This week we’ll be taking a little break from our favourite recipes and getting to know a little bit about a few of our fellow G-Trainers again - after all how well do you really know who you’re running alongside or partnered with for boxing!
Michael from our morning bootcamp crew has spilled the beans on an upcoming adventure he will be completing with his wife Emily, good mates Kieran, James and Gordon.
For those who don’t know Michael, he’s an energetic, enthusiastic and friendly bootcamper who loves to give anything a go. During the day he is an IT consultant but when he’d not working he’s busy competing in adventure races and enjoying the great outdoors. In fact we don’t know how he fits it all in, in the past 7 years he has completed a number of races including:
Geoquest (Half and Full), XPD, Mont 24hr MTB, Scott 24hr MTB, Kowalski Classic, Tathra Enduro, Capital Punishment, Tough Mudder, Spartan Beast, Tough Bloke Challenge, Black Hawk Challenge, Urban Polaris, Sri Chinmoy Triple Tri and Rogaines.
I think it’s safe to say nothing holds him back, in fact his philosophy is simple “every race is a training session for the next”.
Now we’ll hand it over to Michael to tell us a little bit more about upcoming adventure…..
On the Queen's Birthday weekend three G-Trainers will put their skills to the test in the annual Geoquest adventure race, navigating over 120km of mountain biking, trekking and kayaking in 24 hours (or less!) as a team. The course is a secret until the day before, and is provided as a series of maps that must be followed using a compass (no GPS!) to find a series of checkpoints. The team is Resultz Racing and consists of myself, Kieran, Emily, and good mate Gordon, with James providing cheerful support at each transition throughout the race. This will be the first adventure race for Kieran and Gordon, and only the second long race for Emily, so they have been working hard to improve their endurance for the event. Luckily Gav and Tiff have been setting some challenging sessions recently, which means we will be ready for whatever the race throws at us, especially if it is frog burpees :)
To follow their progress the race starts on June 10th in Sawtell NSW, with live tracking of teams at http://geoquest.com.au/, and updates posted to the Resultz facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ResultzPtyLtd/.
If you see Michael or his crew in class don’t forget to say hello, wish them luck with their upcoming adventure or have a chat their next challenge!
