We Are Honored By Our Veterans & Marine Corps Sgt. Michael Roy, A Fallen Hero

In honor of Veteran’s Day, the WOD at CrossFit Athlete’s Arena is CrossFit “Hero” ROY.

CrossFit “Hero” WODs were conceived and are intended to be performed with intense effort in honor of our fallen military Heroes who gave their lives to keep us and our country safe. These WODs are the most brutal and difficult WODs CrossFit has to offer.

Marine Corps Sgt. Michael C. Roy, 25 of North Fort Myers, Florida, was assigned to the 3rd Marine Special Operations Battalion, Marine Special Operations Advisor Group, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command at Camp Lejeune, was killed in action on July 8, 2009 in Nimroz Province, Afghanistan, while supporting combat operations. He is survived by his wife Amy and three children.

A big “Thank You” from all of us at CrossFit Athlete’s Arena to Sgt. Michael Roy and all veterans for fighting for our freedoms and allowing us to live in the greatest country in the world. We honor you and your families for your service and your sacrifice.
