A collection of exercise routines and inspiring stories honoring the valiant men and women who gave their lives in service to their country
Bell, Gallant, Pike, Legion 8, Jenny . . . These are the names of workouts created by the Crossfit community in tribute to the men and women who lost their lives in service to their country. In The Hero Workouts, an active duty sailor in the United States Navy presents over 100 of these honorific workouts, each named for a fallen hero and accompanied by the story of their bravery, sacrifice, and honor on and off the battlefield.

By participating in these workouts, one gains the opportunity to revere an individual who has made the ultimate sacrifice. Taking the time to remember these men and women is a powerful part of the healing process, whether you are grieving on a personal level or in response to a collective loss we all feel. The stories behind these workouts are emotional and moving—stories of courage, family, loss, and grief.

Author Carter Henry has agreed to donate 100% of her earnings from the sale of The Hero Workouts to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). SOWF provides college scholarships for the surviving children of fallen Special Operations Forces, family & educational counseling, and financial grants to severely-wounded Special Operations Forces service members.
