Today we end the year with a grind. Think about all the things you want to leave behind in 2018 and all the characteristics you want to STEP INTO in 2019. Today we also keep Chad in mind and the hundreds of thousands of suicidal military and civilians. We are able to be a light to these people and you never know who they are so be a light to all.
No 4:30pm, 5:30pm and 6:30pm classes today. Be safe and Happy New Year!
"Chad Wilkinson" HERO MEMORIAL WOD
1,000 Box Step-Ups (20 in for all)
Wear a Ruck Pack or weight however necessary (45/35 lb)
***YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO DO THE 1000 STEPS BETWEEN 2 PARTNERS. And do not add weight unless you are confident you can handle it.***
Dedicated to Chad Michael Wilkinson of the US Navy who died on October 29, 2018, in Virginia Beach on active duty after 22 years of service.
CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro posted this workout in memory of Chad, who was a friend. Castro said: "A few weeks ago we lost an American hero. A friend of mine and someone I worked with when I was in the Navy. At his funeral his wife mentioned that he did 1000 step ups for time with a 45 pound pack on a 20” box to train for climbing Mt Aconcagua. Tonight I did this workout with @jameshobart @apbozman and @jimi.letchford. We did it as a celebration of his life and to honor his memory. If you are looking for something to do this weekend give this one a go and keep Chad in mind."
From the Navy SEAL Foundation website: "SOCS Chad Michael Wilkinson died by suicide. The Foundation provided immediate tragedy assistance funding, travel and lodging for his family members, flowers and memorial legacy items for the command memorial and reception, as well as a family dinner the evening before the command memorial."
