This Memorial WOD is dedicated to Matthew Anthony Fiorello who was one of the 4 lawyers who died in a plane crash in western Palm Beach County on March 8, 2019 as the group were returning to North Palm Beach from Tampa after meeting a new client.

Matthew was born on September 18, 1982 to Anthony and Kathi Fiorello. As a graduate of Clemson University, he was an avid Tigers fan.

We first found the workout posted by Hard Exercise Works (HEW) (San Marco, FL) who told us it was created by HEW’s Palm Beach Gardens (FL) location @hewgardens – where Matt trained. Nick Perry, owner of HEW Palm Beach Gardens said Matt had been a member for about 2 years; his wife even longer. “Our team designed the workout around his age, the age of his children, and the date he passed away in a tragic plane crash. We made sure to include box jumps because he loved them so much, he bought and brought his own box to the gym to share with everybody!”

Fiorello specialized in motor vehicle defense and graduated from Nova Southeastern Law School in 2008. He was the lead singer of the all-lawyer tribute band, Disbarred. He loved to spend time with his wife, daughters, and their dog at the beach, being active, or doing anything outdoors. If he wasn’t watching golf on TV, he was out playing. He is survived by his wife Rachel; daughters London (5) and Arden (3); his dog Hurley (12); parents Anthony and Kathi; brothers Michael and Danny; grandparents BJ Fiorello, Joan Savio, and Herbie Goldsmith; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

The rep scheme signifies the following:
36 – Matt’s age
3 – Arden’s age
5 – London’s Age
6 – Years Married
2019 – The year he was lost
