This year marks four years since our good mate, Joshy, passed away. Josh Simpson, a CrossFit member at Move Strong Gym, tragically passed away on 28 March 2014 after suffering an unexpected brain haemorrhage. Josh left behind his newly wed pregnant wife, Amanda Simpson, who later lost her son Oscar at 30 weeks. Josh's passing affected many people. He was an outstanding CrossFitter, with an amazing work ethic and integrity, and a good friend to many.
Every year, since his passing, Move Strong Gym has honoured Josh for his birthday with a special CrossFit workout. There are two WODs to choose from - Joshy A can be scaled, so everyone can participate:
Joshy WOD A
4 Rounds For Time:
- Back Squats x 28 @ m.45kg, f.30kg
- Wall Walks x 3
- Toes to Bar x 14
- Start workout with 32 burpees
Joshy WOD B
- KB Swings x 28 @ m.32kg, f.24kg

The Joshy WOD will be run during our regular CrossFit Class times: 0500, 0615, 0930, 1700.
We'd love to open the Joshy WOD to the public for FREE, so everyone who knew Josh, or who has participated in past Joshy WODs, can come and honour this great man.
