Let's honour our Fallen Hero

IMG-20150817-WA0013~With our sweat and tears~

Sign up for a Hero WOD in honour of Officer Benjamin: WOD stands for Work Out of the Day! After the violent incident two weeks ago, which left our police department without brave officer Gamali Benjamin, the island has shown so much support and respect in honour of his memory. Well-known international Crossfit box on SXM, aXylum members have also paid respects with a "Hero WOD" in honour of Officer Benjamin.

Hero WOD

Since day one, CrossFit members have embraced our men and women in uniform and have chosen to honour the heroes who have given their lives to keep us and our country safe. These CrossFit Hero WODs are some of the most intense workouts you will ever experience. They were constructed with the intention of being performed with intense effort, in honour of our fallen heroes. Focus on what you can do, scale where needed, and think about the heroes that have given their all for our freedom.

CrossFit SXM hosted its first Hero WOD event in memory of Officer Benjamin yesterday. The WOD was designed specifically for Officer Benjamin. Therefore, the officers and service people of SXM in particular, but also members of the general public, were invited to participate in commemoration of Officer Benji.
