Yeah well done. Go get them.
Who is your coach?
Fucking awesome. I wish I could get in on some cool **** like this. Where in Australia are you based?

I think a couple of them have a fair bit of MA experience, but whatever.
4 main coaches - Richie Cranny who has had a couple of MMA fights, Rachel Guy who is one of the most sought after strength and conditioning coaches in Australia (apparently), Michael McSeveny, another pro MMAist, and Marc Gehret, whom I'm unfamiliar with. We'll also have Fabio Glazer as a instructor for BJJ - other than being a black-belt, I don't know much about him either.

They've just put up the preview video for Wimp 2 Warrior - have a look!
I'm the tall guy with yellow shirt and beard that talks about being the geek of his family.
That looks like fun. In a painful way
On the plus side...

how are they gonna do the weight divisions etc? i would assume they would try and match you up at the start, but if one guy loses a lot of weight through the training and the other doesnt, what happens then?
I'm not sure, and it's something I'm kinda of worried about actually. From what I've seen so far, I'm easily the biggest chap on the show, and if some of the other fatter blokes lose some weight, they may find it hard to match me up with someone. I'm not sure if any of the other contestants would really be "heavyweight" if they lost some fat.

Looks like fun, good stuff. Quite the beard, too, that has to count for something. Good luck!
