On Veterans day we will honor those Military, Police, and Fire that have given their lives in the line of duty. There will be regular hours at the gym. I know what you’re thinking,…we just did a hero WOD on Thursday/Friday last week. Oh well, it’s Veteran’s Day and we are doing another hero WOD today.
Here is an explanation on how to approach a Hero WOD:
CrossFit Hero WODs are some of the most intense, physically and mentally demanding experiences that you will ever face. They have been designed and intended to be performed with intense effort, in honor of our fallen Heroes. Don’t think to your self, “I can’t do that or it looks too hard.” Instead focus on what you can do, scale/modify where needed, and think about the Hero that has given his/her all for our freedom. Honor ALL Hero’s with your best effort.
See you at the gym and make sure you thank your fellow community members that are/were Military, Police or Fire, too. – WW
