Q:Where do I sign up?
A:Go to our registration page.
Q:I have never done CrossFit before, is this a good time for me to try?
A:NO! You must be proficient with all movements in your workout before you get here. However, come out and watch, make a donation and we’ll see you in one of our gyms on Tuesday morning.
Q:Can I scale the weight?
A.These memorial workouts are epic. Your effort should be in line with that spirit. That being said, it should be a great challenge but doable. Hurting yourself doesn't honor anyone. Scale as needed. Don't be stupid.
Q:I want to do multiple wods. Can I do that?
A:Yes. Everyone signed up for a hero wod before 2pm, is welcome to join in for Murph with no additional donated dollars expected (but always welcome).If you want to do even more than that, you have to pay an additional registration fee for each additional WOD. Every space is a potential donation, we are not interested in short changing our charities.
Q:If I register for a WOD and my buddy registers for a different WOD, can we do both of our wods as a team?
A:Yes. As long as both of you are fully registered and use one set of equipment per workout, you can absolutely share workouts. Please note, if you are going to do a workout as a coed team, please register for the men's Rx weight. Each WOD is allotted one set of equipment so you will have to add/remove weight as needed.
Q:I have trucks full of money that I want to donate above and beyond the registration fee, can I do that?
A:Absolutely. If you want to use a credit card, we suggest going straight to the Travis Manion Foundation (click here for a direct link). Additionally, if you would like to donate to the Warren A. Frank Leadership Fund, we can take cash or check the day of the event.
Q:Your charities have cool logos, but who do they help?
A:We have selected these charities very carefully. We strive to support our fighting men and women from the moment they begin their training to years after they return from service.
The Travis Manion Foundation assists veterans and supports families of fallen heroes. Through challenge grants, charity events, and community education, they keep alive the memories of those lost and provide invaluable support to those who survive.

The Warren Frank Leadership Fund is a Citadel Marine scholarship program. Administered by active Citadel cadets, they choose their peer most deserving of this scholarship. The money goes directly to funding the education of future Marine officer and leadership education for the NROTC unit there. Which, by the way, produces more officers than any program but the Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Q:Are the lockers from my gym magically linked to the lockers in your gym?
A:Yes. Unfortunately, gym gnomes tend to lose things in transit. If you have any special equipment that you are married to, please bring it with you. This includes: jump ropes, lifting shoes, tape, wraps, and those invisible shirts that all Crossfit men seem to wear.
Q:I want a special commemorative t-shirt for every day of the week, will you be selling them on site?
A:Yes. All additional proceeds will go directly to the charities.
Q:Is this a family friendly event?
