Navy file photo of SEAL Lt. Michael P. Murphy, from Patchogue, N.Y. Murphy was killed by enemy forces during a reconnaissance mission, Operation Red Wing, June 28, 2005, while leading a four-man team tasked with finding a key Taliban leader in the mountainous terrain near Asadabad, Afghanistan. The team came under fire from a much larger enemy force with superior tactical position. Murphy knowingly left his position of cover to get a clear signal in order to communicate with his headquarters and was mortally wounded while exposing himself to enemy fire. While being shot and shot at, Murphy provided his units location and requested immediate support for his element. He returned to his cover position to continue the fight until finally succumbing to his wounds.
This Memorial Day (May 30) you are all invited to join us while we honor a fallen hero by performing a workout that was created in his memory. We will be starting “Murph” and 9 a.m. at Titletown CrossFit, followed by a cookout (once someone gets the grill started for Coach Nik) and some yard games/competitions. Everyone is encouraged to bring a dish of some sort. Don’t feel like working out? No problem…still feel free to swing by for some food. Have a safe weekend and we’ll see you Monday morning!
Happy Thursday everyone. With another week coming to an end, you all have another opportunity for a new beginning. This Saturday, as with every Saturday, we will be hosting our FREE community workout at 8:30 a.m. This is a great chance to see what CrossFit is all about. You’ll see first hand how we go about our business in helping you live life with more strength and energy than you ever imagined. Everyone has their “day 1”. Will this Saturday be yours?
Tomorrow, May 2, you all have an opportunity to start a new life. At either 6:15 a.m. or 6:15 p.m. you could take your first steps to a life of greater strength, stamina, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy, endurance, and much more beyond the physical. Mental toughness, better sleep at night, happier days, nutritional counseling are also on the list of positive side effects of CrossFit. That list is endless.
Onramp sessions run Monday-Wednesday-Thursday over the course of 12 sessions. You will work directly with a coach to learn all the fundamentals of CrossFit movements, how to perform them safely, and why we go about our business the way we do.
Have a great Sunday. See you tomorrow.
Here is a thought for the day. Life exists longer than just the 3-4 months of summer (living in the Midwest). So when you see advertisements that say, “get fit for summer!” you should probably run. As coaches, we see those advertisements as, “we don’t care about your health for those other 9 months.” We care about your health and fitness year round. You should too.
Festivus Eve is upon us! Just over 4 months ago the event was announced. We blinked. And it’s here. The crew at Titletown CrossFit wants you to know that we are crazy excited to play host tomorrow!
Athletes: you’ve put in the time, you know the movements, you know the workouts. All that’s left is to show up tomorrow morning and get a little fitter while having a blast.
Spectators: The event is FREE…come check out the action all day from 9 a.m. to 5:45 p.m! We have a bunch of awesome vendors/businesses on hand that include Cryotherapy of Wisconsin, MGL Fitness, Titletown CrossFit, and many others!
Let’s have a day hey? See y’all bright and early.
