Rob Roy Glacier

Rob Roy Glacier is a small hanging glacier in the Southern Alps of New Zealand's South Island. It is located within the Mt Aspiring National Park.

A one hour drive from Wanaka brings you to the Raspberry Creek car-park. After a 15 minute valley walk you cross the West Matukituki River into beech forest as the track climbs through a small gorge along the Rob Roy Stream, then into alpine vegetation at the head of the valley, with amazing views of the Rob Roy Glacier.

Mt. Iron

Mt. Iron provides one of New Zealand’s most popular walks. It’s certainly not tallest, steepest or hardest but the view over Wanaka town is not to be missed. Highly recommend this short walk on one of your rest days

And if you’re really feeling up for a challenge, have a crack at beating Glen’s PB running to the top.

Daily WOD

With all this action on the cards, you could be forgiven for thinking the Summer AMRAP 6 is all play and no work. You would be very, very wrong. A daily WOD will take place at the box with none other than Darren Ellis, and while his programme is sure to send you to some dark places, he’s there to ensure you’re moving well and pushing yourself to the limit. 

Movement/Mobility Clinic

As you well know, moving properly and eating well is essential to CrossFit and it’s something we can always work on and improve, no matter our level,

That’s why we’re including a 'Movement & Mobility Clinic’ with Darren Ellis. This is your chance to ask questions and learn from one of the best.

 

Darren Ellis

Darren discovered CrossFit in 2007, during his Masters degree in Exercise Physiology, as he was always researching the latest info on training and nutrition methods.  The simple yet effective philosophy had him hooked and 3 months later opened the first CrossFit gym in the country.

As the sport of CrossFit grew, Darren competed at the Regional’s from 2009-2012 as an individual, the CrossFit Games affiliate competition in 2010 and in 2015 qualified in second place for the 40-44yr Masters division of The Reebok CrossFit Games.

He was a weekly guest presenter on The Fit Club tv show in 2012, putting top NZ athletes through their paces, and offering up nutrition and workout tips.

Darren also collaborates with Jami Tikkanen (coach of Annie Thorisdottir) on The Training Plan, creating online CrossFit programming and lifestyle hacks for athletes.

Before university and opening CrossFit NZ and Reebok CrossFit 09, Darren spent 6 years working and travelling overseas working for minimum wage as a bartender, bouncer, tour guide, tractor driver, cook and divemaster, and visiting places like Congo, Ethiopia, Yemen and Guatemala; which found him home to dodgy parasites and 10kg underweight, but with an ability to order food in Swahili, Turkish and Arabic.   Needless to say he loves travel and the idea of sharing highlights of his native country with others, as well as fitness knowledge is very exciting for him.
