One and Six Month Anniversary

It's been 4 weeks, 12 sessions of sweat and determination (thankfully no tears nor blood yet!) and I've completed a month of training at The Cell. It's quite surreal as I look back only two short months ago I remember the conversation with my brother well - he spent over an hour talking to me about Crossfit and now I've done a month and been featured on The Cell's Website page for athletes. Quite an honor as they have an Australian Olympian training with them.

This week also marked my 6 month anniversary of being in Australia! Cannot wait to see where the next 6 months take us.....

I'm on my own for two weeks now - off traveling to the east coast for a sustainability learning journey so I will be working hard to find time in our busy schedule to do some body weight only workouts. Should have some interesting photos to post at some point in time!

This last week kicked my butt physically. I can honestly say that I have never in my life pushed myself to the edge of physical fatigue the way I did this week. It was an interesting experience and not to mention frustrating when your mind is fit and strong and the limiting factor are your muscles!

Here's why:


10-20-30 reps for time
Ball Slams - 5kg
Walking Lunges
Over Head Squats - 12 kg
Time: 14:15min

21-15-9 reps
Hand Stand Push Ups (Blue/Purple Bands)
Ring Dips (Purple Band)
Push Ups (knees and bench)
Time: 17:47


Power Cleans 3-3-3-3-3 - 25kg

2 rounds of time of:
Burpee Broad Jumps, 10 reps
Walking lunges, 30 reps
12 kg Kettle Ball swings, 21 reps
Pull ups, 21 reps (purple band)
10kg Ball Slams, 21 reps
Time: 14:54 min

Whooo weeee!
