The "Strong Is The New Skinny" blog said it right when they said "Keep doing what you've always done and you'll keep getting what you've always gotten." A big thumbs up to our new on-ramp/future crossfit members for taking control, finding crossfit and changing their lives as they know it. Keep up the great work guys!!

Benchmark Wednesday

This WOD is in honor of Christina Taylor Green was born on September 11, 2001. She died in another public display of violence on January 8, 2011. She was shot in Tucson, along with 19 other people, including Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Five victims died at the scene. Of the six fatalities, only Christina died at the hospital. Her uncle Greg Segalini said she took a bullet in the chest. The 9-year-old girl had accompanied a neighbor to the “town hall” event in a supermarket parking lot because she wanted to meet Gabrielle Giffords. Christina was newly elected to the student council at Mesa Verde Elementary School.

This WOD will be done in memory of Christina. The 6 movements in the workout represent how many people died as a result of the shooting, 9 reps for each movement represent Christina’s age. Let’s try and make it to this WOD in support of Christina, her family, and the other victims of the shooting.

  1. holy hell this looks like a real meat grinder

  2. Love the tribute to Christina. I have to work tonight so I’m doing this one in the weight room here at school. Good luck everyone!

  3. And all we have to do it make through the workout. So much easier than what her family’s going through right now. I can only imagine the amazing woman this little girl would have grown up to be. What a loss.

  4. It was a kicker of a workout but felt good to honor little Christina. 😉

  5. Worst thing a parent could ever experience. I thought of that little girl constantly during that WOD.
