January 2019 Best on Ground

Nath’s dedication and commitment to training has been outstanding despite possibly needing a finger amputated due a Rugby incident last year. A pretty scary thing to have to consider doing for anyone but Nath remained as calm as a cucumber when he informed the coaches that it may be necessary. Despite his injury, Nath kept…

December 2018 Best on Ground

Hammer Athletic’s other physio, Brando aka ”The Baker” (in the basketball world) has been working his arse off for the past few of months. Brando enjoys lifting some heavy tin but what really gets him going is doing the extra’s on his arms. Brando’s probably the leanest bloke in the gym with his body fat…

August Best on Ground

Earlier this year Izzy finished her first Marathon (42km – she’s crazy!) and despite her hectic marathon running schedule she still performed consistently well in the gym. However, since running really long distances hasn’t been the main focus Izzy’s recent results were nothing short of outstanding. Here’s just a taste of some of her results,…

July Best on Ground

Paul Leitch… Incredible. Just one word to describe how far Pauly has come since walking through the doors at Hammer Athletic almost 3 years ago (how time flies!). Pauly’s commitment to training is exceptional but his ability to throw great quality banter with everyone (especially Matt, his boutique gym & general life struggles) is pure…
