This is Forged Friday at New Species CrossFit. Today we honor First Responders and all U.S. Military personnel. When it gets tough, when you want to stop, when you can’t breathe and you are sweating your ass off, remember why we are here today…to honor those and the families of those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. For them, keep moving and moving to the best of your ability. Do work Tribe.
Always support our Troops and First Responders. God Bless America
