Memorial Day MURPH Workout & Cookout

Monday, May 28 | First heat starts at 10an

Join us for our annual Memorial Day workout as we take on the Hero WOD “Murph”. 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”. It is now 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.

We will be running hourly heats that are capped at 15 athletes per hour. Please sign up on WOD Together in advance to reserve yourself a spot. We will host a post WOD potluck cookout at the gym starting after the last heat.

Don’t forget to order your limited edition 2018 Tradewinds MURPH Shirt, $25 each –
