    • Sporting students staying motivated during Lockdown (Part 3)
      • 13 Apr 2020
      • College Sport Wellington
      • What does the lockdown mean for sporting students? How has it affected them and what are they doing to stay fit and motivated? Two more local sports students are Toby Cook (Wellington College), who spent the summer preparing to travel with his school’s rugby party to Argentina and Jacob Madigan (St Patrick’s College, Kilbirnie) who was winding up his summer sport and about to start his winter code. We asked them what they are doing during lockdown: Jacob Madigan in action for St Patricks Kilbirnie (Photo by Hamish Wareham) College Sport Wellington: Please tell us what you were preparing for before the Lockdown? Toby: As I was a part of the Wellington College touring rugby squad to Argentina, 30 of us boys had been training pretty hard from the end of last year. Although three weeks before the lockdown started we were informed the trip had been cancelled, we then shifted our focus to training for the regular season which is also currently at a standstill. Jacob: I was involved with the St Pats First XI cricket team and we were nearing the end of the season with only one game left plus a T20 tournament during summer tournament week. On that same weekend we had our first preseason First XI football games up in Palmerston North, which got cancelled CSW: what you are doing to keep fit and train? Toby: Our coaches and trainers from school have been great in sending out information so you can train no matter what equipment you have. My sister was also able to bring home an erg which is a welcome change from running. As well as trying to get a session in each day I’m also trying to keep up my basic skills. Jacob: Our football coach gave us a programme to do over the lockdown period which means hopefully we can be fit going into the season. I have also been doing some technical work for football and cricket in my back garden and at the park. CSW: Please share a lockdown sports practice or training tip for your school mates and others out there in the same situation? Toby: I normally try to complete my training in the morning as I find it gets it out of the way and sets you up for the rest of the day. Another thing I’ve found helpful is our trainer turned our sessions into a competition and we have to record and send in our training and time which keeps us accountable. Jacob: Keep doing something relating to your sport. It is hard in these times to keep motivated when you can’t actually go and train and play but if you keep doing fitness or technical work, then you will be good to go when the season comes. Also track your times of what you are doing and compare them to a friend and see who can do better as a bit of motivation. CSW: Are you in contact with your sporting friends about the above and are you motivating each other remotely? Toby: As above, the majority of the squad have been videoing and sending through their workouts to our chat. This has been great as it allows us to see what everyone else is doing to motivate each other, the videos also keep us accountable for the work we are doing. Jacob: Yes, I’ve been talking to the boys about how they are going and a few of them send me daily photos of them doing the exercises. I have also been talking to friends outside of school who are doing their own fitness work just to see what they are doing and how they are going. -Story courtesy of College Sport Media The post Sporting students staying motivated during Lockdown (Part 3) appeared first on College Sport Wellington.

    • Sporting students staying motivated during Lockdown (Part 2)
      • 7 Apr 2020
      • College Sport Wellington
      • Connor Lusty bowling in the Boys Premier Youth Cricket competition What does the lockdown mean for sporting students? How has it affected them and what are they doing to stay fit and motivated? Following on from our catch-up with two Queen Margaret College rower Mollie Nicol and Wellington Girls’ College runner Emma Douglass HERE, we check in with two local male athletes to see what they are doing to keep fit and motivated. St Pat’s Silverstream sprint champion Oliver Krijnen and Onslow College First XI cricketer Connor Lusty. We put a few questions to each below. College Sport Wellington: Please tell us what you were preparing for before the Lockdown? Ollie: Before the whole lockdown happened I was preparing for the second day of the Wellington Junior Champs and looking ahead to the North Island Champs in Hamilton which would have been the last big event to close the season off. Connor: When the lockdown started our cricket team had just finished our Saturday competition games for the term, finishing with 3 wins and 4 losses to qualify for the 6-team competition for term 4 for the first time since 2016. We had been starting to prepare for our Summer tournament Week, which for cricket is the Hunt Trophy three-day Twenty20 tournament. I’m also a part of our Onslow College 1st XV Rugby team and I was about to start attending pre-season training the week that the lockdown was put in place. CSW: what you are doing to keep fit and train? Ollie: To keep fit and keep my body active at the moment I’m doing home exercises like plyometrics and lots of core work as well as doing a lot of power work to try and get stronger When I can get out, depending on the weather, I normally try to work on my block starts and my technique in the front yard or at the park close by. Connor: I’ve been trying to stay as fit and active during this period of lockdown as possible. Cricket is my number one sport, and being a spin bowler I’ve found myself going to the nets quite often just to have a bowl, to stay as fit and to keep my training levels up. I have also been regularly going for runs, not only to stay active and keep a routine going, but as we have been advised by our 1st XV coaches to stay fit and keep some sort of fitness programme going. I have been running up Mt Kaukau most days. CSW: Please share a lockdown sports practice or training tip for your school mates and others out there in the same situation? Ollie: Make sure you are drinking enough water as with nothing to do sometimes I forget to drink and this affects my energy levels greatly. Another tip I have is getting your family to do it with you for example my brother and I have been working out together and we do core work and simple things together like push ups and burpees and whatever else we can think of. Really make sure you are eating right. Connor: If there is any tip I can give to anyone out there, it’s just to stay fit and active! During times like these it’s often hard to maintain the same diet as to what you’d normally have, but staying fit during this lockdown time is something that is in your control. Challenge yourself, make yourself work hard. Go for a run, go kick a football, go to the cricket nets. Do what makes you happy and active! CSW: Are you in contact with your sporting friends about the above and are you motivating each other remotely? Ollie: I’ve been in contact with most of my training partners and friends checking up on them. We want to see how each other are doing and to share exercises to make sure all of us are staying in shape and healthy. Connor: We have a Facebook Messenger chat going for our 1st XV team, which a lot of the boys are using to send through their progress of either just running/fitness or strength and conditioning. By doing that, I believe we are motivating one another. On our 1st XV group page, we also have our assistant coach Dean Gorrie figuring out programmes which are best suited to us all, and reminders to stay fit.

    • The WTMC takes over Island Forks Hut
      • 29 Mar 2020
      • Wellington Tramping and Mountainneering Club
      • It didn’t take long for me to realize, on my second weekend back in Wellington, that I did not have the fitness to tackle the Mid-Otaki trip I had put on the schedule. Emily wisely suggested Island Forks instead, and I adopted the idea as my own. We had a romantic drive from Wellington to ... Read more

    • ITHH - Nicks experience 2018
      • 31 Jan 2019
      • Wellington Boxing Gym
      • Nick Gubb stepped in the ring for ITHH 2018 and he’s back again for 2019! Below is his story and how ITHH and boxing has changed his life… <figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " > When my previous boss first told me about IT Heavy Hitters, I shrugged it off with a casual "Yeah, Right" When my boss explained a bit about her journey and what was involved in the lead up, and the positive impact it had on the participants I became a little more interested, and it was for a damned good cause. For a bit of quick background, I've never been the sporty guy. Never been naturally talented or co-ordinated. I stopped playing team sports when I was 14 (I was never a good goalie anyway), and never looked back. Neither did my waistline. When I signed up I was the heaviest I'd ever been. At the team selection day I clocked in at just over 140Kg. I knew it was going to be a hard slog, and I wasn't prepared for what I would eventually get out of the journey. When the sessions started at WBG, I quickly realised it wasn't going to be a walk in the park. The BoxFit sessions were gruelling, my fitness was awful, and my punches were as co-ordinated as a drunken donkey on rollerblades. I knew I had a hell of a long way to go, and if I was going to take this seriously I would need all the help and training I could get. I quickly signed up and started attending extra BoxFit sessions. The Saturday runs were tough, and it wasn't long before I was dealing with shin-splints and walking after only a few hundred meters. Then it all turned a corner. The support of the amazing Blue Team, and the coaches really helped to crank things up a notch Jeremy (part of the ITHH coaching team) told me to distract myself when running, think about complicated maths problems to get your mind off the struggle, focus on your breathing instead of your legs, all it is, is putting one foot in front of the other, and how hard is that? Little by little, I started improving. I could go for a bit longer, a bit faster. It didn't seem like much of an improvement at the time, but looking back, it was compounding quickly. Chris (also part of the ITHH coaching team) took every opportunity to give me tips on where my feet should end up after moving in a certain way, or what my head should be doing to avoid certain strikes. His relentless positivity and enthusiasm for everyone was always welcome. David's (part of the ITHH coaching team) "tough love" approach was a perfect counter, and the push I needed when not feeling completely up to it. Getting over a cold? "Glove up Princess. Everyone that steps into the ring has to give it 100%". Always there to push you a little harder on your last stair set, or the last leg of the Te Pa Classic. Also bear crawls. So many f%&#ing bear crawls. Getting my eating habits was another hurdle I knew I'd have to clear. I knew the sugar and beer was off the menu, but I managed to pick up a whole tack of good information from the Nutritionist, Supplement Specialist, and Recovery session we had. Going through a shared experience with a complete bunch of strangers, it was amazing how close the team got, and how supportive of each other they were. On more than one occasion I was dead last at a group run, when the entire team who had already finished started running alongside me in support. While at first I felt a little guilty they had all done more than what they needed to do to encourage me, I was blown away by the good vibes and happy faces when I crossed the finish line. These people weren't just strangers who also happened to sign up, they were friends. Asher, I think I spent more time with you than I did with my wife. Between the BoxFit classes, Skills classes, Sparring sessions and one on one's at one point I clocked up 9 sessions in a week. The time and effort you invested into this was incredible. I'll always remember one of your comments during a one on one, you said that "When I watched you walk in for the first time, I would have never expected you would throw a punch like the one you just did". That got me buzzing, it was a confirmation for all the hard work I'd put in, and an awesome recognition of how far I had come. I had a smile on my face for weeks after that! I weighed in at 119.6Kg, over 20Kg lighter than I was 14 weeks ago Weigh in night appeared all too quickly, and it was finally a chance to have some tangible evidence of the blood, sweat and tears spilled. I weighed in at 119.6Kg, over 20Kg lighter than I was 14 weeks ago, and under the 120Kg mark for when the weights were read out on fight night. I was stoked. On the night itself, I was lucky in that I got a match from the Red Team. Getting into the Ring on the night wasn't the ultimate goal I had started out with, but it was the icing on the cake, and a chance to show off all the hard work I'd done over the last 14 weeks. The butterflies were out in force, the nerves were there, but they were calmed by the work we had all done. I'm glad I soaked up the atmosphere as I entered the ring, waved to the family and friends, and enjoyed my song. Once in the ring, the tunnel vision set in, the crowd disappeared, and the noise faded. All that was there was my opponent and I, and the occasional shout from my corner. The 3 rounds flew past, I felt pumped, like I could go for 3 more! While I didn't win my match, I did make it to the end, and had a split decision to boot. It may not have been a win, but it was still a victory. Full props go out to Craig "The Punisher" Marshal for putting in the hard yards, and taking the win.   <figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " >  For those who think it's just a Charity Boxing Match, you're wrong. This has been an absolute life-changing experience, and one of the coolest things I've ever done. How many people can say they've stepped into the Boxing Ring in front of a crowd of over 1000 people? I'm down 20Kg, made some amazing new friends, have a whole new level of energy to keep up with the family. Considering the Fighter stand-down, I'll still be back next year just to make the journey again. #BlueCrew

    • WBG ON A BOAT!

      • WBG ON A BOAT - CELEBRATING OUR MEMBERS AND TRAINERS This year WBG decided not to have a Christmas party in the busiest time of year, but instead decided to do something different and have a late party. Of course a party, to celebrating the members that make the gym, the trainers that put the hard work in and of course another successful year of business. So Friday 6th of April, 61 WBG members, trainers and friends set sail on the Sweet Georgia for a night of epic madness.  Hurricanes played on the boat, many delish starters, BBQ dinner, pirates, jelly fish, sea man haha, mermaids, captains, selfies galore and many striped tops later the boat was buzzing! Amazing thing too was Quincy wasn't late, he 'didn't miss the boat' lol #NameShame From WBG, we hope you enjoyed the night. Asher and myself cannot thank you enough for choosing us as your fitness/boxing home, building the welcoming and no ego culture that every hypes over, supporting the charities events we are part of and for giving back to the smallest but coolest little gym in Wellies. WBG is truly built by the members that create the space :) To the trainers Thomas, Haile, Ice, Akeyla and Dave, we cannot thank you enough either. We appreciate all the hard work you put in and for bringing your own unique flavours to the space.  We look forward to celebrating with all again as we approach our 2 year anniversary - How can we top this though?
