“That’s when I knew God intended this ministry to be used in this community for a greater purpose” – Becky Conzelman
As many of you know, the first anniversary of us losing Becky, our Co-Founder and fearless leader for six years, is soon. We love how Kendra, our Chapter Director for St. Petersburg, FL, refers to April 6th, “Becky’s reunion with Jesus in Heaven.”
Kendra had an amazing idea of how we can all honor Becky and her life, as well as have a way to share her story with the fitness community- that we would do CHAMPION in our local FAITH + FITNESS events scheduled on or around the dates of March 26 (her aneurysm) to April 6 (her reunion with Jesus in Heaven).
For those who don’t know, CHAMPION was the workout created in her honor by a coach in Illinois. This workout was done the first week she was in the hospital in boxes around the world, and was even done by professional Games athletes at their annual Reebok summit.
The Original CHAMPION WOD created in her honor by @ixfcf coach, Miles Furr is:
25 Handstand Pushups
20 Deadlifts (135/95)
15 Overhead Squats (135/95)
10 Burpee Box Jump Overs
800 Meter Run
Originally, many gyms and FAITH RXD chapters were planning on hosting events to do this together. With the current climate surrounding COVID-19, we’ve adapted the workout and have created an “At Home” version since many people are not outfitted with home gyms. In response, many of our chapters are hosting virtual/online events to do the workout together.
But please feel free to do this on your own! If you do, make sure you take a picture or a time lapse video, post it, and tag us and add #CHAMPIONWOD.
The Modified CHAMPION WOD to be done at home:
25 Hand Release Pushups
20 Object Deadlifts
15 Object Overhead Squats
10 Object Facing Burpee Jump Overs
800 Meter Run or 1:45-2 minutes out, turn around and come back.
We’d love for everyone to join us as we do this together. Here’s a current list of events that will happening, but many may not be captured. We’ll update this list as more are announced, but we may miss some. Even if it’s not in your city, we want everyone and anyone to “come”! To find a location near you that will be participating, please go to www.faithrxd.org/chapters
These events will be hosted via Zoom. We’d recommend downloading the app and joining by computer, although it will work on your phone as well.
