Rumble by name, but explosive by nature.

The ‘Rumble in the South West’ competition showcased some extreme levels of fitness last Saturday as 31 teams from Wales and England descended on the Crossfit Pembrokeshire gym in Haverfordwest.

Athletes from the host club were joined by entrants from Tenby Project Fitness, Llanelli, Swansea, Caerphilly and Bristol to take part in either the scaled (beginner and intermediate) or RX (elite) categories.

Each team went through three gruelling work outs each, with local competitors doubling up as officials, and the top three teams in each category then moved onto the finals.

“The day went perfectly to plan,” said Crossfit Pembrokeshire owner Sam Feneck.

“We ran ahead of schedule and everyone loved the challenging work outs that were programmed, and there was a great buzz throughout the day.”

Indeed, a large crowd was gathered at the centre on Fishguard Road, with supporters and team mates urging each other on.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better atmosphere and will be forever grateful for the support we received from our athletes, as well as everyone else who helped make the day possible.

“We can successfully say we have put Crossfit Pembrokeshire on the map.”

Matthew Davies, one of the lead coaches at the club, said it was the biggest event the group had put on since forming under the original branding of CrossFit Dynamic in 2012.

“We’ve always loved introducing people to crossfit but it was awesome having family and friends there cheering everyone on and seeing what we do,” he said.

“Hopefully this will be the start of an annual event.”

The club runs classes daily as well as a free taster session every Thursday at 7.45pm, and for more information visit the Crossfit Pembrokeshire Facebook Page.
