Compass CrossFit – GPP WOD
People celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ in different ways, but this Easter we’ll celebrate it CrossFit style by doing the ultimate Hero WOD… THE JESUS WOD.
It is a workout meant to symbolize the sacrifice Jesus made for us and it is an unforgettable experience.
When performing this WOD you are encouraged to scale the prescribed weights if necessary as this workout is structured a bit differently in that if you put the bar down (any time other than when prescribed in rounds 3, 7 & 9), you are NOT allowed to continue. This is in order to respect the suffering our Lord Jesus Christ went through on our behalf.
The workout is undeniably brutal. It will be a time to reflect on the gift all of us have been given from Jesus’ sacrifice.
Even if you are not going to participate, we would love for you to come by, see what it is all about and offer moral support for your community.
