CrossFit HQ: Embrace Women as Heros

Crossfit is an amazing organization for creating a community about continually improving peoples lives. It brings out the athlete in every participant. I love working out at my CrossFit affiliate.


CrossFit has two forms of benchmark workouts. The first one is called "The Girls". These are the CrossFit standard workouts. The second type of workouts are called Hero workouts. Hero workouts are much more challenging and can take over an hour to complete. Hero workouts are named after soldiers who are KIA. I have deep respect for naming a challenging workout after soldiers who have given their life for our country.


I recently completed my first Hero WOD, Murph. It was very difficult but I felt very accomplished afterwards. I am writing this petition because I discovered that there are 103 Hero workouts, and only one of the heros is female with 102 workouts named after male soldiers. Female soldiers are just as heroic as male soldiers. I demand that CrossFit address the issue of feminism and equal representation in who they consider heros.
