Congratulations to everyone who competed. Even if you did not podium or make the state team, you should still feel an extreme sense of pride and accomplishment for not only what you did on the weekend and via video submission, but during the online too…man those were some gnarly workouts but you pushed through and got them done! You found strengths and weaknesses not only physically but mentally too and the growth that comes from that is pretty freaking huge as an athlete, competitor and human.
We mixed it up, tested you in ways you may not have been used to or felt completely comfortable with or even understood at the time, but that’s what it is all about and I’d hope that looking back at them you can see what those tests really were all about.
A bit of insight for you, our workouts are created as a whole series at the beginning of the year, not just each time the next stage of the competition comes along. Each stage is part of a puzzle I guess you could say, each stage covers a different and new kind of test….it is all extremely thought through and actually tested by hundreds of people through programming (Yes, many who do Raw Strength programming…even Project X) test your workouts without knowing at the time haha…but it gives us the opportunity to see times, responses etc so by the time these workouts get to you, they are pretty spot on!
I could not be happier or prouder of firstly you guys as athletes, the way you carried yourself, the respect you showed to event organisers, volunteers, each other and yourself! Your appreciation and all the awesomeness that oozes out of you! You have all been an absolute pleasure for Rob, myself and our Leadership team. We feel extremely lucky and privileged to be a part of your life and be here to experience your incredible achievements within our sport!
To the MHQ team! Wow, you guys really are incredible. For only 18 mths in, some of you even newer than that, you guys put on some great shows. The vibe, the feedback and appreciation I have received reflect the incredible job our Leadership team are doing!
You know, these guys get bombarded (especially in the last few weeks) with my msgs, emails, posts, rules, regulations, questions, my homemade tutorials🤦♀️, silly jokes and general ball breaking antics. (I promise I do I help as much as possible to take the load off haha) but these guys just buckle down and get it done and continue to produce events of the awesome MastersHQ standard. We might not be perfect but we are sure as hell are always striving to improve but these guys are absolutely killing it and I can not thank them enough!
So next is the Worlds/Nationals….this event is going to be freaking epic and we can’t wait. I have built a website for you guys that includes info and packages for accomodation, location details, rego, about Logan and surrounds, extended holiday options, you name it, it has it. We have Qantas sponsorship deals in the works to so hold out a week or so to book your flights. Oh and for those bringing kids to this event we have a massive kids room for Friday and Saturday (Sunday is offsite) This kids room is like an actual kinder/school room with loads of fun activities and fully equipped with staff to take care of you little ones if you want a break etc. So, so amazing that I just needed to share that part now!!
The support MastersHQ has is truly amazing. We had 100’s of volunteers put thier hands up to help with these!! The appreciation and gratitude we have for those guys is impossible to put into words. They help create an amazing experience and it would not matter how many hours went in to planning and organising of these events if we didn’t have that support. Without those guys it would feel stressful and everything would most probably fall to shit, so for me and us as a state, we are extremely lucky to have these guys, many of them being ones who travel miles and come back over and over again just to be a part of it all. Thank you to our media team for the awesome Photos and MC’s also. You can find your state pics on the Masters HQ – Media Team facebook page
Thanks again from the bottom of my heart for being so amazing. I know I’ve said it before but you guys really are a pleasure. Please always feel free to shoot me though anything you think can improve what we do…this is how we continually get better and I want you to feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and reflections with me. It is extremely important and we will always take it into account and try to use it towards the growth and improvement of MastersHQ as a whole
For those who are not progressing and for those who are, Late Jan/early Feb 2020 will be a state partner comps. We will confirm exact date/location soon but lock out both the last weekend of Jan and first weekend of Feb for this!!
Lastly thank you to all of our sponsors, Major and state sponsors. Thank you also to our Chiro’s, Physio’s and massage therapists! You guys help to ensure our athletes are looked after. We are extremely appreciative of all you support!
