Honor Week 2018 begins today at Purpose Training Center. A Hero WOD or two will be programmed everyday this week. Please do your best to attend 4 workouts this week. Do not worry about performing the workouts “Rx.” Do what you can do, the important part is to work hard, get outside your comfort zone, push past your perceived limitations, as undoubtedly the Heroes we honor this week did throughout their lives. Take care of yourselves this week, eat well, drink a lot of water, pay attention to post workout recovery, and stretch, etc.
