31 Heroes Memoral WOD:

Saturday, August 30th, two weeks away, we will be hosting 31 Heroes workout at our gym.  What this means, is we will open our doors at and get heats started right at 8:00 am and complete the workout in heats until we are done.  ANYONE is invited and can come workout and donate.  So invite friends out.  We will find partners for everyone!

What is the 31 Heroes WOD?

The WOD: “31Heroes”
AMRAP 31 minutes (As Many Reps As Possible)
- 8 Thrusters (155/105#)
- 6 Rope Climbs (15 ft. ascent)
- 11 Box Jumps (30/24″)

This is a Partner WOD – Partner #1 will perform the work listed above. Partner #2 will run 400m with a weight (45/25#). Once Partner #2 returns from the run, Partner #1 will grab the weight and begin their 400m, while Partner #2 continues work wherever #1 left off.

Score is your total # of reps between both partners

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.

Why do the 31 Heroes WOD?

In August CrossFit gyms around the nation and world will unite together hosting the fourth “31Heroes” WOD honoring the men killed in action on August 6, 2011. The funds raised will be distributed to grant recipients through The 31Heroes Project. Two of this year’s grant recipients will be the Travis Manion Foundation and the Navy SEAL Foundation. Together, the Navy SEAL Foundation, Travis Manion Foundation, and 31Heroes are One Team One Fight!
