Background: This tribute workout is dedicated to Alice Elderton, a NHS worker, for her 30th birthday during the COVID pandemic in 2020. She was born on December 4, 1990.

Alice has had a history of anorexia from the age of 15. She used to be a gymnast and sprinter but lost all her weight and strength, and had completely stopped training – until she found CrossFit. Since then, her motivation is outstanding and she looks to inspire and motivate other people. She lost her brother 4 years ago when he was 29 years old, after losing his battle with mental health. He had suffered from poor eyesight all his life and went completely blind a year before he took his own life.

The workout was designed by Phillip Myerscough @pipovskipitrovski, a friend and fitness instructor, to celebrate Alice on her 30th Birthday, hence the 30 reps of each exercise on each round.

– Round 1 is in honour of her and her 30th birthday
– Round 2 is in honour of her brother
– Round 3 is in honour of her strength
– Round 4 is in honour of her desire to inspire and motivate others who have been through similar life situations.

The movements chosen were picked to create a full body work, really pushing the body to its limit on this lengthy workout.
