All across the country Americans will be taking part in the Murph Challenge this Memorial Day Weekend. This challenge was created and dedicated to the memory of LT. Michael P. Murphy.

The Navy SEAL’s “Murph” WOD (Workout of the Day) is a favorite amongst the CrossFit community and it was a favorite of the then 29-year-old hero.

Join us on this special day and remember…

“The ’MURPH’ is more than just a workout, it is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor a man who gave everything he had.”

We hope to see you there!
