Remembering Andrew Schwiesow.

Remembering Andrew Schwiesow.


Sunday September 18th will be 1 year ago that Andrew Schwiesow passed away far too early in life. Andrew was a member of Verve, a father of two, a supportive brother, a wonderful son, and for many a great friend. We chose to honor Andrew’s memory with a workout and we would like to honor it again this year. Next Saturday, September 24th, we will be hosting Andrew’s memorial WOD:

4 Rounds for time:
21 Calorie row
11 Power clean, 85#
28 Wallball shots, 20#
8 Power snatch, 85#

Andy Schwiesow had been a member of Verve since April 2011. He regularly came to classes, with his most favorite being the barbell focused specialty classes. And his most, most favorite being the classes focused on the Olympic lifts. Andy’s first workout as a member of Verve was 4-21-11 and Andy’s birthday is 8-28-85. A workout built for a tall man with an enjoyment for throwing around a barbell.

We would like to open this workout up again to anyone interested in honoring Andy, we simply ask that you sign up in MBO to reserve your spot in class. If you are a CrossFit newbie, we also ask that you allow us to scale you appropriately, we promise the intent will still be there. If you can not join us on Saturday, perhaps you can fit this workout in wherever you are. If you are able to do the workout, please post a picture and perhaps your favorite Andy memory, use the hashtag #wodingforAndy so we can see everyone. 

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments section.
