Pretty moving. Good on you guys for providing a positive outlet
for these young men. We need more of that in this country.

Great video...

Great to see more videos of young men doing good things and working to make their future bright.
Crossfit should revisit these guys from today's video and Ryan O. and see what they are up to in the next year.

Great juxtaposition between the talking heads speaking of doom in the beginning and real people doing something concrete to help people. Thanks to those folks.

That video, more than almost any other yet, makes me want to join a box and become more active in the Crossfit Community. I've been DIY Crossfitting for a couple of years, and I think I am really missing out on one of its greatest facets...

Touching video.

Thank all of you for the kind words! I love helping people (young AND old) by spreading positive energy and passion. I hope this video is the outlet to help me do so. #ItsAllLove

Question. Is there a way to subscribe to the WOD in manner so that it automatically appears say on iCal? Thanks.

@jeff...he's wearing gloves because he's a surgeon. His hands are actually insured

Love the comment by one of those young role models of life being like a chipper. As I sit here and enjoy the connection with the Crossfit community I realize it's time for me to keep chipping away at all things I want to put off. Inspirational!

Beautiful video. I'm not too far from Stockton and it's nice to see all hope is not lost there.

Ran 4 miles. Looking forward to tomorrow's WOD.

M/ 39/ 135 lbs/ 5'-6"
I did a different WOD in the snowy woods this afternoon... lots of fun to workout in the woods.

30 Muscle Ups (NFT) plus 5 rounds of 10 KB swings (1.5 pood) + 10 T2Rings

I was upstate with my boys this weekend and wanted to get a little outdoor workout in before drinnking and hanging out really cranked up. I went looking for a tree to hang my rings on, but not many horizontal limbs big enough oddly enough.. I ended up hanging the rings and got set up with the KB and on my 3rd MU as i was at the top of my pull and pretty much horizontal, the branch snapped and I came crashing down to the ground on my back.. and the limb on top of me... a bit sore and a little back muscle pull... I left and ended up hanging my rings on another tree not too far away... The MUs were fun but couldn't go too fast because of another broken off limb in my way.. I had to pull up and over and then reorganize and slowly press out... but still fun to workout in the outdoors.. sooo peaceful in the snow and woods alone to get a good WOD
I did the 30 MUs for quality and pressed a decent time but nothing crazy.. then did the 5 rounds after a few minutes and they felt harder but good still... nice burner after 30 MUs
