Resilient Fitness Honors Military, First Responders

The Resilient Fitness crew with the winners from Team Army.

Resilient Fitness in Wellington celebrated Memorial Day weekend with its first Honor Our Heroes event on Saturday, May 25.

Local Army and Navy officers, after warming up during a high-energy spin class, completed as many circuits as possible in 40 minutes. The circuits included heavy bag squats, pushups, inverted rows, a dead ball wall toss and more. Team Army came out victorious.

Firefighters and police officers also competed in a unique CrossFit challenge called the 31 Heroes Project. Competitors busted out circuits of box jumps, rope climbs, barbell thrusters and running for 31 minutes to honor the 31 service members lost in 2011 when a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan.

In addition to the competitions, attendees were treated to a variety of vendors. Resilient Fitness is located at 11596 Pierson Road, Suite 10, in Wellington. To learn more about Resilient Fitness programs and classes, visit
