2013 AlphaFit Adventures

As we will soon bid 2013 farewell, we look back at what was a very exciting year. There were ups and downs, big and small kettlebell events, relocation and also consistent learning of new skills despite it all but our first priority in this post is to THANK all those who have contributed generously to AlphaFit to make us what we are today. Life is like a garden. You will only grow what you cultivate. Our members have cultivated a sense of belonging to the community, strength in supportive spirit, camaraderie and I can’t thank you enough for attracting more like-minded individuals into the gym. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (in advance to everyone) and enjoy looking back on 2013 with me as you scroll down the post.

As today marks the passing of a highly influential freedom fighter, Mr Nelson Mandela, here is one of his famous quotes which is one of my favourites. Rest in peace Sir.

August 2013 – Gullnaz Baig raised $4225 for Muhammadiyah Welfare home in the fasting month of Ramadhan so the boys have a little extra pocket money for Eid. She challenged herself to a total of 20mins Snatch without putting the 12kg kettlebell down! Great effort Naz and Jenn who joined to support her all the way through the 20mins mark!
