Coaches Hillary & Sarah: Final AO Prep!

by Arena Ready on December 8th, 2014

Coaches Hillary and Sarah are in their final week of training before they compete this weekend with the country's best at the American Open Championships in Washington, DC.  While this is a taper week for both athletes you'll likely still see them on the AR platforms getting in their last few sessions.

Both Hillary and Sarah compete on Sunday, Dec 14th, and the action can be streamed live via the USA Weightlifting website here:

Hillary's session is scheduled to start at 6:00am PST (9:00am on the East Coast) on the "Red Platform."

Sarah's session is scheduled to start at 8:00am PST (11:00am on the East Coast) on the "Blue Platform."

Speakng of badass weightlifting (and CrossFitting) women who are coaches at Arena Ready, we wish Coach Amy all the best as she undergoes surgery on her shoulder on Friday.  Her presence at the AO will be missed, and we wish her a speedy recovery... which is likely to happen given that she squatted 140kg/308lbs on Saturday before the AR Holiday Party, exactly 1 year after hip surgery!

In light of the American Open Championships this coming weekend the gym wil be closed on Sunday, Dec 14th.  Monday's classes will resume as usual under our normal schedule.

Go get 'em, Hillary & Sarah!!!
