Liutenant Murphy was killed in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he named it “Body Armor”. We will honor a focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

- Our annual MURPH Day has always benefited the Navy SEAL Foundation. This year, we’re donating all funds to a new cause. Join us in our efforts to rally behind our very own Genevieve Schmidt and her family in their time of need. Genevieve is CrossFit Austin’s phenomenal Administrative Coordinator. Let’s show the power of community and the force human connection can have as we come together, sweat together, work together, and band together to raise money for her brother’s recovery fund.

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” – Vince Lombardi
