She will once again advance to the CrossFit Regionals to be held in Wollongong Friday 26th May – Sunday 28th May.
We’ll have a huge crew heading up to cheer and support, we’d love to get as many people there as we can!
The second athlete from 2600 to progress to the next stage of competition is
Kai who finished 36th in world (masters)
Kai will now complete four set workouts over a weekend this month fighting to earn himself place at the Games.
Good luck to these two phenomenal athletes.
A big thank you to the 2600 community for supporting me throughout the masters qualifying workouts. Taking time out of your day means a lot guys.

ANZAC DAY Tuesday 25th April. We will run two Tier 1 classes. 7am & 8am.
CrossFit 2600 not only came highly recommended to Mez, the welcome she received meant the gym has been added to her long list of places she’s called home – including London, Dubai, Cape Town, Dubbo and Edinburgh. "I had heard from many people in the Crossfit community around Australia that 2600 had the best coaches in the ACT.” She’s also an advocate of the Nike approach to CrossFit:
“Just do it, don't think you need to be fit to start Crossfit, everything that we do is scalable to a level that everyone can still complete.”#canberra #crossfit #crossfit2600 #kingston #yeahshesquats #firefighter #countrygirl
Then a max plank hold to finish. My money was on the girls but it came down to Peter and Clayton with Clayton claiming the title and winners 2600 socks !!! He then held on to the 10 minute mark for fun😳😳#crossfit2600 #fitness #canberra #crossfit #stopflexingkai
Huge turnout for the Friday holiday class!!!! A spicy 30 min EMOM to earn some chocolate tokens for the weekend. #crossfit #crossfit2600 #fitness #canberra #Easterworkout #holidayfun
We thought you might be interested to know a bit more about of fabulous coaches, they are a huge part of the community here at CrossFit 2600 and we appreciate their dedication to coaching and make our box a great place to train. RENAE aka CHALKIE: renae's bar muscle-up dismount is world famous in Kingston and a nod to her 10 years as a gymnast, but CrossFit has given her more than just an opportunity to stretch her gymnastics skills competitively again. What gets her up to coach on those early mornings is helping Team 2600 learn a new skill, particularly gymnastics. "Nothing beats the smile on someone's face when they achieve something they thought they never would." Like everyone mastering CrossFit movements, there are those she likes less (burpee, thruster, wall ball) and those she likes more (probably bar muscle-ups or anything upside down) & those she struggled to achieve: "It took me a long time master butterfly pull-ups, I seriously looked like an epileptic fish out of water." She found CrossFitting during her military career. As an Army Combat Fitness Leader with a few personal training clients on the side, she had heard some "negative things" about the sport. Not one to be told by others she decided to give it a go. "I wanted to experience it myself before forming negative opinions. I stayed because I liked the inclusive nature of the approach and the fact that everyone is so supportive of each other. Only in CrossFit is the person last to finish often cheered for the loudest". Since then it's been full steam ahead for Renae, whose dependence on the white stuff has earned her the nickname Chalkie. She's a valued member of the 2600 coaching team and an asset to the gym.
