“Stephen” Memorial WOD

CrossFit is a not just about getting in shape...
There’s that community.
The friendships.
The community that stands by you...
Not just through workouts....
...but through life.
On August 21, 2009 a husband, father and CrossFit Athlete died unexpectedly.

The community at ACF was there standing by the Smolinski Family.
On Labor Day, 2009 Jason Ackerman hosted the first “STEPHEN” in honor of my huband and partner of 28 years. The turn out and support were life changing. We want to thank Jason and Albany CrossFit for many years of tribute to a man that deserved all of that and more!

On the 6th year anniversary of Stephen’s death and we would like to invite our friends and family to participate in “Stephen” at CrossFit Beyond, Monday, September 7th @ 9am.

10 Rounds
10 Burpees
200m Run
30 Air Squats






We couldn't have asked for a better turn out and a better day to host




We had 14 Stations, 42 Athletes and a whole lot of fun!!

Thank you to all our sponsors and local businesses who donated gift certificates and baskets! We raised $676 just during this event, taking us to 5 place nationally out of 60 teams. Our total $2441 going toward helping homeless kids.
