Next Step PT: Is Back Pain Slowing You Down?

NEWSLETTER The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body


I wanted to share with everyone an amazing experience I had recently - to not only do something I love (exercise) but to also honor a Long Island hero. Every year around Memorial Day most CrossFit gyms have their members perform a special workout to honor a fallen Navy SEAL. For those of you who are

The hero that we were honoring was Michael Murphy, who was from Long Island. He was a Navy Seal killed in action. Many of you may have heard of him as he was one of the Seals in the book and now movie “Lone Survivor”. The story is about 4 SEALs who were ambushed in Afghanistan while looking for a Taliban leader. Only one of the four SEALS survived and unfortunately Michael Murphy was killed. As a SEAL, Michael trained very vigorously, keeping his fitness in top shape. One thing that he would do every week was a particularly difficult workout. He would run a mile, then do 100 pull-ups, 200 pushups, 300 squats, and then run another mile. (continued inside)

unfamiliar with CrossFit, it is a type of gym that has group classes throughout the day. Everyone does the workout of the day for that specific day. The workouts are constantly varied each day and are done at a high intensity. It’s a great workout!
