Monday - 9/11 WOD

In honor of the 343 firefighters, 60 Police Officers (NYPD Officers: 23, Port Authority Police Officers: 37) and 8 EMTs who lost their lives trying to save others during the 9/11 attacks. We will honor these men and women with a WOD (Workout of the Day) dedicated to them and all of the other First Responders that protect and serve us all.

We also want to remember the 2,976 people from 93 nations that lost their lives in New York, at the Pentagon, and on Flight 93.

"Dear friends, let's love each other, because love is from God, and everyone who loves is born from God and knows God" (1 John 4:7)

As you will notice from last year... This WOD is designed to not be finished by most. You may only get 5,6, or 7 rounds, But that is okay. Like the Heroes from 9/11, even though finishing was not an option, they still went in!
