See anyone you know?

This taken from main page today!

On the weekend was my first gig being a HQ trainer and it was great!

I have always said you cannot beat volume of coaching as a mechanism for growth as a coach. I was able to see 46 people move for two days!

This combined with the great turnouts at CrossFit Townsville gets me excited about where I am going to be as an athlete and a coach in 6 months time.

Looking forward to Steve's preso too it will rock Townsville for sure.

The inaugural Primal Plate launching seminar.
A fun filled evening full of facts, controversy and most likely obesity.
Place: Annandale community centre, at Annandale Central shops, out near the ATM's next to florist
Time: Tuesday, Feb 23rd at 7:00pm
Cost: gold coin donation to help pay for the room.
Whole thing should go for anything around an hour (most likely) to 1 1/2 hours depending on questions/participation.
Presentation will be based around main causes of obesity (go on, guess...), physiology and metabolism, fats and cholesterol, and food QUALITY i.e. modern food agents.
For those who haven't heard me go on about diet or others from BSF/CF circles, then this presentation will be like NOTHING you have ever heard before.
Bring a friend and enjoy the evening, it will change your life!!

The Brett Drill

This is my ,soon to be famous, Brett Drill - hopefully it will improve double unders the world round.

This is me putting the drill to the test on OPT's "Flight Simulator" which is all the rage at SXF at the moment and has produced some exceptional dummy spits.(Language warning on the Dummy Spit vid - super funny though like old people on ice!)

The challenge is up, I did it in 12:38.
