31Heroes WOD Hosted by CrossFit Midtown 8/1

Thank you to everyone who participated in the ‪#‎31Heroes‬ workout this weekend. We'd also like to thank those who came out to support and watch (friends, family, and our partners), those who volunteered their time, and to all those who donated to the cause! There is something about laying your sweat and sometimes tears and blood on the floor or rope that commits us to our cause and reminds us of how fortunate we are in our day to day lives. We came together for 31 minutes to honor those who serve and remember those who have fallen. #workouttoremember

Workout To Remember

Workout To Remember

31Heroes WOD Hosted by CrossFit Midtown

This WOD was created specifically to honor the 30 men and one dog that gave their lives for our country on August 6, 2011. It is 31 minutes long—one minute in remembrance of each hero. The rep scheme is 8-6-11—the date of their ultimate sacrifice. Finally, this is a partner WOD. The men who gave their lives were from multiple branches of our military, working together as a team. In the workout you and your team member will constantly be taking the load from each other providing much needed support and relief. We realize that no physical sacrifice made during a workout can come close to the sacrifice our brave heroes made, but we consider this WOD a CrossFitters “moment of silence.” This is how we can honor those that gave all in the name of freedom.

Sign up to participate in the WOD on Saturday, August 1st from 9am-12pm. For more details and to register click here.
