About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to Bryant Christopher Giard-Chase who suddenly passed away at his home in South Burlington on December 23, 2012. He was only 22 years old.
Born on November 8, 1990, Bryant graduated from South Burlington High School, became a private pilot, and was completing his instrument training at Cornerstone Aviation Flight School in Salt Lake City, Utah. He had ambitions of becoming a pilot for the U.S. Air Force.
Bryant was loved by many and loved many in return. His family and friends mattered most to him. He had a devoted father who shared his love of flying airplanes and was loved deeply by his mother, Ann. He was blessed with a sister, Gillian, and two brothers, Erik and Kyle.
Bryant lived for the times he spent with ‘the boys.’ He shared his years of growing, learning, laughing, loving, and moving forward into adulthood with all of us. From early years onward, Bryant enjoyed activities such as riding dirt-bikes, motorcycles, and snowmobiles, building forts, fishing, and boating on Lake Champlain, spending time with his family at Smugglers’ Notch, and quite simply, just being around the people that he loved.
As a young adult, Bryant’s true passions emerged. He excelled in athletics including CrossFit for which he was certified as a personal and endurance trainer. He also completed a half marathon and had begun training for his first full marathon. Most importantly, Bryant was an incredibly gifted pilot who was truly himself in the air and was only one exam away from becoming instrument rated.
The workout was designed by Jade Jenny and Dani Horan of CrossFit Threshold Training @thresholdtrainingvt (Burlington, VT) where Bryant was one of the earliest community members, in collaboration with Champlain Valley CrossFit (Williston, VT).
