You’ve been CrossFitting for 1 year. How did you find out about CrossFit 42 South?
I’d heard about it through friends and the media.

Can you remember your first day at CF42s? What was the WOD?
I think the first WOD was a Thruster workout! The coaches created a great environment. I was sore the next few days to say the least.

What do you most enjoy about Crossfit 42 South?
Challenging myself to get better is the biggest thing. Plus It’s a fun place to work out!

What is your favourite, and least favourite movements or exercises?
Favourite is probably Deadlifts and Squats – least favourite is Kettle Bell workouts!

What’s the best CrossFit advice you’ve been given?
To eat Bacon.

Favourite memory at CF42s?
Probably completing the Thrustrer & Burpee workout in the Crossfit Open this year. That was tough… was stoked to get through it in one piece!

You always seem to be travelling the world – where have you been in 2014?
I spent a week in Cambodia earlier in the year working with a friend at an Orphanage; I helped him with fundraising and building. And I just got back from a month travelling around US and Canada.

Tell us a little more about yourself outside of Crossfit?
I work at Bendigo Bank in Hobart and also play music in two groups. One of them is a band “Dark Matter of Story Telling” that I play drums in. We have a chance to play at the Falls Festival this year if we can get enough votes on their website! I also play in a covers acoustic duo called “Sticks and Kane” that plays around the pubs in Hobart, weddings, functions etc.

Awesome! How can people vote for your band to play at Falls?
By voting for Dark Matter of Story Telling here. You can also check out our music on Facebook and youtube.

Has your training at CF42s made you a better drummer? Explain?
I guess your stamina is a better when you’re fit so maybe a bit.

You’ve told me many times that “…it’s not music unless it has a guitar in it.” What’s your favourite song to do a workout to?
Any Red Hot Chilli Peppers Stuff usually goes pretty well!

When I walk into the gym, the first person’s name I check on the whiteboard is?
Thomas McCulloch – And Tan when it comes to ring dips!

What’s the best/worst thing you have ever been called by a trainer?
I think Drummond called me Zane for little while there!!
