"I’ve always been highly competitive at every sport I've been involved in. From the age of 10, I represented my province in South Africa in squash, athletics and rugby. I turned to competitive bodybuilding when I left school, competing at a provincial level for four years, and also got involved in Mixed Martial Arts.
Soon after I discovered mountain biking and rode and raced for two solid years. It’s a tough sport that really challenges the mind, body and soul. I ended up racing bikes when I moved to Singapore six years ago and then took up the discipline of CrossFit.
I’ve competed in CrossFit for three to four years, achieving some significant milestones including perfect scores at the Sin City Invitationals 2016, winning 2015’s “Fittest Male in Singapore” (by CrossFit HQ, USA), third place in the 2016 "Fittest in Singapore" and have been a Reebok ambassador since 2014. I now carry a Crossfit Weightlifting Certification and a CrossFit Level 2 certification.". Read more about Dyl here.
Nazharia Schifra Lomboan (Naz)
Naz hails from Jakarta and later went to school in Singapore. "I was athletic and competitive ever since I was little. I grew up with an older brother so liked what he liked, and my dad was super competitive which rubbed off on me. PE was my favourite class at school, and I did track, swimming, footy, basketball and martial arts.
At the same time I did musical theatre in Singapore and Jakarta, performing every year since I was 12, including as lead female in Footloose and in Grease as Rizzo. I also performed at The Esplanade with my band as a guitarist and back-up singer. I wanted to study performing arts but my dad sent me to business school in the UK - but then I decided to pursue my real passion which was fitness and weightlifting which led me into CrossFit".
Naz went on to become a regular CrossFit competitor and won 2017 "Fittest Female in Singapore" at the CrossFit Opens. She remains an active CrossFitter and is also now pursuing her love of weightlifting. Read more about Naz here.
"I started doing theatre for my A Levels in Singapore and taught myself to play guitar, drums, bass and percussion. My thesis was on percussion in Native American Theatre and after graduating, I got a role in a theatre company for a work doing contemporary dance. I started more dancing, and combined playing music in bands, physical theatre and dance.
In 2013 I performed at the Prague Dance Festival in the Czech Republic. I had a lead role and won the Dance Theatre, Folk Dance and Participant's Choice categories. We came back in 2014 and I won first place in Dance Theatre and Participant's Choice.
Around then I was exploring CrossFit and weightlifting. I was the head coach of another box in Singapore and competing quite around SE Asia. Dylan, Daryl and I were friends and rivals, often on the podium together, and when Dyl opened CFTP, it made sense for to come over.
I was accepting less theatre and dance work in 2016, and whilst doing my last dance gig I met Adelene Stanley, my dance partner, and we started going out soon after the concert ended. We're getting married in December this year :) I've stopped CrossFit now and am pursing goals weightlifting. Along this journey, I hold all the weightlifting national records in the under-85kg and under-94kg categories. Read more about John here.
