Here are some of our members’ recent competition achievements.

27/10/2017 October Team Comp

Well done to Alex for finishing joint 4th and qualifying for the finals of the European Championships. Thanks to Ben at Sulston’s Kitchen for all Alex’s food, it’s really made a difference and helped him get his numbers up since he’s started training again after 2 years away from CrossFit. #cft #bringthebeastback#sulstonskitchen #goalexgo

11th March 2017 – Couples’ Comp

Great couples comp today at CFT. Well done to Benjamina for winning the best couple title!!  #cft #happycouples #traintogetherstaytogether#crossdressing 

Crossfit Open 17.1 Throw Down:

To celebrate the start of the 2017 Crossfit Games, a few of our members got together on Friday night to start the open season with a bang. Thanks for Prem for the video.

CFT Annual Christmas awards:

Once again we had our annual Christmas awards. This year we went back to 3 awards, Athletes Athlete voted for by the members, Coaches athlete voted for by all of the coaches and Most improved also voted for by the coaches.

Athlete Athlete:

1st Anita Card by a landslide victory. If we all didn’t know her and what she has been through this year we probably wouldn’t of even know that she was diagnosed with Cancer. She continued training throughout her treatments and with a smile on her face. A great inspiration and worthy winner.
2nd Mike Philips. Always pushing hard and bringing up the standard of the box. He also has helped many since passing his Level 1 coaches course.

Coaches Athlete:

1st Sophie Grant. Having had her second knee operation a year ago she has gone onto smashing new PB’s, qualifying for major comps such as Battle of the Beasts and been an all round team player in the gym.
2nd Emma Tiong. Emma has been in the top 3 for both Athletes & Coaches athlete awards for the past few years and there is pretty much nothing she hasn’t mastered this year.

Most Improved:

1st Claire Palmer. Claire has come on leaps and bounds this year, from scaling wods to now winning many of them. Claire is now one of our strongest females and is consistently give Rich a run for his money.
2nd Jacqui Harding. Jacqui only missed out winning by 1 vote. Over the last year she has made huge improvements particularly in her gymnastic skills. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her joining the muscle up club next year.

Stand Alone Series winter 2015 (NWK):

Another great turn out by CFT members for this one, Rich Palmer, Sophie Grant who placed 2nd in their summer event, Katie Latham and Matt Hollamby making a come back to CrossFit as well as Rich Spence who follows the CFT competitor program. Once again everyone did the club proud with some very strong performances, particularly the girls both placing comfortably in the top 10. Rich Spence was unlucky not to win the competition going into the final with an 18 point lead but unfortunately the scores were wiped for the final and he finished 2nd in the final event and therefore overall.

League of Legends 2015:

This was online masters competition that consisted of 5 workouts over 10 weeks. The difference with this competition was that the older you were, the greater handicap you were given, aimed at evening the playing field. Gary Harding had some great results especially after coming back from a huge injury last year winning him the scaled competition and with doing some of the workouts as RX.
