The Open has Arrived!

It's March and that means The Open is under way and you're crushing the workouts! 18.1 has already happened and Dave Castro hit us with a killer 20-minute AMRAP featuring a movement never before seen in the Open - dumbbell clean and jerks! How are those shoulders feeling, everyone? How did you do?

And let's not forget, with the arrival of the Open, the Tradewinds Open Team challenge has begun! The captains carefully hand-selected their teams... and the friendly trash-talking began right from the jump! The social media surrounding Tradewinds is always fun, but the posts that have been flying since the Open started have been on a whole other level! 

But we're just scratching the surface, folks! There are still 4 WODs to go! Be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook page to see live feed of our Thursday Night Throwdown every week immediately following the announcement of each Open workout around 8pm. You're going to want to check out Coach Andy's "Coach's Corner" video blogs every Friday, where he'll be dispensing handy tips on how to tackle each workout. And then, Friday Night Lights - where our teams go head-to-head in hopes of gaining all the glory (and bragging rights)! Show up in person or check out our live feeds! And stick around after the all the work for our weekly "After the Open" parties, see more details below.
