Saluting Bravery: This Veteran’s Day, Take On the WOD Chad at CrossFit Angier

Rise and Shine, CrossFit Angier Tribe!

Hey, you! Yes, you—the one debating between the kettlebell and the barbell. Put down the chalk and listen up, because we’ve got something special brewing for Veteran’s Day. This year, we’re not just doing any WOD; we’re taking on the legendary “Chad.”

Why Chad? Here’s the Intel 🇺🇸

The WOD Chad is named in honor of Navy SEAL Chad Wilkinson, who took his own life in 2018 due to the effects of numerous deployments. Chad involves a whopping 1,000 box step-ups. Yeah, you read that right—a thousand. The workout aims to bring awareness to the mental health struggles that many of our brave service members face. It’s intense, purposeful, and it embodies the spirit of resilience.

But Wait, There’s More!

We get it, not everyone is ready to tackle a beast like Chad. No worries! We’re also featuring a less intense WOD option, so you can honor our veterans in a way that suits your fitness level. Stay tuned; we’ll drop the details soon.

Let’s Get Together For a Cause

This is your chance to not only test your limits but also to show your support for those who’ve truly pushed their boundaries for our country. We’ll have a donation box set up for a veterans’ charity, so bring your grit and your generosity.
