Tuesday 29, December 2009


Today we will be doing a WOD in honor of a family that has had pain I hope none of us ever have to endure. They are a strong family, and there request of having gym's take part in their WOD is a small thing in the light of our every day lives.


I have included the link to their page, so you can read more about the cause we are taking part in today.




Please post individually on their site, and I will post all of our times at the end of the day today.


SMA - Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease. The motor neurons affect the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing. It is a relatively common "rare disorder": approximately 1 in 6000 babies born are affected, and about 1 in 40 people are genetic carriers.


So, please as we are struggling threw this WOD think of the families that are struggling threw a much worse pain than a few thrusters.


"Bugaboo"


200 thrusters 35/20kg


See you all in the gym today with a smile on our face and a love for a family and all the other families struggling with this disorder.

Ben, I'm not sure if you're going to check back on this blog, but I wanted to let you know that your story has inspired me to help spread the word about SMA and to crush the Bugaboo WOD this afternoon. My heart aches for your loss, and I congratulate you for your efforts to bring awareness to SMA. God bless you and your family.
