Today is the our first time doing a Hero WOD here at CrossFit Bane. For some of you, this is your first Hero WOD. For others, you have many of them under your belt. I wanted to take a few minutes and explain what they are all about. Humor me, please.

 

CrossFit Hero WODs were made to represent a fallen Hero. Looking at them at first glance, your initial reaction is usually something like “you have got to be kidding me!” or “oh hell no, today is my off day.” (Cherry Picker) They are not made to be done every day. They were made to suck. They were made to push people past their breaking points.

 

These people put their lives on the line every day for us. These WODs are just a little reminder for us that while we go about our 9-5 jobs, they are out there on the front line risking it all for people they don’t even know. That’s a HERO.

 

So while your doing “Murph” or “DT” and thinking to yourself how much it sucks and how much you want to quit… think about what they went through. Use that as your motivation to finish!!

 

Honor them by showing up to class and giving it ALL YOU HAVE. And as The Star Spangled Banner plays each and every time we do a Hero WOD here at CrossFit Bane, remember the sacrifices they made so that you can be here today.
