6th Annual Memorial Day ‘Murph’ WOD-Monday May 29th

murph

Family, friends, and pets are invited to participate! Please join us on Monday May 29th at 9:00am as we workout in honor of Lt. Michael Murphy and all those who have passed while serving our country.

Mini Murph and Smurf Murph can also be done as a workout!!

Murph is a CrossFit WOD done 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.
