Hi from Bar-belle


Hi All
Bar-belle (Rachel) here..thought I'd better introduce myself since I've been checking out the powerhouse forum for a little while on the quiet :uhh: and have met a few forum members recently :yes:
My hubbie (Steak) and I run Coast Barbell Club in Whangaparaoa a small powerlifting and strength training gym. I am a newbie to the sport of powerlifting but think I have found my groove in this cos I'm really enjoying my training. This was cemented after watching the Auckland Champs recently.

Just finished Sheiko 29. After a bit of nudging in the right direction.. my goal this year is to compete in the Auckland Novice Comp in October. Bit of work ahead of me though :sport-smiley-003:

I'm also mum to our 5 kids, help Steak run our other business and work part-time as a midwife.

I have a journal at NZBB but will post here as well, as there is a wealth of knowledge and experience at powerhouse and I'm keen to learn and share.

Welcome - it's always good to have another civilizing influence on the forum.

Hi Bar-belle welcome to the forum, like T said pretty helpful lot on here. Hope you do well in your goals, and with what is happening at CBC and else where Miada I am sure they will be achieved in no time.

Enjoy what is on here it may take a while to sift through might have to ask Mr S for short cuts.

Stay Strong
