Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.
Over the weekend we had a few teams from the Academy competing in the powerful invitational (fitness competition). On Saturday Cliona and Colin put on an amazing performance and after five tough workouts they got themselves a top 20 finish in a highly competitive division. Well done Cliona and Colin, you guys should be super proud of yourselves, you left it all on the competition floor.
Yesterday Mickella and Sean competed in the Rx division. That letters Rx means it’s the highest standard of fitness competition in Ireland and yesterday the division was stacked full of incredible athletes from all around Ireland and some of the athletes have represented Ireland at a European level. Mickella and Sean battled through six tough workouts and ended up on the podium in 3rd place. To see them push themselves to the limit every workout was inspiring not only for me, but for everyone else watching. I couldn’t be any happier for them as they really gave it 100% and left it all on the floor. Well done Mickella and Sean you guys should be super proud of yourselves.
Also yesterday Louise and myself were competing in the Rx masters division. Again Rx means it’s the highest standard of competition and masters is athletes over 35. After six tough workouts Louise and myself came 4th overall, missing out on 3rd place by 1 point. In workout 4 we took 3rd place and lost out on 2nd place by one second, if we got 2nd in that workout we would of came 3rd overall, but that’s sport eh. I would like to thank Louise for being an incredible team mate, she gave it 100% all day and it’s always amazing sharing the workout floor with her, what an inspirational person and athlete.
For me personally it was great to get back to competing in fitness competitions, it’s been about 18 months since I’ve competed in a fitness competition and it’s only been 7 months since I had back surgery, so to step out on the floor yesterday with in my opinion the best standard of athletes I’ve ever competed against, was just an amazing experience.
