It all started from a friend, a colleague, a peer . . .
From being bored with the same routine, from plateauing time and time again . . .
I wanted to get healthy, I wanted people around me who cared . . .

They called it constantly varied, functional movements, executed at high intensity . . .

It's about taking the first step -

It's called CrossFit and I friggin' love it!

Honoring The Hero

Exceptional job last night on "Abbate" . . .

U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Matthew T. Abbate, 26, of Honolulu, Hawaii, assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, based out of Camp Pendleton, California, was killed on December 2, 2010, while conducting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He is survived by his wife Stacie Rigall, son Carson, mother Karen Binion, father Salvatore Abbate, and siblings Dominica Abbate, Elliot Abbate, Valerie Binion, and Kelly Binion.

Excellent job by everyone, this isn't an easy workout to say the least, but as mentioned in prior posts, and before everyone does a Hero WOD of any sort - my motivation for you is:  This isn't really about you - it's about honoring those who served for us and our country.

There is nothing more symbolic in CrossFit than partaking in a WOD that is in memory of someone.

Now is time for a little research for Games Event 2. . .

Talk to you tomorrow
