Great job on the CrossFit Games Open workouts so far. Yesterday saw most folks hit 13.3. Everyone’s favourites; WallBalls, Double Unders and Muscle Ups. Great to see so many make it to the Double Unders and Steve and Woodrow crack out some Muscle Ups. Lots of “Karen” (150 Wall balls for time) PR’s and some Double Under PR’s as well.

BaD As IV Open registration goes public today so sign up fast before it sells out. Remember you need to pay to secure your spot. Get in quick 🙂


We say goodbye to Lauren this week, it has been great to have her here as she prepared for and performed in the Capital E Arts Festival. We hope to see her again either on this side of the Tasman or in Oz.

Here is what she has to say about her time with the MaD CrossFit community.

I was brought to Wellington for a brief period for work in October 2012. At that point I was a CrossFit coach at CrossFit Townsville and I was interning to be apart of the CrossFit Level 1 seminar staff. Knowing I was going to be back in Wellington for a 2 month period in 2013 over the CrossFit Open in March, I was hoping to find a CrossFit box that could be my home away from home. I found MaD CrossFit after a not so welcoming session at another box in Wellington.

MaD was instantly welcoming in an email, which was followed by a friendly introduction to the other members in my first session. Matt, Donna and the team at MaD have been so generous with their knowledge and their support. The coaching is great, the programming considered and the environment so positive and friendly. I have enjoyed every session.
I can’t thank MaD enough for making my stay in Wellington so comfortable and for pushing me to new PBs. MaD CrossFit became my home away from home, I will miss them and will be back to visit any time I’m in Wellington.
Lauren you are welcome back anytime.
