Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to Rocco J. Urciuoli who passed away peacefully at the age of 100, on November 24, 2019.

One of eight children, Rocco was born on May 2, 1919, in the family home on South Compo Road Westport, CT. He was drafted to serve in the United States Army during WWII, stationed in the South Pacific, then Fort McClellan, Alabama where he trained troops. After Honorable Discharge, as a veteran, he returned to live in Westport where he built several houses, worked for the Town of Westport, and retired from Emery Air Freight.

“Rocco” was submitted to us by its designer and grandson of Rocco, Level-1 CrossFit Coach Dan Urciuoli. In his submission, Dan told us that Rocco started every day at dawn with a fitness routine that included pushups and dumbbell work.

According to Dan, the rep scheme signifies:
– 3 rounds for the number of children
– 5-2-19 for his birthday
– 11-24-19 for the day of his passing
– 1919 meter row is for the year he was born
– 2019 meter row is for the year he passed
