A great experience was spending time training with an old friend Jeremy Austin the owner of CrossFit Gold Coast It was here I met Rob Downton from Raw Strength & Conditioning and was fortunate enough to catch up with Rob in January this year and secure his services as a coach. With his background and approach to training and CrossFit I knew things would be “different”. His attitude to specific skills and to work capacity is a whole new level!
With just one month to go until the regional qualification in Korea I continue to execute Rob’s training daily at Evolve under the watchful eye of one of Dubai’s leading trainers and Evolve co-founder, Dan Harrison.
The only way to describe preparing for an event like this is “Full on” there are so many skills and techniques that you have to address in the gym and then outside the gym your life has to change too as there are a number of factors which can aid your performance such as sleep patterns, nutrition and lifestyle choices which have to be taken into consideration.
I am very lucky, I have a great coaching team in Rob and Dan, a huge support in my wife Holly and my family and then all the guys that drop in to do sessions with me and push me as hard as they can.
Lets see what happens at the start of May in Korea!
