What got you here?

As a crossfitter I always loved squats and deadlifts, so thought I try a novice comp just to see how I’d go. Enjoyed the comp and the community at PTC so much, thought I’d “give it a go”.

Why did you stay?

The amazing community filled with passionate, strong and simply amazing guys and girls; The best coaching going around and; Simply a new found love for the sport.

Why do you lift?

Because, why not. Seeing your hard work pay off to direct results of the numbers going up. To be strong and fit and healthy.

Where did you start and where are you now?

I started as a crossfitter (still am) and spent a lot of time trying to build my squat and deadlift. My first novice comp in October 2016 I got:
Squat – 110kg, Bench – 60kg, Deadlift – 135kg. After 6 months of training, I’ve not only increased my numbers but my all round strength, mobility and control.

What about your goals?

I’d love to get a 400kg total (so close) and maybe a national record or two, would be amazing.
