The Hero Workouts

The Hero Workouts


Tributes to Courage and Sacrifice.

Bell, Gallant, Pike, Legion 8, Jenny. These are the names of workouts created as a tribute to men and women who lost their lives in service to their country. The Hero Workouts presents a collection of these honorific workouts dedicated to their memory.

The Hero Workouts features over 100 workouts each named for a fallen hero and includes the story of their personal lives and battle action. The story behind The Hero Workouts is one that needs to be told. Each workout is named after a fallen soldier or group of soldiers.

Started in the Crossfit community, the Hero Workouts are rooted in honor. By participating in these workouts, one gains the opportunity to revere an individual who has made the ultimate sacrifice. Taking the time to remember these men and women or to learn who they were can be part of a healing process, either on a personal level or in response to a collective loss we all feel. The stories behind the workouts are emotional and moving… stories of courage, family, loss, and grief collected and expressed by researcher and writer Carter Henry, herself an active duty sailor in the United States Navy.
