Memorial Day’s scheduled workout at CrossFit Banshee is Murph. This workout is one of the signature Hero WODs programmed by CrossFit HQ. These Hero WODs have a very special meaning in the CrossFit community.
CrossFit HQ has chosen to honor true heroes that have given their life in service by creating workouts with the hero’s name. The significance of this brings to the forefront how much each one of these people have given. Each hero workout programmed by CrossFit HQ features a miniature biography and picture of the hero and shows everyone that these heroes were human like the rest of us. But they embodied something greater. They were willing to sacrifice everything to give their fellow service members and their country a chance to continue living free. Anytime you see a hero workout posted, I encourage you to take the time to learn about the person and all that they gave in service.
This Memorial Day we have chosen to do the workout in honor of Michael Murphy, but we celebrate and remember all of the service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this amazing country and given us the opportunities that we enjoy today.
