HAPPY VETERANS DAY. 

We are having regular classes today:  6am, 7am, 9:15am, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm and 7pm.  Today is a Hero WOD day.  If you don't think you are ready for an entire Hero WOD we can and will always scale reps, weights, rounds ect. in order to find your 100%.

What is a CrossFit Hero WOD?

a CrossFit Hero WOD is a Man or Woman that did CrossFit, that was a member of the Armed Forces, Police, Fire Department and died in action.

Since it's Veterans we will do a Hero WOD.  These are long grinds so do your best.  Choose from one of the three WODs.  Yes we will have multiple WODs going on at the same time, just be aware of your neighbor.

This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it 'Body Armor.' From here on it will be referred to as 'Murph' in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
