I’ve been really enjoying capturing some photos from the competition workouts over the last 5 weeks. Here are two of my fave that truly sum up why I love my Crossfit family and what Crossfit stands for.

Mother and Daughter, after completing a workout together in competition.

Strong women. May we be them; may we raise them



And the teamwork. Everyone is in it together, every step of the way.



Ellery Creek Big Hole, March 2018

I decided that I needed a little ‘me’ time after finishing night shifts, now that my car is finally here and all…

Pics from Ellery Creek Big Hole. Still waiting to see a flood, validating the hundreds of ‘floodway’ signs…




When I talk about the gym, I often get asked what is Crossfit or what’s so good about it?

It’s hard to describe what it actually is. I suppose, in essence, it is a mix of functional fitness and olympic lifting. It’s always different, and no matter how good you may think you are at a certain movement, it’s aways bloody hard. I can’t tell you how much I hate the gymnastics rig – pull ups, toes to bar, chest to bar, blah blah blah…

But what I love is watching everyone, and how everyone has their own thing. I’m good at olympic lifting, but crap at pull ups; you’re good at gymnastics, but struggle with your mobility in the bottom of a squat. It’s so cool to see everyone smashing their own goals, whether it be a beginner learning to clean, or a veteran cross fitter getting their first muscle up. I love it.

But what I love most is the camaraderie, the support, the teamwork, the vibes. Everyone is so bloody friendly, so supportive and your personal victory becomes a victory for the box. It’s addicting, and really is a big family. I’m so glad to have found a box in the Outback that I’m loving being apart of, that has reignited my spark to train. Full credit to the owners, coaches & members – you’re all awesome

Hopefully these pictures sum it up…


Uluru Sunrises, and coffee.




Cheers, darling

Sunset with champagne & canapés overlooking Ularu. Does it get much better?

This was then followed by ‘Field of Light’ – a light instillation by Bruno Munro, with over 50,000 solar lights at the base of Uluru.

Welcome to Alice. Simpson’s Gap.

Well… we have arrived in Alice Springs! Day 1 done and dusted.

It never rains in Alice.

Of course, it rained when we got here. Nonetheless, it’s blood beautiful. Colour photos are of Mum and I at Simpsons Gap. Also, our hire car is red. Very red.

The black and white photo is from a morning walk today just around our hotel. The locals are very friendly, and she pointed out the rock wallabies. Can you spot them, on top of the mountain?
