BaiFit is excited to announce that our Head Coach & Founder Bailey O'Brien has qualified his first CrossFit SemiFinal, at the Oceania region event at the Torian Pro, from 26 - 28 May 2023.
The NOBULL CrossFit Games Semifinals is the third stage of the season, that will determine who will be invited to compete at the finals in Madison, Wisconsin, at the end of the season. The Oceania SemiFinal see's the top 30 individual athletes come together to test their fitness, however they aren’t merely the last qualifying stage before the 2023 NOBULL CrossFit Games; they’re also a chance for the CrossFit community to do what they do best: support and cheer on athletes from around the world vying for an invitation to the Games.
A lot of our BaiFit community has been a part of Bailey's journey over the past three years, training alongside and supporting him for countless sessions. For every 15s story you see on Instagram, there is another 5-6 hours of relentless work every single day in the BaiFit HQ of mobility, rehab, skills, engine, strength and more. It truly takes a village, and having the support of our BaiFit community means so much to Bailey and our team.
From Bailey, "I’ve always loved sports, especially team sports, but there is something special about taking complete ownership over your actions and knowing that your success or failure is entirely in your own hands with no one else to rely on. It tells you a lot about yourself and what you’re made of, as you get the same 24 hours as everyone else each day, so the only way to be successful, is to make choices that not many others are willing to make. I’m proud of the work I’ve put in, but you can bet your ass I ain’t stopping now.
Although I might compete as an individual, none of this would be possible without my team, and in particular my absolute # 1 @madisonhare who literally could not do any more if she tried. It’s so fun to share this journey with you and have you by my side every step of the way.
And to the community at @baifit_ ! You guys motivate me the most and I can’t wait to have a bunch of you in stands in Brisbane come May! We have such a cool culture that has formed so organically revolving around being a good person, and giving your best effort, and it’s crazy how this environment can push all us to new levels!"
The Torian Pro takes place from Friday 26 May - Sunday 26 May 2023. A large group of the BaiFit crew will be travelling north to support, but for those at home, all events will be streamed via the CrossFit YouTube channel.
