Friday 9-16-2011 (Burpee Challenge 39)
On September 17, 2011, CrossFitters from around the world will come together to endure 17 minutes of one of our most grueling workouts in honor of those men and women who have given a lifetime of service and sacrifice. For 17 minutes, we will push ourselves further, challenge ourselves deeper, feel the doubt and wonder if we can make it, but then remember why we are there and appreciate fully those who we wish to honor. We turn to you, our community of friends and family, to join us by donating what you can or what you are inspired to give to two phenomenal organizations that provide immediate and measurable support without waste or delay. The heart of an athlete can change the game. The soul of an athlete can change the world. Will you support my 17 minutes?

Fight Gone Bad is one of CrossFit's benchmark workouts, which we will be performing, throughout the day, tomorrow at our Grand Opening. It was designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts fight of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest. It was named after B.J. Penn, a professional mixed martial artist who said it was like a "fight gone bad" when asked how it compared to a real fight.
In Fight Gone Bad, participants spend one minute at each of five stations followed by a one-minute break before repeating the circuit for a second round, another break and eventually a third.
