  • And just like that, 4 unbroken, strict ring muscle-ups...my all-time PR was only ever 5. I’ve probably only been on the rings 6 times in the last 6 months. I haven’t worked specific gymnastics strength since before the 2018 @crossfitgames. I’ve been doing only 4 x 60min class wods @crossfitbyronbay and a couple of 60 min easy runs per week plus a swim and a surf...often less than this...and I’m 48 years young...I use to train 4-6hours a day 6 days per week religiously...it’s magical the way the body and mind work, the way they respond to different levels and combinations of stress and stimulation. At the beginning of my CrossFit career, I believed in out-working and out-training every other competitor in the world. That work ethos drove me for my first 6 years of CrossFit . The last few years I have been increasingly recognising the intermingling power and beauty of quality and intensity... More is not better. Better is better. Smarter is better. I believe a great deal of our progress in the gym (and life) can be found by focusing on ways to reduce stress, developing more empowering habits and nourishing our inner worlds more carefully. That’s what I am focussing on in my life as I tip toe playfully into 2019 🦄💜🙏🏻 #strictringmuscleups #mynemisis #unicorn #nevertooold #play #everyonepercent #lessismore #quality #oldladygains #mastersathlete #crossfitmasters #crossfit #hello2019 #findaway #adventure #betterisbetter #skinourishment

  • 💥 💥 50k 💥 💥 💥 Here’s a rare old pic of me from early 2012...at the beginning my CrossFit journey. Thankyou to all the people who have continued to follow, support, share, delight and feel it all with me this past decade. My journey has been without fathom. The highest of highs, the lowest of lows...rinse and repeat, repeat, repeat. By continuing to reach out and share my experiences through social media (the good, the bad and the ugly), I have been continually reminded that I am never alone in whatever my current experience is. There is no shame in struggling, fearing, doubting, hurting, failing, trying over and over. These are the things that make us human. What also makes us human is courage, hope, willingness, heart, enthusiasm, persistence, play. I promise to keep sharing it all, because it helps me make sense of it all too. Thankyou for every kind word, for the words of support and the belief through it all... #remember #thankyou #unicorn #thebestisyettocome #bekind #bettertogether #3xworldchamp #1000kmrun #surgery #puppies #crossfitbyronbay #crossfit #nevertooold #itsok #ruok #odaat #courage #hope #heart #persistence #findaway #hardtokill #timetoplay #skinourishment

  • There are days when you just feel like a badass boss on a barbell...I love those days. I cherish those days particularly because they are so hard earned. Every little unseen and unsung piece of the accessory/strength, health, technique, persistence and hard work matrix goes into making possible those peak experiences. As a female, cycling 5 reps of the barbell at 65kgs on an EMOM pattern is pretty badass...doesn’t matter what your age, that shit is cool 😎 There is such power and purity in building strength and refining movement. I’m 48 years young, never been fitter or stronger. I love it. It’s never too late to believe in yourself, to be what you might have been. All you have to do is keep turning up until the miracles happen. Don’t ever let age be your excuse for not trying, for not expanding your horizons, for not risking a little more, for not being consistent for holding yourself back, for not stepping into your badassness... #ageisjustanumber #empoweryourself #dothework #taketherisks #dreambig #playhard #adventure #barbellfun #fitness #unicorn #fitasfuck #mastersathlete #worldchamp #crossfit #findaway #beconsistent #skinourishment

  • Focus. Breathing. Rhythm. Meditation. Repetition. Count. Determination. Calm. CrossFit has always represented a moving meditation for me. Its often an uncomfortable meditation. Every workout or lift gives me an opportunity to learn to sit in a place of calm, whilst existing in a wildly destructive storm raging all around me (internally and externally). Practicing my CrossFit meditation (working out) gives me the self-knowledge, resilience and strength to conduct myself in the chaotic outside world. We are all better in the world because of the inner-life-lessons and personal growth opportunities CrossFit hands out...if you’re willing to go there, to explore the calm in the storm, to hold strong and learn to seek peace in chaos, then life and workouts become much easier. Our power is in controlling the controllables, and leaving the rest to sort itself out. #focus #eyeofthestorm #meditation #calm #crossfit #nevertooold #findaway #adventurebound #everyonepercent #controlthecontrollables #personalgrowth #fitness #byronbay #unicorn #scar #mastersathlete #skinourishment

  • Sometimes the best way to push yourself further, to build capacity, to squeeze yourself beyond your comfort zone is to work things like EMOMs. I think I’d choose an EMOM if I could only choose one tool for training. Quality work, quality rest, repeatedly. Perfect for the development of skill and strength. I love it because it calms my mind. I don’t have to make any decisions, I just have to do what the clock dictates. I love aways moving on a schedule, with the clock dictating when to move, the exact amount of work to do...no thinking, just doing. This was my epic 16min EMOM from yesterday... I accidentally started at 10kgs heavier than prescribed...oooooops!!! ☠️🦄☠️ 16mins (from floor) EMOM x 5 5 TnG Squat Clean @ 60/40kgs EMOM x 4 4 TnG Squat Clean @ 70/50kgs EMOM x 3 3 TnG Squat Clean @ 80/60kgs EMOM x 2 2 Squat Clean @ 90/70kgs EMOM x 2 1 Squat Clean @ AHAP final rep Adjust weights scheme as necessary, building to a heavy single for the day - 1 attempt at final bar (only 1, if you miss it leave it). #boomshaka #getit #emomlove #workrestrepeat #squatcleaneverything #unicorn #greenpower #rough #crossfit #byronbay #happiness #findaway #qualitynotquantity #play #skinourishment #byronlife #byron #workhard #restharder #doyouevenlift #legdayeveryday

  • When things get hectic I get calm. Training, working, competing, relationships, stressors...doesn’t matter the source of the insanity, my superpower is calmness in the face of it all...the feeling of sitting in the eye of the storm....while the world boils around me. The greater your ability to control your inner landscape, the greater your peace in the outer world. #calmyourfarm #howimportantisit #calm #crossfit #byronbay #happiness #choices #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • I’ve looked for ways to be healthy, well, happy since the first shadows of depression crept through my veins. The journey has been nuts. Sugar addiction. Alcohol addiction. Triathlon. High carb low fat. Vegetarian. Pritikin. Atkins. Taking a Guru. Chanting. Satsang. Meditation. Canoeing. Fibroids. Reading every self-help book. Studying. Medication. Running 1000kms in 31 days. CrossFit. 3 x World Titles. Paleo. Floating. All the wizardry and strange therapies. No dairy, wheat or processed foods. Organic. Vital Greens. Alkalising. You name it, I’ve delved into it, in a bid for some relief from my depression, alcoholism, irritable bowel, food cravings, overweight, brain fog, haemorrhoids, PMT and general confusion with life. Every one percent matters, and certainly every step on my journey has mattered. No one thing ever gave me the solution to all my problems, but everything contributed. For the last 18 months I’ve taken Ketones daily. Inside the first 3 days the benefits were undeniable. After 18months of using them my belief in exogenous ketones knows no bounds. It has been a game changer for me - massive reduction of bodily inflammation (the source of all evil in health and ageing), no brain fog, no cravings (at all), depression reduced dramatically, recovery abilities through the roof, look at how I came back from massive abdominal surgery to win the CrossFit Games. On Ketones I feel I’m living at a higher energy level, that my body and mind have an unfair advantage, that I am literally inoculated against the ravages of stress in my life... I don’t believe there are any wholesale answer to getting it all right, but I do believe there are somethings that are non-negotiables in my life, Ketones are one of those non-negotiables. I want a lifetime of radiant health, strength, happiness and recovery. I deserve it and I’ve earned it. Im grateful for all the work, struggles, failures and discoveries along the way, they have made me truly appreciate the health I have created on this journey through life... #ketolife #healthylifestyle #health #crossfit #pruvit #earnednotgiven #unicorn #everyonepercent #gratitude #imworthit #byronbay #ketones #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • How is it possible that an introvert is the last one to realise she’s a full blown, 100% Introvert? My entire life I’ve thought there was something (many things actually) seriously wrong with me. Now I realise that the Introvert in me has always needed space, solitude, alone time, almost no socialising...it’s ok that she’s blissfully happy sitting on her bed staring at the wall for hours, that she avoids answering calls or calling people back even when she can, that she prefers the company of puppies to humans, that she will avoid stress and drama at all costs, that she can not do small talk of any kind, that she’d rather stay in than go out, that she always chooses deserted beaches over crowds, that coaching people exhausts her. My introvert is the one who trained 1000s of hours in the gym by herself to become a 3 x world champion. My introvert loved her athlete life, early to bed, early to rise, train hard all day, rest and recover, discipline and structure, no social life, only puppies, rinse and repeat. Introverts represent at least 1/3 of the population. Don’t let people tell you it’s not ok to be exactly who you are. Don’t let you reject you for being ‘different’. It can be scary allowing yourself to be fully who you are. I’m still learning everyday, but from this day forward I will honour and nourish my introversion, because that is what I am. #introvert #introvertlife #unicorn #wildunicorn #crossfit #puppylife #byronbay #byronlife #quiettime #bewhoyoureallyare #trust #health #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • 12 months ago I began my first training session ready to qualify for my 6th Pacific Regionals. That same day I found myself in desperate mind numbing pain...it got worse, and worse, until I was rushed to hospital. No morphine could dull the pain. Vulnerable and full of fear I just wanted the pain to stop. I couldn’t stop holding my man’s hand. He was my life line, my stability, my only comfort and promise that everything would be alright. They told me Ovarian Cancer. Scans. Tests. Poking. Guessing. Morphine. My world changed that day. Traumatic times bring clarity. As the drama of daily life falls away, we are left with the essence of what truly matters. Connection. Simplicity. Love. Health. And gratitude for all we take fore granted. The 12 months since that first trip to hospital have been brutal, magical, hard. Through it all my commitment has been to simplifying my life and living my values from a place of open heartedness and gratitude (not always easy). Today I urge you to reflect on what truly matters in life and then go do it, love it, protect it and honour it. We don’t know what tomorrow may bring, or if we’ll even get another tomorrow. Life is fragile and there are few certainties. If you love someone tell them, go surfing, take a day of solitude, smell the roses, lay with your puppies and smell their paws... Today I began an intensive 3 week Ayurvedic Detox journey, to greet the new year, to clear out the old energy and to honour my body and soul as I welcome personal growth and the evolution of my soul. What are you doing to honour yourself as we finish 2018? #onelife #hospital #scar #honouryourself #trust #nourishyourself #surgery #crossfit #cfgames #loveconnectionsimplicity #evolutionofyoursoul #byronbay #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • What does healthy truly look like? At 48 years young I am a 3 x CrossFit Games Champion, I have overcome chronic depression and alcoholism, a cancer scare and massive abdominal surgery almost 12 months ago, I ran 1000kms solo in June 2016 (for suicide and mental illness)...I’ve finished top 5 at 4 CrossFit Regionals - from 40-44 years of age...I go ok. I reckon healthy looks like me...yup. Strong, resilient, fit, happy, energised, passionate and positive AF. You can’t measure any of these qualities with a set of scales or a tape measure...and yet when you lay eyes on healthy, you know it intuitively. It’s hard to hide, yet sightings of it are seen less and less in the concrete jungle of modern life. Healthy, truly-deeply-healthy, is an art form, an exquisite tapestry of every daily choice and action you take, and have ever taken. Every 1% adds up. Every moment counts for everything. I don’t do hungry. I don’t do calorie restriction. I don’t do tired. I don’t do dehydrated. I do only what supports my health, fitness and wellbeing. I do it all intuitively and passionately. I am the result of 30 years of suffering, striving, failing, working, researching, seeking answers and never giving up. It’s never been easy, but it has been worth it. #resilientaf #healthylifestyle #byronbay #youcanhaveittoo #youreworthit #unicornstrong #findaway #overcome #soberlife #adventurebound #crossfit #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • My life. My hounds. My choices. I can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven, it all comes down to the choices I make in every moment of everyday. I choose health, vitality, strength, fitness, simplicity, adventure, puppies, peace, love, happiness, sun, sand, surf and positivity. In the last 48hours I have surfed, trained twice, run with puppies, 🏃‍♀️🦄🐶🐶 swam in the ocean, 🐳 jumped off the rocks at the beach 🏖 , watched a movie, done some programming, organised work, relaxed like a ninja, got som rays ☀️😎🏖, eaten magnificently healthy fresh food, drank kombucha, laughed so much...I’ve been living the life I want, with my priorities and my heart clearly in order.... 💜🙏🏻🦋 #onelife #liveyourlife #crossfit #byronbay #byronlife #ocean #firstthingsfirst #soberlide #goodlife #bealive #liveonpurpose #accessories #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • You don’t always know you’re doing ok until the storm has passed and you find yourself still standing, amidst the debris, integrity intact, exhausted yet strangely grateful for surviving yet another insane chapter of your life on planet earth...it is only once enough time stands between you and your ordeal that you the truth of your own strength and the beauty of your own growth is revealed little by little... I don’t find life easy, never have, but navigating these tough times, getting through hell, finding the courage to come out the other side yet again, is always potent with an energy of positivity, purity, simplicity and happiness... #noteasybutworthit #lifeonlifesterms #findaway #standstrong #keepturningup #itsworthit #bekind #integritymatters #happyunicornday #igotthis #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • The Hero’s Journey... Lobo & I. Same karma, different bodies! 🦄🐶 Lobo is the billion dollar baby the one that everything happens to. Me, I’m that guy too. Heros forge meaning, that’s how they cope, survive and ultimately thrive in the derailing chaos of life. The chaos in my life has escalated off the charts this year. In it all, through it all, to cope with it all, I’ve search tirelessly for meaning. Meaning turns unbareable into powerful, desperation into growth, weakness into strength. After each trial the Hero gains new knowledge and wisdom to prepare him/herself for the next trial. Eventually, after many trying years, the Hero will achieve what they went on the journey to find. Me, I’ve been searching for inner peace and simplicity my entire life. It was always waiting patiently inside of me, but the insane hurricane of life has had me in its grip...until now. Now I sit calm within the eye of the storm, untold chaos all around me, and yet I remain untouched and untouchable, the Hero’s destination is here, now. The gift of a lifetime of struggle has revealed itself...the chaos may continue, but the inner peace has taken powerful root.... #herosjourney #thechaosoflife #finaldestination #findaway #endurehurricanes #bekind #stillness #innerpeace #gratitude #calm #unicorn #unicornhappy #tattoo #lobolove #itsok #wodhopper #skinourishment

  • I can endure, overcome, struggle and adapt. I’ve definitely proven that. Now it’s time to invite in a new era in, perhaps an era symbolised by the qualities of vitality, simplicity, nourishment, love, gentleness and abundance. Yes. I like these new qualities. Just because I’m strong doesn’t mean I always have to fight for everything. I believe change is an inside job, so I will begin the process of change on my own internal landscape... that’s all we can really do, that’s all I can truly control, so I will work on my own internal operating system to transform my external life...I am my own experiment...I am evolving, I am doing my best and I am excited by the prospect of integrating a new energy into the fabric of my being.

  • 🙌🏼 #Repost @amandacrossfitallen ・・・ CrossFit teaches me everyday that I can endure, that I can carry heavy loads over great distances, that I am stronger and better than I know. Those lessons learned in the box carry over into every aspect of my life - work, relationships, family... How many times have I heard the sayings ‘it’s hard to beat the person who never gives up’, or ‘never give up’ or don’t give up until the miracle happens’ ...I use these sayings all the time, and yet it’s only when you’re utterly emptied of motivation, drive, hope, will, care and energy, that you come to understand the true power of those sayings. You literally can’t beat the person who never gives up. There are no failures for this person, only lessons...there is nothing to be ashamed of, only obstacles to overcome. There are no bad days, only days filled with more complex challenges. The opportunity to give up never ever goes away...I think about giving up all the time - little things and big things. It’s the simple solution...the quick fix, the easy out, the FEAR ‘Fuck Everything And Run’ response...I have never given up in a workout, and I haven’t given up on my business or myself yet either...I’ve definitely wanted to...the desire to walk away can be so compellingly palpable, but then I imagine how I would feel in 6-12 months from now, I imagine looking back and seeing that at the exact moment I gave up was when my Angels were about to lift me up and carry me to the next exquisite gift in my life...I think those dark moments when we’re poised to give up completely, are actually signals to hold true and strong to the cause, pivotal moments when seismic energetic shifts are taking place, moments when our Angels are rallying to carry us, rather than moments to lay down and remain down...if there are lots of dark moments you can be certain there are lots of Angels at work too. #nevergiveup #adaptordie #angelsarereal #fear #courage #overcome #crossfit #findaway #faithindarktimes #bekind #crossfitgirls #hardtokill #crossfitmasters #unicorn #unicornstrong #onlyfitgirls #skinourishment #wodhopper

  • I cannot begin to explain the emotional journey I’ve been on these last few weeks, months and really the last fucking year...seriously. I know life is all about obstacles, about overcoming, about integrity, finding a way, staying positive, turning up, doing the work, being grateful, controlling the controllables & putting yourself constantly in the solution, over & over again...but, fark. Enough. Surely? I’m a simple person. The things that fill me up & give me the deepest sense of purpose & joy do not cost a cent, they don’t involve lots of people, places or complicated things...they involve puppies, sunshine, the ocean, training hard, early to bed early to rise, laughing at everything, being honest, being kind, honouring my health, loving openheartedly, helping others do the same & living with integrity. Why is it then, that all I seem to do is front up to & overcome one complicated bone-crushing overwhelming challenge after another? I ponder this all the time... The answer I came up with is ‘just-because’ & because I ask to be strong, grateful & open hearted, & probably because my passion for making a difference & being the change requires that I must practice what I preach. The bigger the gift, the greater the struggle. My life is no fairytale, it’s real, gritty, bloody & big hearted. That’s my gift. I’m completely ok with it all, but what if I wasn’t ok with it...how stressful and pointless it would that be? Acceptance is the answer, I know the beast I am, I’m good with it, I know how to handle it...and so it can be beauty in dark places, a light for others to follow, that is my greatest hope and deepest belief! #bethechange #acceptance #findaway #allthetempobacksquats #unicornstrong #simplethings #woundedhealer #crossfut #wodhopper #skinourishment #pruvit #everyonepercent #igotthis #puppytherapy #bekind

  • Just when you think it’s the end of the world, you discover that it’s not actually the end, but a bright new fun beginning of another world! Doing what I can with what’s I’ve got, because I can, because life is about choices and perspective! “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin Challenging times right now, but I choose to blossom and flourish rather than wither and die...I’m not saying it’s easy, I’m just saying it’s worth it! #keepturningup #hardtokill #eternalsunshine #lemonstolemonade #happinessisachoice #fingertips #adaptovercome #play #findaway #wodhopper #skinourishment

  • So that just about does it. The closing of a chapter that marked an incredible 3 years for CrossFit Byron Bay’s current location. We are overwhelmed by the support received from near and far. Thank you all who stayed after the final WOD and took on the ginormous task of stripping and packing every scrap of everything that is us. Moving the gym could have been one of the most devastating times, instead it was a ridiculously fun adventure. They say many hands make light work, we say many hearts, souls and hands make miracles happen. The love here today was palpable. So many bodies doing what must be done. Words are not enough to express our gratitude and thanks to so many who gave their time selflessly. @crossfitballina @cf_hammertong CrossFit Byron Bay is on to bigger and better things. First we just have to find it. Hide and seek. What life is all about right, playing. #adapt #overcome #findaway #hideandseek #CFBB #tribe #wegotthis #skinourishment #crossfixe #gamesthlete #crossfitgames #masters🦄🙏🏼🌻

  • ClimbOn bar production in action with Polly herself! 🙌🏼 Using food grade + plant based ingredients in our products. Not cosmetic grade. Not naturally derived. Not synthetic. This means all of our ingredients are organic, unrefined and carry a high nutritional value (which means they can be edible). We work very hard to continue the practice of using food grade ingredients in our commitment to our customers, our integrity and our planet and its’ inhabitants. 🌎❤️
