Fall is firmly underway and that means things are going to start picking up steam as we head into the holidays. As the days go by, and the days get more and more hectic, make sure you make the time to take care of yourself.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are all coming up soon. That means candy, lots of food, and maybe a bit of drinking. It’s almost like the calendar is out to derail you! Fortunately, your friends at CrossFit Tradewinds have got your back, as always! This month starts the Fall Fit Challenge! Taking part in this will arm you with the knowledge to keep you dialed in and on track in the face of all the temptations the holidays throw at you.
Even if you’re not taking part in the challenge, our coaches can give you some pointers both in terms of exercise and nutrition. They want to see you succeed almost as much as you do!

Athlete of the Month
October’s Athlete of the Month is Caitlin! She’s been coming around for a little more than half a year, and she’s been absolutely crushing it! She’s coming in consistently and giving it her all – hallmarks of a textbook CFT athlete of the month. On top of that, she’s a positive presence in class, which makes her very deserving of the title! Let’s hear more:
Athlete Interview CFT: Where are you from? Caitlin: I grew up in the Finger Lakes region of Western NY, but have lived in Boston for the majority of the last 10 years: Brighton, Jamaica Plain, and now Winthrop (yay!)
CFT: How long have you been doing CrossFit? Caitlin: About 7 months.
Assess, Correct, & Unifyyour mobility. Understand your movement restrictions, learn the 5-point corrective system to see immediate results, and then incorporate new mobility back into your movements. This seminar is designed to help you move safer & more efficiently, and to keep you moving for longer.
Spots are limited. Registration deadline is 10/8. Sign-up today!
Come cheer on some of our very own Tradewinds Athletes as they take on this fantastic 6 person team competition. Tradewinds will have a tent. Feel free to bring a chair, snacks/drinks, and maybe even a firepit.
