WOD – May 23, 2015

The annual Memorial Day “Murph” workout will be held Saturday morning at 7am!  There will be no 8:30am class on Saturday due to the CF Games Regionals in Hartford this weekend.  We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning!

 

Next on-ramp begins Monday, 6/1/15.  We have a new on-ramp process in 2015!  Folks will get to try on-ramp for the 1st week FREE!!  At the end of the 3rd on-ramp class, new folks will have the choice to end their journey (no questions asked) or continue through the rest of on-ramp!  Then and only then will we collect payment for on-ramp.  In addition, we will have a new weekly incentive program for on-rampers which will be based on their timeliness in signing-up for an ongoing membership.  Please tell your friends and family about the new process.

 

Please welcome Kayla, our new physical therapist!  Kayla will be seeing folks for sports related issues/mobility on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30pm and on Sundays from 9-11am (provided folks are signed up for an appt).  To sign-up, please add your name to the list on the desk.  Please also take a history of present illness form and fill it out prior to your appt.  Price is $25/session or $100/5 sessions.

 

 

WOD:

Training:

“Murph”

For time:
1 mile Run
100 Pull-ups
200 Push-ups
300 Squats
1 mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

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.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.
