It been an interesting couple of weeks in Australia. It is great to be catching up with the family and friends who I’ve not seen in 3years (who would have thought setting up a business in London would take so much time and effort)… Anyhow, I’m not the type to go on holidays and forget about training, its something I enjoy, so why wouldn’t I keep it up?
Its also been a great chance for me to visit some CrossFit boxes in Australia and New Zealand to see how they do it. The global CrossFit community is awesome. Its nice to be welcomed into a box and have the ability to chat to owners, coaches and members alike. Everyone is welcoming and easy to chat with. Its actually a very unique thing if you stop and think about it. Keeping up training on holidays can be a hard thing, nobody really want to go to a globo gym on holidays. But hitting up a CrossFit box is something different and a chance to meet some locals.
It has also made me appreciate how hard our members actually work. You guys have it lucky!! The programming and the coaching at Momentum Training is world class, and the community and the general fitness levels of our members are solid!
Keep up the hard work guys and girls. See you all in a week.

The snatch is probably the most technical lift. Breaking it down into small elements is the best way to learn the snatch. Learning how to escape a bad snatch is also a valuable life lesson.
