People, for those keen to go over to Sydnery this year for the Regionals we are looking at getting a crew over, whether we have any of our own guys competing or not.
The experience of the games is one for you guys to check out for yourselves as all of Australia and New Zealand's best come together to compete over the weekend of May 27th to 29th to find the top athletes to travel to the states to compete in the world games.
So if your keen let us know as we are pricing up everything now and should be able to get a pretty good group discount on airfares and accommodation.
Also, if you are keen on putting your hand up for the team events let me know as we are hoping to get a crew over to compete at the regionals. Three males and three females will be selected to represent REX in Sydney.
I know a lot of you want to compete as individuals at the Sectionals, which is what you need to do anyway in order to qualify for the regionals, individual or team.
Not long now guys. Only a couple of weeks till the first WOD and all that hard training over the last year or so will be put to the test. For you just wanting to experience it, get involved as it will be for everyone of all levels of fitness.
More soon guys.......
G'day guys been a big few weeks with the In House Comp and the efforts of all with their training. Great Work!!!!
Sectionals is only a few weeks away and we are hosting a Sectionals WOD in early April. Stay tuned for more soon. Should be good with other affiliates coming to REX to compete. We are looking at a Saturday at this stage to host our WOD. The other affiliates will be hosting a WOD each week as well so the opportunity is there to go to their boxes to compe
Don't worry everyone is going to have the opportunity to complete the sectionals WODs, if they wish as we will be running each WOD at the box every week for the duration of the open.
NOW is the time to let us know if you are keen to travel to the U.S. for the 2011 GAMES in late July. We will be traveling over and if there are others keen it would be good to have a REX crew to fly the flag.
Same, Same for the Regionals guys. They will be in late May and again we are hoping to get a crew over to fly the REX flag. Further confirmation of dates for the Regionals shortly, but looks to be the last weekend in May.
Anyhow great job by all with your training and I lastly want to welcome all our new members who are now part of the REX family. Good to have you on board.

Well done to everyone who competed in the REX second IN HOUSE COMP. Considering what came out of the HOPPER the efforts of all athletes is commendable.
Thanks also to the huge spectator turn out throughout the course of the day. It was good to see a lot of our CrossFit and Boot Camp crew come down and support their fellow athletes.
Again all of it wouldn't be possible without the support of you guys and it shows how strong the REX community is.
Congratulations to Ange and G the 'TOP DAWGS' for the second IN HOUSE COMP. Great effort by both and all that hard training is definitely paying off leading into the Sectionals starting soon. Congrats also to Sue and Aaron who took out the title in the scaled division.
To all the trainers, Aimee, both Debs, Clarky, Robbo, thanks guys for judging and participating in the competition WODS plus Trainers WOD. Great support and encouragement provided to the athletes, which I know spurred them to achieve great times and results.
To those that I have missed, thanks for your help guys. There are a number of players behind the scenes that help us out whether it be cleaning up, taking photos and video footage, cooking the BBQ or whatever the case may be.
FROM HERE WHERE TO???.
Well the Sectionals is upon is in approx 1 month and that will continue over a 6 week period.
