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.

Make plans to exercise!

We know the holidays can be hectic with travel, family visits, holiday parties, the end-of-year crunch at work, and a packed schedule in general. And we know the cold weather makes you want to cuddle up in sweatpants and you might think WHO REALLY CARES IF I PUT ON A FEW POUNDS SINCE IT’S COVERED UP IN LAYERS???

We do. We care. We want you all to continue your progress if you are traveling and away from CFM. So for the next week we’ll be posting Holiday Travel Workouts for you to do on the road…in the hotel gym…in Nana’s living room…back home in your garage…WHEREVER! We also encourage you to drop in to a local CrossFit Box if you’re out of town this weekend. Post a pic or video of your travel workout or drop in WOD to Instagram and tag @crossfitmidtown.
