We still have lots happening at MolyFit, and the gym continues to grow. Welcome to all our new members, both in Milton CrossFit and Milton Weightlifting Club; we’re glad to have you with us!
Our gym fit-out continues as well; it seems like a job that will never end but the results make the work worthwhile. Our pride and joy last week was the replacement of all the old metal-halide ceiling lights with brand new 150W LED SKYPADs!
Say goodbye to the dull, yellow-greenish glow of ye olden times, and say hello to 21,000 lumens (per SKYPAD!) of sunny white happiness! These beauties will really shine some light on your CrossFit and Oly technique, and there’ll be no escaping Dayn’s and Coral’s attention now!!
Added to that, we have shiny new lights out in the car park so together with the new ceiling LEDs inside, we’ll be bright and alert and ready to train happily inside and out, through those otherwise-dreary winter mornings and evenings.
Last night was nice and busy with both the CrossFit and Weighlifting crew getting into the lifting spirit.
You can see more of the action from the (amazingly well-lit!) photos in our newest gallery.
Milton CrossFit is off and running as we complete 18.1, the first round of the 2018 CrossFit Open. This year, the CrossFit Open runs for 5 weeks from February 22 to March 26, and Dayn (shown here swinging off our new rings rig!) will be coaching you through the WODs to help you keep up with this fun and challenging event.
You can read more about these and other events on our MolyFit events page, and you’ll be able to view photos after each event on our MolyFit gallaries page. Have fun!
We had a cracker of a day on Sat December 2 with Milton Crossfit and members of the Milton Weightlifting Club participating in the 2017 CrossFit Liftoff.
As you’ll see from the photos, it was a great event. Everyone had a great time and there were some great results and PBs including:
- Snatch PBs for Bryce (82kg, up from 80), Ollie (65kg, up from 60), Jaime (82kg, up from 80) and Dayn (100kg, up from 95)
- Clean and jerk PBs for Ollie (77.5kg), Jaime (103kg), Goose (120kg) and Annie (82.5kg).
- The highest lifting total in the women was for Annie with a 62.5kg Snatch and a 82.5kg C&J.
- Highest total in the men was Michael with a 110kg Snatch and a 135kg C&J
- Highest overall Sinclair went to Mitch with his 105kg Snatch and 130kg C&J.
- For the WOD (and wasn’t there some soreness the following week!!) the highest male scores were from Mitch, then Goose, then Dayn. The highest female score was for Annie; we didn’t get much more on that front since not many females wrote down their scores.
- The overall WOD winners (calculated by combining the points from the Oly lifts and the WOD) were Mitch in the men’s section, and Annie in the women’s section.
Top efforts and lots of fun! Check out the photos from the day!
The Liftoff was followed by a nice little BBQ out on the loading dock.
You can be certain that we’ll follow up in the new year with a swag of other competitions (both weightlifting and CrossFit), together with lots more on-dock gatherings.
Thanks to everyone that joined in. CU for the next one!!
We’ll be missing a few of our regular lifters this Saturday as our Masters contingent takes part in the 2017 Australian & Oceania Masters Weightlifting Championships, Pacific Rim Masters Tournament and Masters World Cup. The events will take place during the period 27th – 30th October, 2017 at the Mantra on View Hotel at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Australia.
The Australian Weightlifting Federation, a member of the International Weightlifting Federation and Oceania Weightlifting Federation will host the event which is expected to attract over 400 competitors from Pacific Rim nations.
It’s going to be a big four days! Good luck to all the lifters who will be competing!

So we planned [edit: and did!] to open on October 3. But before that could happen, we needed to tidy up here and there… 38 cubic meters of skip bins later, we were done! A big thanks to all who helped! Here are some of the survivors!
