Passion WOD 2023

Every year, as part of our observance of Easter, we take a moment to reflect on the pain and suffering Jesus experienced when He laid down His life in an act of sacrificial love for the human race.

Gyms and FAITH RXD Chapters around the world host the Passion WOD on Easter Weekend, most of them on Good Friday.

Every year, the workout is the same. Each movement holds significant meaning:

  • Double Unders: To remind us of the lashings he received by a whip with shards of bone and metal that ripped his back.
  • Barbell Carry/Back Rack Stepping Lunges: To symbolize Jesus carrying his own crossbar to his execution site as he took the weight of our sin upon himself.
  • Burpees: To signify him conquering death by rising again.
