BIG FLOYD is almost here.
We’re glad you’re with us.
On Saturday, our Defined community gathers to embody Big Floyd: a tribute workout.
This workout is dedicated to George Floyd, an innocent Black man who was killed tragically at the hands of law enforcement on May 25, 2020. This workout was created and organized by Black Power Cleans, a D.C. based Lifting Club that sought to uplift, honor and acknowledge the Black CrossFit community, by calling upon the whole CrossFit community to honor Black lives with action.
Don’t forget the WHY behind your workout.
STAND FOR ACCOUNTABILITY.
FIGHT FOR JUSTICE.
George Floyd was known as a peace activist and a respected community leader. This workout not only serves as a tribute to George Floyd, but to so many other Black lives lost to police brutality. “We lift for: George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sandra Bland, Philando Castile, Atatiana Jefferson, Walter Scott, Alton Sterling, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Stephon Clark, and sadly, so many more. Rest in Power.”
Come early, stay awhile.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to check-in with your coaches, then head to the park for a coach-led warm up. You’ll have 5 minutes to set up your equipment and workout space after a brief introduction and review of our movement standards.
After you complete your workout, hang out with us. We’ll provide sandwiches and drinks!
Please bring a complimentary side dish, beverage, or dessert to share.
