Join us on Memorial day for our annual tribute to those who have fallen protecting and serving the USA. We will warm-up at 10am, hit the workout, and then unwind and celebrate together with an off-site barbecue.

This event is free to attend and we will have different versions of the workout available for all fitness levels.

MURPH is a workout dedicated to Lt Michael Murphy, a Navy Officer who died during a counter-insurgent operation in Afghanistan. Overwhelmed by enemy forces, Murph left his position of cover and exposed himself to enemy fire in order to get a clear radio signal to communicate with his headquarters and call for support for his unit. He then returned to his position to continue fighting until he died from his wounds.

CrossFit boxes around the world do hero workouts like Murph to remember and honor our nations fallen heroes.
