About the wod
Background: This workout is dedicated to Lorenzo Zanetti, 47, who died suddenly on Jan. 15, 2021, after suffering a heart attack.
Zanetti was a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and owner of Mad Tortuga CrossFit @madtortugacrossfit_rovereto in Rovereto, Italy, where he died.
“(Zanetti) was one of the strongest supporters of the Italian CrossFit community and he dedicated his life to spreading the CrossFit methodology, leading by example,” Matteo Pozzati, a colleague and friend of Zanetti, wrote in an email.
A passionate coach and affiliate owner, Zanetti persevered through the COVID-19 pandemic, offering CrossFit classes online for his members through the gym closure associated with the crisis. Zanetti’s impact on the Italian CrossFit community will continue after his death, and he will be greatly missed.
Zanetti is survived by his girlfriend, Josipa Rimanic, his affiliate community, and many other friends and family.
