The local CrossFit/Fitness Communities are gathering together for a CrossFit Workout to Honor the Memory of Capt. Jeff Bowen.
On July 28, 2011, Asheville firefighter Capt. Jeff Bowen gave his life in the line of duty. In his honor, we are hosting a Hero workout to raise money for the Bowen Family. A suggestion donation of $20 earns you a spot in a heat, as well as a t-shirt with all proceeds going to the Bowen family. ANYONE is welcome to participate. You do NOT have to be a member of a local CrossFit affiliate to attend.
“Bowen” â€“ The Workout
3 Rounds for time:
Please note: The Rx’d workout is certainly challenging, but can be scaled for individuals of ANY level: lighter DL loads, burpee ring-rows, box step-ups, scaled distance run or row replacement, etc. as needed! PLEASE do not allow the challenge of the workout be the limiter for participation!
When & Where
Saturday, August 4 â€“CrossFit Ashevilleâ€“CrossFit Asheville will open at 7am and there will be an early morning heat starting at 7:30am intended for those most familiar with the movements as many of the coaches will also be training during this time. The next heat will begin at 8:30. Participants are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the heat they sign up for to allow for waivers, warm-up, instruction & set-up for each heat.
After the 8:30 start more heats will begin every 45 minutes with a 30 minute cap assigned to each workout.
