter, give us education, make your value so obvious that you could sell it without saying a word.

See, we don’t want to eat you alive. We want to hug you. Give us a reason, just one, to love what you do, to bring you into the fold. Focus on excellence, on contribution, on being an asset to this Community. Find a need, find a deficit, fill it with overwhelming force. 

Please, show us that money is the last thing on your mind. Show us that you’re one of us, on a mission to build a better world, show us that you matter.

See, it’s not the money you’re looking for. It’s the Community, and we’re right here. Waiting.

This is part-reason why CrossFit is hitting its straps internationally… This is why the CrossFit community is so tight and growing every day… This is why CrossFit demands and delivers real results… This is why CrossFit is developing and fostering serious athletic talents across the world…

Because it takes you to where you wouldn’t normally be prepared to venture yourself, physically and mentally; in an environment that ensures safety and camaraderie. It teaches you resilience and self awareness, adaptation to repetitive loads, and lactic hell, and it puts you on your arse every time if you do it properly!!!

Mum always told me you can tell a lot about someone by the way they dress… And, I am inclined to think that she was on the money! Don’t get me wrong; I am a bloke’s fashion-whore, and it seems so too are thousands of other CrossFitters. I absolutely love (no sarcasm intended) that every CrossFit Event is as colourful as Carnival – Brazil! And, this weekend was no exception at CrossFit Sunshine Coast‘s Throwdown (Caloundra). From personalised Nano’s, to neon head bands with matching socks, to old-school Vollies, there were some funky outfits (being worn by some serious athletes) getting down and dirty in the mud and rain! Here are just a few pics I snuck for Again Faster Media. For the remainder, be watching the Again Faster Facebook page and while you are at it, ‘like’ them to get other great updates on products/equipment/apparel, their sponsored athletes, and a broad range of health and fitness topics. A big thank you to Lori, Lee and the volunteers from CF SC for planning, hosting and managing such a magic event!
