Intermediate Team Member: Shez McLeod

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Fresh of the plane back from Masters League finals in the GC where she took 5 overall in her division, Shez just needs to recover from her last comp and she will be ready to go for Nationals. She is in the best shape of possibly her life so she will be looking to give the team a huge boost. Shez has made some massive improvements to her fitness especially with her gymnastics both through PT sessions and classes. If Masters League is anything to go by she will be leading from the front at the Mount. This will be Shez’s first Nationals and it will be great to follow her progress up to and beyond this comp.

This will be Jacks second competition this year after he did an awesome job at clang n bang earlier this year. At just 17 years old he is now stepping it up to Team Nationals where he will join the rest of the intermediate team and even cooler get a chance to compete with his dad Mark who is also in the team. It will be a special moment and it will be awesome to see Jack step onto the floor up there. He has worked tirelessly in classes and under the watchful eye of Marcus during their PT sessions.

Jacks strength is definitely his ability to hit good solid positions in his lifting and even under fatigue his technique doesn’t break down. That will keep him safe from getting too beat up over the course of the weekend. His gymnastics has also come a long way so he will be a big help for the team in that department.

Jack is a fantastic guy and it is so good to see him come into his own on the CrossFit floor. It will be great to follow his continual progress in the sport of CrossFit.

Intermediate Team Captain, Conrad Frew

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Conrad Frew was one of the very first members at Southern Peak CrossFit. He has been working hard over these 2+ years at the gym and even before then. He has been struggling with a couple of injuries but he is ready to take on the challenge again this year. He led the Masters Team to a 7th place overall at last years Team nationals and this year he is looking to repeat the success from 2017. Always calm under pressure which will be a huge advantage for both his personal performance and the team performance. Especially in a chaotic environment as this will be. Conrad will be leading from the front and the other team members will be looking to him to bring some calmness and perspective over the team especially if things get tough.

Get your teams sorted for the Team Comp

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It is all going down on the 6th of Oct. at the gym so make sure you get your team finalized early so you don’t have to rush to find the last person. You all have to be from a different decade so it won’t be an easy task. There are some strong teams on the white board already and there are also a few unfinished teams so if you need to find a team start with them. Time is ticking. This comp is a fundraiser for our two Nationals teams going away so the re is a $5 competitor fee. The money goes 100% to the traveling team members.

Get amongst it and remember we need to see a team from each of the nationals athletes so there is no time to waste.

Note: If we run out of certain age groups we can compromise to make sure everyone gets to compete but we will make sure you don’t stack your teams:)

Off to the GC

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Shez, Chris and myself are off to the Gold Coast today to represent the South Island Masters Team at Masters League 2018. It will be a tough weekend ahead with many unknown events but we are all looking forward to the challenge. A lot of hard work has been put into competing at this comp and we hope this will motivate a bunch of you to take up the challenge next year. We would like to thank everyone who has been supporting us both financially through fundraising but also everyone around the gym. Special mention to Eldon and Carey’s Bay Marine services and Nick Beard from Cutlers for donation to our trip and to everyone who did the fundraising comp with us. It means the world to us to have such an awesome community behind us.

We will keep you posted as good as we can and film as many of the events as possible. There will be a live feed from the events on the Mastersleague Facebook page. I will send through a link on our Facebook page.

Leigh Martel, RX Team Member

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Leigh has been in the CrossFit game for a long time. She went to Regionals in the same team as Brad and has been around CrossFit ever since. Leigh’s sporting background is mainly gymnastics so the team is completely covered in that aspect of fitness. The last few years Leigh has put special focus on olympic weightlifting and has competed in multiple South Island and National Championships. Leigh’s ability to knuckle down and get in the pain cave is something else and that will definitely give the team a big boost over the course of the weekend. Having someone prepared to go the extra mile for the team is invaluable.

Brad Lee, RX Team Member

Brad came down to us a while back and wanted to start CrossFit again. He started coming to regular classes in the evening. He is very busy with his job as a real estate agent, so at times we don’t see him much but when he was picked for our Nationals Team his priorities changed a bit and he has been training hard since. Brad is one of those naturally fit people though, so even if he doesn’t train for awhile he is still able to come into the gym and RX every workout and lift close to his PR lifts. Brad has already had top level CrossFit experience in a team environment when he joined our old CFD team at Regionals a few years ago. He will be pumped to be back out on the competition floor and he will be bringing all that experience and fitness with him to help the rest of the team.

Marcus Matapo, RX Team Member

Marcus started as a member at SPC and became a coach here almost 2 years ago. He has been a huge asset for the gym in a coaching capacity but Marcus has also made some extraordinary improvements over his first two years of CrossFit training and now he gets to take it to the next level with a National competition. Marcus bought into the CrossFit methodology straight away and haven’t looked back. With his well rounded fitness he will be able to put his stamp on the competition and help the team out where ever it is needed.

Lucy Mossman, RX Team Member

Lucy will get her first taste of national competition at Nationals this year. She has been working super hard at SPC over the pst 2 years and it will be awesome to see her compete at this level for the first time. Lucy has a background in gymnastics which will serve her really well at the comp. Lucy has worked a lot on her weightlifting technique and strength over the last few months which will give her heaps of confidence going in to Nationals if you think about what came out of the hopper last year. Apart from Lucys awesome athletic abilities she is also a very positive girl which will help keep the team happy and in a good head space between each event.
