BIO

I was into Surf Lifesaving and Rugby League when I was younger which were great sports to develop fitness and strength. I found CrossFit in 2014 and quickly fell in love with the sport. After focussing the majority of my training on a CrossFit based program, I realised how quickly my strength numbers were increasing without training a whole lot of strength. From there I took the hint, and decided to dedicate all my time to Weightlifting at the end of the 2016 season. I can't wait to represent Australia and AlphaFit in many more competitions around the world in years to come.

 

WHY ALPHAFIT?

Simply the best equipment on the market. From their plates, rigs, bars and apparel they just are the best in the game. The team of athletes they are building is the best group of experienced and up and coming athletes in Australia and it is a privilege to be part of it.

 

FAVOURITE ALPHAFIT ITEM?

I love the new range of Apparel! I think the new designs are simple, but they look epic. The shirts breathe really well and feel comfortable throughout the whole training session!
