Last month we hosted the first ever West Lake Throwdown in our new space. We have thrown various mini competitions over the years - from Goodbye Events to Themed Throwdowns and Continental Clashes. We wanted this first competition at 34 Dang Thai Mai to take the cake. And that it did!
Twenty-six teams, in three divisions, took on five events over the course of the day. The box was packed with athletes, judges and spectators and the energy in the space was electric! Tears were shed, laughs were had, and hard work was put in. Big congrats to everyone who competed - we are so thankful for such an incredible community.
All of the professional photos and videos are now here in one space for your viewing pleasure!

WHAT A DAY!
Saturday, February 8, 2020 will go down in history as one of the best days for Crossfit Tay Ho. While it is always a good day at CFTH, this past weekend our Grand Opening took the cake.
We were blown away by the support from the Hanoi Community, but even more so by our own #TayHoArmy of members that came, saw, and conquered our first ever workout at 34 Dang Thai Mai.
THE START OF SOMETHING GREAT
We kicked off the morning with coffee and croissants (Shout outs to our friends over at Simple Coffee and C'est Bon for the drinks and bites). Lots of excitement around the new space, toys and facilities.
From our tiny little dungeon of 75 square meters to a massive space of 457 square meters (over six times bigger!). We no longer need to go to Starbucks to go to the bathroom, or get dangerously close to each other on the WOD floor. Everyone is super pumped about the facilities and space we have.
Of course it wouldn't be a Crossfit Tay Ho event without some speeches and fanfare.
CROSSFIT TAY HO BENCHMARK WOD - HOAN KIEM
We celebrated the start of something new with our first ever benchmark WOD called Hoan Kiem. Hoan Kiem is an important lake in Hanoi. Hoan Kiem is...
12 minute AMRAP
5 Hang Power Snatches
10 Box Jumps
15 Pull ups
45 Double Unders
It's been a long time coming, and we couldn't be more excited for what the future holds for Crossfit Tay Ho. Here's to getting fitter, better, and stronger in 2020 and beyond!
