Tomorrow we honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. We hope you will all take some time to be thankful for, and remember, those who have died in defense of our country. If you are coming to the gyms, you will be completing a CrossFit Hero Workout called “Whitten.” Please see the notes below, and keep Captain Whitten and his family in your thoughts as you tackle this challenge.
Please note that we will be posting the weekly blog on Monday night this week, given the holiday.
