100 Pull-Ups/Assisted Pull-Ups/TRX Rows/Lat Pull-Downs with long band
1 Mile Walk/Run/Jog
DO I HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO PULL-UPS TO DO THE MURPH CHALLENGE?
No! We are offering plenty of options to create a “pull” exercise that you can substitute for pull-ups. When you register, you have the option of selecting the “Modified Murph”. This will assure that you have access to TRX and other equipment to assist you with pull-ups, rows, or a combination of the two!
CAN I DO THE MURPH CHALLENGE IF I'M JUST BEGINNING MY FITNESS JOURNEY?
Absolutely! Our trainers will meet with you and provide you with a training plan based on your current fitness level. We will also do check-ins and offer a practice run halfway through. In addition, we are offering discounts on personal training, so if you are looking to improve your fitness a little more quickly, we would love to set you up with a trainer!
DO I HAVE TO WEAR THE WEIGHTED VEST?
Absolutely not! The Murph Challenge is all about pushing yourself and supporting a GREAT cause. Most participants choose not to wear the vest their first time (or even every time) and there is nothing wrong with that at all! You will still be able to say you completed the Murph Challenge!
WHEN DO I SHOW UP FOR THE CHALLENGE? / WHAT IF I'M OUT OF TOWN ON MEMORIAL DAY?
Once everyone is registered, trainers will put together waves of participants, so everyone has an opportunity to do the Murph at a time that works for them. We will do the official challenge on the morning of Memorial Day, and then hold one additional opportunity for those out of town Memorial Day Weekend.
WHAT DO I BRING TO THE MURPH CHALLENGE?
Please wear workout clothes and appropriate shoes for the walk/jog/run. Bring a water bottle and a sweat towel. If you plan on using a weighted vest and have one, please bring it. If not, no problem. Either skip the vest, or we will have one for you to use!
