For the next 8 weeks every Saturday 9am class is going to be dedicated to a Hero WOD and the coach who choose the Hero WOD. Hero work outs are created to honor someone who has made the ultimate sacrifice for others.

“The only thing we have left to fear is fear itself.” -President Franklin D. Roosevelt 

Our first Hero Saturday comes from Coach Marie Huffman,  Coach Marie teaches physical education for the Clarkston School District. She loves heavy Power Cleans.. power or nah? No squats for that chic. There isn’t a playlist that wont get her moving but she does like to turn up the Young MC playlist. When we asked Coach Marie who her personal hero was, she said “My Mom because she gave up so much for us to be able to play sports.” 
We also asked what inspired her choice for this work out..

“I picked Dorie because of the partner aspect of the WOD and battling through the workout together. I also thought the significance of what he did and how it was tied to the movements.
There is significance of the workout’s format and rep scheme:
– Partner workout be cause he moved/drug several men to safer location while the ship was being strafed – including the ships commanding officer who was mortally wounded.
– 150m Partner Carry, 150 Wall Balls, because “15” is in reference to a quote from Dorie as having fired the 50cal deck gun (which he had no training on) for 15 minutes recording at least one enemy kill and possibly up to four
– AMRAP at the end because after moving men during strafing, and after firing the 50 cal at enemy planes for 15 mins, because of his size/athleticism his commanding officer ordered him to save “as many men as possible” from the water as his ship was sinking”
