CrossFit is a not just a place to workout or a place to get in shape... it's a community! It is were friendships are built and relationships are made under grueling WODs.
The community stands by you... through work outs.... and through life's issues.
CrossFit takes part in the good and the bad. It takes part of the tragedies in others lives. As a whole, the CrossFit Community does WODs in honor of fallen military men, firemen, policemen and all other men in service. They are called Hero WOD's.
August 21st is the 4th Anniversary of my husbands sudden death and Jason Ackerman, owner of Albany CrossFit/CrossFit Clifton Park created a WOD is Stephen's honor. The past 3 years we have done a special WOD, "Stephen" on Labor Day in honor of Stephen.
Below is two beautiful and heartfelt videos that Jason created of Steve the first Anniversary.
