In December 2017 more than 80 athletes from 20 countries came together in Northern Thailand's Chiang Mai to compete at the 2017 Thailand Throwdown. Among them, six athletes from Hanoi representing CrossFit Tay Ho!
CrossFit Tay Ho head coach Jacques, Aaron, Jenn, Brontee, assistant coach Patrick and Kal, representing CrossFit Tay Ho at the 2017 Thailand Throwdown in Chiang Mai.
They came to sweat and fight for each second and each kilogram on the barbell...
But they also came to have tons of fun...
And they finally finished the weekend with great success! Congratulations to...
In May 2017 we realized that our little Tay Ho box desperately needed some serious 'reconditioning'! The problems with our flooring started to affect the quality and safety of workouts, especially when heavy barbell work was involved. And although we all loved the patina of the box… we felt that a bucket of fresh paint and some new shelfs would do good as well. So we gathered the community and started a project!
Here is the box before the renovation...
When you start digging deep in the basement of a house in Hanoi… well, we discovered that there was no foundation, no concrete or whatsoever beneath the layers of gym mats, wood and (hollow) tiles of our box floor.
Hard work needs a strong team!
After taking out the old floor and paving over the concrete we could finally start to place the new shiny blue gym mats (made in Vietnam!).
And here is the result… our new 'heaven of gains'!
On December 4, 2016 the Hanoi CrossFit community came together to compete in the first CrossFit Tay Ho Throwdown! Who would be the fittest in Hanoi? How many PRs would be hit this day? And would all of the athletes have the mental strength to fight through the day? The gathering of athletes in the first daylight of competition day showed a crowd 110% ready to fight!
