Hey guys! In honor of the US Veteran's Day observance tomorrow, Monday Nov. 12th, we will be doing 2 special Hero/Tribute WODs to honor all of those who have fought for our country. We will be having our regular class schedule. All veterans are welcome and encouraged to join us! Here is your Monday WOD and EWOD...

After the September 11th attacks on the US, Jeremy joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Ben, already in the Army, became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau followed his brothers and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Just over two years later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on January 10, 2012. Beau remained on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

 

The workout was originally posted on threewisementribute.org, which has since joined Headstrong, "a national organization that provides post-9/11 veterans with cost-free, stigma-free and bureaucracy-free mental health care."

 

 

Endurance WOD (6:30pm)

 

“21 Guns”

AMRAP in 21 minutes

400 meter Run

21 Push-Ups

21 Box Jumps (24/20 in)

This WOD, created for "WOD With Warriors," as a functional fitness tribute workout held twice a year on Veterans and Memorial Day in the US - "to honor our Nation's’ Warriors, past, present and future." The 21-minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-gun salute, with an exercise for each of the five Branches of the Military. A 21 Gun Salute is the US' highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for Fallen troops on Memorial Day.

 

WOD with Warriors supports Team Red, White and Blue, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity.
