Galesburg Area Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
The "Murph" is a Hero WOD named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy. Hero WOD’s are made to honor military members, law enforcement, and fire fighters who lost their lives in the line of duty.
This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. This workout was developed by Lt. Michael while he was on tour in Afghanistan. He named the workout "Body Armor" and used it to push his guys both physically and mentally. Unfortunately Lt. Murphy was killed in the line of duty along with his unit, with the exception of one. You may know the story as "Lone Survivor".
Anytime Fitness would like to invite everyone in our community to join us on Memorial Day to honor all of the men and women in our armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice. We will have the doors open for an outside run and we will have modifications for the other excerises. This workout will have a one hour time cap.
