South bound, we head from Napier to Martinborough, again, a wine region. Wine everywhere. Mmm, wine. Martinborough was a cute little town, with nothing much but a town square, with a few restaurants and bars. We found a great house to stay in for a few days, and after the much needed rest day, it was strength training time.

Michiel’s favourite – BOXING.

It seemed only fitting to train in the grain fields, and an hour of intense boxing pushed Michiel. I love teaching boxfit, it’s so rewarding, and great to increase upper body strength, whilst having some fun! We did long intensity intervals, with some new techniques thrown in to keep it fresh.

Not sure what these hay bales had done to Michiel…
