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 am working on a few things with an amazing company, shooting some gifted athletes… I can’t announce much more just at the moment; however, I am pretty excited at the opportunities this particular group have given me and I look fwd to being able to reveal all soon!
One such shoot was with this little legend, Kara Webb… My second with her in as many weeks!!! Outstanding athlete and even more outstanding person… Thanks CrossFit Roar for having me and apologies for taking up valuable floorspace during open gym!!!
We don’t need to wish you luck J-Lai. Only congrats in advance! For those who don’t know, Jessica Lai (pictured) is one amazingly talented olympic weightlifter and will be throwing some heavy sh!t around this weekend at the AWF Commonwealth Games Trials on the Gold Coast. If you were looking for something to do this weekend (J-Lai lifts Saturday morning), the Mercure Resort is where this pocket rocket and other top lifters from across the country will be strutting their stuff!
The SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs road trip took me back to my home town, Warrnambool… Also home to the ridiculously awesome, Again Faster Development Athlete, and CrossFit Warrnambool coach Claire Fraser, her partner Jon Burchell and their two furry wrecking balls, Jeff and Millie. We had some serious fun during this shoot… I think the dogs had the most fun – As you can see by their cheeky ‘Cheshire cat’ grins! Thanks for having us Claire, Jon’ and the entire team at CrossFit Warrnambool!!! Great box, great crew, great town! Enjoy the little preview:
My camera is fast becoming a permanently attached fixture to my arm, and I am blessed to be busier than a one armed truck driver with itchy ‘googs’ of late! I have been extremely lucky to be asked to take images for some business’ websites and one such business is the insanely impressive Function Well Health and Fitness Centre located in Newstead. Without bias, Function Well is run by one of the most well reputed fitness professionals in the industry (Darren Bain) and supported by a team of first class trainers, customer service, sales and remedial therapy practitioners. The gym itself is lavishly decked to cater any serious athlete, yogi, or just your recreational/beginner. The entire venue, atmosphere and ambience is something unmatched in Brisbane… If you want to experience luxury, while beasting yourself over a METCON or PT session, complete bliss through some of the more gentle classes, or need to be repaired through some massage or naturopathy, Function Well is your one stop shop. Get.On.Board.
Here is only one image I can share, taken for the new website… For more, get over to the site >>HERE<< or go visit the place and have your skirt blown sky high by how awesome it is!
The SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs Project is boasting some pretty big names in the sporting (and canine!) community, and this feature is definitely no exception! Laura Geitz, captain of the Australian Netball Diamonds and Queensland Firebirds, Commonwealth Games silver medallist and Liz Ellis Diamond recipient, is also an ambassador for RSPCA Qld, and huge animal welfare advocate! Laura and her beautiful Staffy, Charlie, are the perfect fit to feature in the WOD Dogs photo-book and our shoot this week WASN’T a hard task!
A huge thank you must be given to EzyDog! Tom and Gareth travelled from their Gold Coast office to attend the shoot and kit out Charlie in the latest EzyDog canine accessories!
Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the images from the day:
I know a chick… She’s ‘strong like bull’! This chick is a coach to CrossFit Kids (Mitchelton), can out-WOD and out-lift most men, and eats, sleeps, breathes and $h!ts CrossFit! I love her to bits…This chick is all kinds of awesome… And her name is Sarah Petchell.
I just had a kick ar$e morning with Rob Noy and the CrossFit CrossAxed crew, taking shots for their new website, being launched shortly! The community Rob and his team have built is extraordinary and it’s easy to see why CrossAxed has such a great rep’ in SEQ! If you are a ‘south-sider’ (near Morningside), get on over to check out the scene and get amongst it at CrossAxed!
Here’s a little preview from the session:
