Inā kē te miharo o te ekenga panuku o Luke Fiso i te ao CrossFit. Mai anō i ngā tau e toru noa kua whakaingoatia koia te tāne nakawhiti rawa o Aotearoa i tēnei tau. Otira, huhua ana ngā taitara kua riwha i aia.

I ngā wā o mua i tākaro whutupaoro a Luke Fiso, engari, ināianei kua whaowhao he ingoa mōna i te ao o CrossFit.

“I looked up CrossFit Games and saw Rich Froning and thought I could beat him, but ever since then I've been trying my best to get there and I'm finding out at each stage, like The Open at then regionals that you have to work really really hard and so hence having to pretty much make my life revolve around it so that I can fit in training and recovery.”

Mai i taua wā kua wikitoria i aia ngā whakataetae nui i Aotearoa nei, i wini hoki aia i te CrossFit Open i tēnei tau, otira, kua eke ia ki te puna toa 20 o te Pacific.

“I really am quite surprised but I had a good level of fitness before going into CrossFit and that's helped me a lot.”

E kainamu mai ana te kōwhiringa e kī a nei ko Te Open nā reira kei te kaha whakapakari, whakangungu i te tinana.

“Straight after regionals I had about 2-3 weeks off really like training and trying to stay away actually but then after that I've gone back to double sessions probably 2 to 3 times a week and then training 6 out of 7 days a week.”

He 26 ōna tau, koia te kaiako matua otira te kaiwhakahaere o te whare hākinakina Instinct ki Pōneke, a, ko te whai ināianei mōna kia whai waahi ki te whakataetae matua ki Amerika.
