Project aim

Help to get Mike to Iceland to attend a weightlifting camp, which will improve his training, and increase his competitive ability.

About the project

Mike Palmer is a UK CrossFit athlete, trying to make it to regionals - the next round of the biggest CrossFit competition in the calendar. Mike works full time as a Paramedic, and fits training in around shift work. 

There is a weightlifting camp taking place in Iceland in October, with a fantastic coach, and attending the camp would improve Mike's weighlifting technique no end. The course will cost €1250, plus flights. We are hoping to raise some funds so that Mike doesn't have to take time out of training to work the overtime to cover the costs.

Mike already competes at a high level, and is looking for any way possible to improve his performance and give him a bit more of an edge. Recently, Mike has competed in the British Championships and finished 5th, as well as the Athlete Games in January, finishing 25th.

Mike has worked with this specific weightlifting coach once before, and saw instant improvements in his weightlifting.

Any funds raised would go directly to paying for the flights and the course.
