Training Whangarei

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

I'm just wondering if there are any Whangarei peeps on here? I'd love to have a training partner but unfortunately there aren't too many women in Whangarei training for powerlifting! About me - I'm 29, training twice a week for my first powerlifting comp in April 2015. Would love to hear from people with the same interest as me! Or even just Whangarei gym people!

Leah :-)

Hey Leah,

Welcome...   there's a small but strong powerlifting group in Northland - check out the Northland Powerlifting Association, which has some really great people.

You can find them:

Northland boasts WORLD CHAMPION powerlifter Trish Muldrock http://www.nzherald.co.nz/northern-advocate/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503450&objectid=11333761 

as well as others like Elisha, Dean, Kane, and Joseph Whittaker... all of whom compete at National level. 

Cheers.

Thanks teamfatboy, I've been to a comp here and know most of the people you mentioned, and yes - Trish is a machine! Unfortunately they are spread all around Northland. I'm hoping for someone who trains regularly in Whangarei. Doesn't have to be a powerlifter or wanting to compete, but a general interest in the three main lifts would be great.

Anyway, I suspect I am a little bit wishful here! Maybe I should just move to a bigger city :-)

Yep, I only realised what you were after, after my post <doh>

I don't know of too many Whangarei-based people on here, competitive powerlifter or just three-lift specialist. Bit of a shame, really..
