I love my work for the simple reason that I get to hang out with (and meet) amazingly talented, healthy, positive and driven people. This past week, I had the pleasure of working with such a group (again) – The crew at HangStrong Gymnastics; this time to shoot their new Tee and Singlet line. There are some wicked designs and colours up for grabs… So, if you can’t walk the walk, or talk the talk, at least try and bluff everyone by looking the goods! Visit the team >>HERE<< to get more information on not only their rad clothing, but their coaching services to anyone/affiliate/gym wishing to become more efficient in gymnastic movement. There is no better crew to take you to the next level…

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!):

Sure, a polished, minimalist style gym is attractive to some, but nothing heightens your senses and amps your heart rate more than a raw, industrial box where you can throw sh!t, drop sh!t, yell sh!t, take your sh!t off, play loud sh!t, and sweat all over sh!t… #oldschool

I had one of the best weekends in a long time because of the gymnastics workshop I attended on Saturday! 3.5 hrs of funky skills from handstands, to rings, to bar and parallettes… What made it better was my fellow athlete participants (the CrossFit Mitchelton and Again Faster HQ crew) and the excellent coaches at Hang Strong. Here is a pic’ I snuck of one of the trickster coaches (and dual Commonwealth Games gold medalist!)- Tom Pichler, mid flight…

A little while ago, I was asked to photograph athletes to include in some marketing collateral for HangStrong. ‘What’s HangStrong?’ I hear you ask, well, HangStrong is a team of extremely competent gymnastic coaches providing training / coaching workshops to Gyms and CrossFit Boxes local and interstate.

The team comprises 2010 Commonwealth Games (dual) Gold Medallist, Thomas Pichler, Again Faster Development Squad member and Head Coach / Trainer at City 4051 CrossFit, Natan Geva , and 2011 CrossFit Regional (Australasian) Games qualifier and Head Trainer at City 4051 CrossFit, James Whybird.

Between the three of these athletes, anyone wanting to learn and refine their gymnastic skills is going to benefit in a BIG way. Whether you are a seasoned CrossFit athlete, or complete beginner, the HangStrong team will have you moving your bodyweight efficiently and safely… If you are on Facebook, go check them out >>HERE<<. Or even better, if you are a Gym, PT Studio, or CF Box owner/manager, book them for a workshop and have your clients love you forever for adding to their arsenal of training skill sets!

Anyway, back to my story… They have used my images for their marketing… #massiveanticlimax…

Lads and ladies, I bring to you my next feature athlete… Some of you may know this humble yet lethal beast, and for those of you that don’t; his name is Zack Williams and he is about to compete at the CrossFit Games Regionals in a few weeks time.
