Upcoming CFM Events

Saturday, August 6th: 9am-12 noon.
As an annual CFM tradition, we will be doing the 31Heroes this weekend Saturday morning.

On August 6th, 2011, 31 of America’s bravest warriors gave their lives in defense of our freedom. These men were sons, brothers, husbands, fathers, and friends. 31Heroes.org was created as a effort to raise funds for the families of these fallen warriors, and has since then grown in purpose. Providing funds to families nationwide who have lost loved ones overseas, and providing assistance to those returning from duty with disabilities, we are honored to be able to associate with such a cause.

To learn more about 31Heroes.org and to donate to the CFM Team, click HERE: 31Heroes WOD Event

Friday, August 12th: 7-8pm. Lurong Nutrition & Fitness Championship Challenge Information Meeting.

Thursday, August 25th: Bring-A-Friend Day. All levels beginner friendly partner WOD.

“31Heroes”
AMRAP in 31 minutes of:
8 Thrusters (155/105)
6 Rope Climbs (15')
11 Box Jumps (30"/24")
[See below for scaling options]
This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a sandbag (45/25). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the sandbag and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

Score is your total number of rounds/reps (25 per round). Ex: 8+8 Rx (L3).

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.

8 Thrusters (105/75#)
