Great news all, the FOAP award is coming back. After the success of the big move, and members plentiful to win the award we're returning it to circulation!
A no brainer for us we have a CrossFit baby on the way! The Lusher's have been with us for a long time now, and not only have they both made massive progress in the gym, Lindsay is now pregnant and keeping low intensity training in her regime to stay healthy through pregnancy and Paul has made amazing progress in his stability work!
It's amazing to see such an awesome couple in the gym day in day out, really proud to give a double FOAP!
Our gorgeous Steph deserves every ounce of this award #fabat40 Steph is a phenomenal athlete who digs in to achieve every goal she sets herself. With a positive attitude in the gym everyday Steph was such an obvious choice for December's FOAP as she made a cracking come back into the festive period!
The training team were all in agreement this month that Jan should be November's FOAP.
Jan consistently works hard, and as a long standing member that's quite the commitment. Just recently, Jan has achieved kipping pull ups (after achieving strict pull ups to get there!), and some massive improvements in her lifting. This has all been down to just diligently grafting away, and listening to cues from coaching staff, and implementing or trying to improve just 1% each day. So well done Jan, so well deserved!
Congratulations to our Face on October's Plate Baz!
After winning not only one but TWO competitions this month Baz has well and truly inspired the community in the gym to keep reaching their goals!
Nice work Baz.
I am thrilled to announce our Mr September Face on a Plate! Chris is both an athlete and a trainer at CrossFit Gaia, and has been voted for this month because of his sheer dedication to the athletes at Gaia, not only making massive progressions in his own training, but also motivating and inspiring others in the box to do the same.
After leading everyone at the box down an awesome nutrition path recently we're thrilled to have Chris as part of Team Gaia and even more made up that he is September's FOAP!
Athlete: Emily Charlton.
Emily's first few weeks with us were spent with her swimming race numbers sunburnt into her back.
An excellent swimmer Emily has won Face on a Plate August for her grit and determination through each workout!
Nice work Emily. Good to see swimmers can work on land too!
Athlete Sarah Jackson won our inaugural face on a plate for July 2016.
A beginner to fitness Sarah has seen massive improvements in her four months with us, and is also an absolute pleasure to train and have around. Known as Miss #pinapplefit Sarah recently managed a 45kg clean!
Listens to every piece of advice and diligently works her weaknesses. What an absolute dreamboat to train!
Well deserved Sarah!
