Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) hosted the 2014 Heroes WOD (workout of the day) at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, AR on June 7th. The competition was a Crossfit-based workout consisting of three stations where competitors could do the workout “RX,” as prescribed, or scaled:

1st Station – 21-15-9 reps
Overhead squats
KB swing
Box jumps (M24″/W20″)

Run 800m

2nd Station – 15-10-5 reps
Sand bag squat clean
Deadlifts
Walking lunges w/plate overhead (M45#/W25#) (2x50m)

Run 800m

3rd Station – 21-15-9 reps
Slamball sit ups (M25#/W20#)
Hanging power snatch
Partner fireman carry (2x50m)

The 1st Annual Heroes WOD also featured retired Marine Cpl. Nick Perales. Nick was injured in Feb. of 2011 when he stepped on an IED while serving in Afghanistan. He suffered several wounds, shattering his hand, hip, ankle and an amputation to the lower portion of his right leg. It was truly amazing to see Nick participating in this WOD! Such an inspiration to everyone in attendance! Nick is also a proud member of SDIA and our Lone-Star Chapter in Houston, TX.

The Heroes WOD (CrossFit’s acronym for Workout of the Day) was open to the public, and had CrossFit boxes (or gyms) and athletes from around the region participating in an exciting and challenging two-person team competition. (Team winners and times are listed below.) The Heroes WOD also included an individual Kids WOD for those ages 8-17. Prizes were awarded to top finishers in each adult division, as well as to the overall winning CrossFit box. The Box winning the overall competition received the SDIA Heroes WOD Guideon, a “traveling trophy” that will pass from one Box to the next, or remain where it is, based on each years winner. This years winning Box was CrossFit NWA of Bentonville, AR.

The event was held to honor our nation’s Sheep Dogs, and funds raised will provide support for Sheep Dogs in need (Military and first responders and their families) and communities devastated by natural disasters.
