The Murph Wod is an annual event that honors the memory of fallen Navy Seal Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy and celebrates his spirit of courage and determination. And this year, 2023 marks the 15th anniversary of The Murph which makes hosting it even more special!
The Murph Wod is a challenging workout composed of a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats, and another one-mile run all completed in a single session. It’s not for the faint of heart; it’s designed to be an inspirational challenge for athletes who are passionate about fitness and camaraderie.
Our founder, Robert Schwartz is a Navy Veteran and holds Memorial Day as a very special day to honor not just his fallen friends but all the men and women of the US Armed Forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice. What better way as a gym owner to do this, then to host this workout each year and invite not just the athletes of All Fit Orlando to participate, but also the community.
Last year, All Fit Orlando began a partnership with Team Red White and Blue Orlando to expand it's reach to the veteran community and also find new ways for All Fit Orlando to support our local veterans. For the last year, All Fit Orlando hosts a FREE workout on the first Friday of every month for Team RWB Veterans. We asked Robert Schwartz why this event is such a big deal for him every year.
"As a veteran and a business owner, it is extremely important to our mission at All Fit Orlando to support not just our community but our veterans. What better way to do this than to host the biggest veteran workout, on the day to honor veterans, and make it an annual fundraiser to support great veterans services like Team RWB, Wounded Warriors, and The Murph foundation"
This year, All Fit Orlando is an official Murph host, opening it's doors to even more in the community to come in and participate in this event. We asked Schwartz why someone should come in and do the Murph at All Fit Orlando this year. " This year we are going BIGGER than ever! In addition to opening our doors to a larger group in our community to come in and participate, we will have a live DJ, breakfast, snacks, finisher drinks, and completion certificates. This workout isn't easy, but anyone can do it and modify it in their own way. What's most important to us is that people show up and support this great cause by doing their best in the workout and donating a few bucks to help us continue to support these great veterans services."
The 6th Annual Murph at All Fit Orlando is a 100% FREE workout. All They ask is you bring a few bucks or the ability to venmo or zelle to help raise money for Team RWB, Wounded Warriors Project, and The Murph Fund.
