Well a lot did happen during these 8 weeks!
Justine traveled to Melbourne to compete at whats widely known as Australias most prestigious CrossFit competition outside of Regionals for the Schwartz challenge on the 7th and 8th November.
Over 2 days of competition doing 3-4 extremely challenging wods a day against many of the top females in Australia Justine came away with a 2nd place finish on the podium!
Justine won event 1 and from there grew in confidence with some exceptional performances that left many competitors in shambles, Jus came out smiling 🙂
Congratulations Justine!! We were all watching the results on wodbuzz and cheering you on from a far, everyone at CFLM is so proud of you.
Justine has been training extremely hard since Regionals this year following a new program and this weekend was a great result that showed she will be a force to be reckoned with in 2016. Such an inspiration to all our members as to what hard work and dedication can achieve.

The spirit of the Games award went to Todd Leydecker! Todd judged more heats than anyone else and was constantly cheering everyone on all day. Running after and alongside the teams that were fighting hard to keep going.
The Matti Tikka PowerLifting competiton 6th November
We were lucky enough to play host to Australia’s most prestigious Powerlifitng competition.
This was an IPF sanctioned event in which drug testing is possible following the strict code of the International Powerlifitng Federation.
Each athlete had 3 attempts at a 1 rep max Back squat, Bench Press and Deadlift.
With 50 competitors lifting many of whom had flown from interstate to compete, over 16 Australian records were broken!!
One female competitor Elizabeth Craven, at 52kg body weight Deadlifted 172.5kg to break the current WORLD RECORD for her weight class!
With the generous space allowed by our facility, the athletes agreed that ours was one of the best venues they had lifted in with ample arm up area, competition area and room for spectators.
At one stage there were 150 people in the gym lifting and spectating which made for an incredible atmosphere.
Kerry has been working so hard on her gymnastics skills after most of her classes, staying back and doing those extra reps to get the strength gains! Kerry is also a busy Mum with 2 kids who balances her family and training beautifully week in week out. By keeping up her training it gives her more energy for family life.
