Purpose: Workout of the Day or WOD with Warriors is a functional fitness tribute workout held twice a year on Veterans and Memorial Day at gyms all throughout the country. WOD with Warriors supports Team Red, White and Blue, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity.
1. To help people remember and observe Veterans Day in a respectful, reflecting, meaningful way.
2. To provide an opportunity for veterans to connect to members of their community through functional fitness.
The WOD - 21 Guns – Memorial Day
A 21 Gun Salute is the Nation’s highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for our Fallen troops on Memorial Day (We are actually having the work-out in Minot on May 21st because of the Team RWB Camping Trip planning for Memorial Day weekend). This WOD intends to replicate this, to honor our Nation's’ Warriors, past, present and future. The 21- minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-gun salute, with an exercise for each of the five Branches of the Military.
21 minute As many rounds as possible (AMRAP)
400 meter run
21 box jump (24”/20”)
The event is free to register but shirts cost $20. Please order your shirt by May 10th to ensure it arrives on time. Please register so we get an accurate number of burgers to grill after the work-out.
