On Saturday and Sunday this weekend, members will have the opportunity to complete “Breonna Taylor” during the Open Gyms or a regular class. Check PushPress for available class time options.
This memorial workout is dedicated to Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency room technician, who was killed on March 13, 2020, after being confronted by Louisville police who were executing a “no-knock” search warrant on her apartment.
At the time of her death, Breonna was working at the University of Louisville Health as an essential worker during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This workout was designed by Iron Roots Athlete @iron.roots.athelete as part of their initiative to continue fostering conversations on the progress of supporting people of color in the fitness community. It was one of the initial memorial WODs for their ‘Walk With Us: A Program Series With a Purpose.’
The Numbers: 26-The age of Breonna 6-The least number of times Breonna was shot by the police.
