Kua whai wheako ngā taitama kua taka ki te hē i te ao CrossFit. Mō te wā tuatahi kua whakaaetia ngā roopu kē ātu e Te Ara Poutama hei tautoko i te kaupapa Mauri Toa Rangatahi, he kaupapa hei whakatenatena i aua taitama.
E tuwhera ana ngā tatau o CrossFit Firstlight i Maungawharau, hei ārahi anō i ētahi taitama ki te ara tika.
E ai ki tetahi kaimahi o Mauri Toa Rangatahi, a Aaron Gladstone, “I was lucky enough to get bought up well and sometimes it’s nice to help out people that weren’t as privileged as I was.”
Hei tā Steve Gladstone he kaimahi ano i reira, “They've had a pretty hard road, these three put their hand up and said they really wanted to push forward in the physical training aspect of careers, so this opportunity opened up for them at CrossFit.”
He mahi hāpai i te hapori te whakawhiu ki a rātou, i raro i te kaupapa Mauri Toa Rangatahi, ko tāna, he tuku iho pūmanawa mā ngā taitama rua tekau heke iho.
“It's about giving them an opportunity to have a go in an industry that they're keen on, these boys are keen on personal training also it's about teaching them different coping strategies for managing their emotions,” hei tā Amy Knowles nō He Mauri Toa Rangatahi.
Hei tā Steve, “It's also learning for the cornerstones of manaaki, tiakitanga, wairuatanga rangatiratanga that we have as our foundations for our programme, so it brings the work that they do.”
O ngā taitama tokoiwa, kua rima wiki tēnei tokotoru e haramai ana ki kōnei ki te whai wheako i te ao whakapakari tinana.
“That there was the best one that they've done with all the rowing last time they were in a world of hurt but this time they did really well, they lifted heavier weights, this time, their technique was better everything they did was better,” hei tā Aaron.
I whakarewaina tēnei kaupapa i te tau rua mano tekau mā whā, he iwa ki te tekau mā rua wiki te roa, ko te whai, kia kaua anō rātou e taka ki te hē.
