Rising stars at Rx Fitness 235

 

 

A team of four from Rx Fitness 235 entered in the Rising Stars 2015 at Te Rapa Crossfit, and came away with some great results and well earned experience.

Held in Hamilton, the competition was for those who had never competed before, but wanted to give the event a go.
There were three categories which were divided into on how long competitors had been training for:
Rookies, 0 to 6 months; Minors, 6 to 12 months; Majors, 12 months plus.
Rx Fitness 235 had two competitors in minors and two in majors.
“They all did fabulously, definitely a challenge which showed their strengths and weaknesses, but their determination was brilliant to watch and made us very proud,” says Nikki Hudson of Rx Fitness 235.
“Our two in the Majors category were very competitive, with one missing out on the final by one point and the other was fifth equal, but missed out by a second on his run.”
Nikki says that while they are not a Crossfit gym, the competition allowed gyms that use the Crossfit methodology to compete. “This was great for us. We have such a variety of members, using this methodology for both wellbeing, and others that enjoy the competitive side of it. It’s a challenging style of training, but we have a great supportive community and, as coaches, we scale for all fitness levels to achieve results. These guys really enjoyed it, and Mac and I just wanted to tell everyone how proud we are of them.”

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
