CrossFit Affliction – Ft Lauderdale serves all of South East Florida with clients from all over Broward County. Our Affiliate has a great client base to which we have all become more of a family or community. On December 5th many CrossFit Gyms around the Country participated in the below workout called the “Lumberjack 20”.
Please take a moment to read the comments below which explains why this workout was programmed and why we should all come together as a family or community and support our fellow crossfitters and military during this tragic time.

Many in the CrossFit community were affected by the tragic shootings at Fort Hood, but none as directly as one of our affiliates, Lumberjack Crossfit . Four members of that affiliate were killed.
CrossFit is launching a hero WOD fundraiser for our four fallen Soldiers. On December 5th, we are asking affiliates and individuals to do two things: participate in the workout (as a display of solidarity with Lumberjack CrossFit) and to reach out to family, friends, and strangers to donate whatever you can.
With the help of the CrossFit community, we can assist the men and women at Ft. Hood and Lumberjack CrossFit to raise money for the families of the fallen, and the future needs of the approximately 30 wounded.
The long-term needs of these families and the wounded are significant; many of the wounded are still in intensive care. Most will not fully recover from being shot multiple times at near point blank range with a .357.
Our community clearly has the ability and commitment to make a difference for these folks. Let’s turn out on the 5th and show our support by registering as a fundraiser now.
