Join us for one of the most ultimate physical tests - The Modified Murph Challenge

What is the Modified Murph Challenge?  

  • The Murph Challenge is an intense CrossFit WOD (workout of the day) named after Lieutenant Michael Murphy.  Based on a workout that Murphy created in Afghanistan called Body Armor, the Murph Challenge was established to honor his memory. It includes a 1-mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 squats, and a second 1-mile run — all while wearing a 20-pound armored vest

Since we aren't able to do the full Murph, we created a modified version to fit our current environment while staying at home and practicing social distancing.
