Find Your W!

It happens to every athlete… When you’ve been doing it long enough (working out that is), personal records (PRs) and milestones start to become fewer and farther between. How can you get past that? See what you can do to get something in your W (aka Win) column. It can literally be anything: Plan to go to the gym 3 times a week, and get that W by going 3 times; having a rough time with a particular movement, get that W by committing to practicing that movement and following through with it.

There are many, many ways you can get that W, so long as you take a good look at where you’re at, set some realistic attainable goals, work hard, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. 

You can even extend this to other areas. Trying to get better at golf? Try decreasing your number of strokes on the course by 1. Running? Try finishing your usual route faster, or extend your distance. Whatever it is, find your W… Tradewinds is here to help!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Tradewinds

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Take some time this month to celebrate, remember, and recognize… and take a look below for how we are participating this month, including a special event on 10/8. More details below.

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as beautiful as you’d ever imagined.”

Starting on Columbus Day, CrossFit Tradewinds will be collecting cash donations throughout the entire month of October to donate to the ellie fund a non-profit organization that provides transportation to medical appointments, childcare, housekeeping, groceries and meals free of charge to more ttahn 500 women and families each year who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer in Massachusetts. There will be a donation can on the gym desk to donate.
Do you have a special story about how breast cancer has affected you and how you have persevered? We would love to share your story in a special memorial. Please email us a short story of your experience and any photos to share a glimpse into your perseverance.
