Countdown to the Throwdown!   13 days left. Workout 2 Reveal. 

Good Evening! Tonight I will reveal our Holiday Throwdown Event 2 and give you a clue for Event 3.   This clue and the Holiday Throwdown are brought to you by Alex Lair, Financial Advisor and Echelon Wealth Partners.  Here is a word from Echelon.

We provide advice around retirement planning strategies, investment management, small business retirement plans, tax planning strategies, insurance planning, charitable giving, and estate planning strategies.

Thanks, Alex! 


Great guessing on Event 2.   You were very close. Only the 16 seemed to confuse you.   

Event 2 is….

A repeat from 2016.

3 Minute AMRAP

All 4 Team Members.

Burpee, Tire Flip, Jump/Step-Through

4 Hands must be on the tire for each flip. 

Most completed reps at the end of 3 minutes wins.  

1 rep= Burpee (2 Team Members) + Tire Flip + Get Through the Tire


Here is your clue for Event 3.    Again, I’d be surprised if you don’t guess it right away.  🙂 Post your thoughts on this one in our FB group.
