Memorial Day Murph + CrossFit Games Semifinals

“You are never out of the fight.” – Michael Murphy

Deep Squats for The Fallen

The announcement has been made every day for weeks that we will be meeting at CFPA on Monday, May 27th at 9am to perform the CrossFit Hero Workout known as “Murph”. Myriad scaling options are available. Please speak with your coach before Monday so we can get a gameplan together for you to have a solid workout with your gym-mates.

In the lead up to Memorial Day I want to provide some of the story and background to Michael Murphy and the workout performed in his honor and the honor of all those that have fallen in battle.


Murph is a CrossFit Hero workout that stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of U.S. Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, who died heroically in the line of duty in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005.

Murph was introduced as a CrossFit Hero workout on Aug. 18, 2005, and has become a long-standing tradition observed by CrossFit and a broader global community of athletes. Thousands of CrossFit gyms program Murph each year on Memorial Day as a way to honor Lt. Murphy and all others who have served.

There is a wonderful movie about Murph that is available on Amazon title Murph: The Protector. It’s his story shared by friends and family. I highly recommend it and I strive to live a life that my family, friends and acquaintances would speak about me in such a way as they do him.

Immediately following “Murph” we will take a group photo and commence our Brunch themed potluck that will double as a High School Graduation celebration for Nicole Dymmel. We are honored that so many of you have watched and contributed to her growing up into the young woman she is today. (Some have known her since she was 3 years old.)
