About the wod
Background: This memorial workout is dedicated to Ron Nieto who passed away on July 15, 2018, after a lengthy and brave battle with cancer. He was 52 years old.
Ron Nieto was a beloved father, husband, friend, and athlete. A cancer diagnosis tried to slow him down but Ron had other ideas. His strength and determination helped him fight a courageous battle and he continued living his best life, making countless memories with those he loved before passing away.
Ron loved being active and this eventually led him to the rigors of becoming a triathlete. This training culminated in completing an Ironman competition and he wore the “required” tattoo with pride. He also enjoyed CrossFit, golf, hunting, fishing, obnoxiously hoppy craft beer, as well as any and everything Garnet and Gold.
This memorial workout was designed by Red Hills CrossFit @redhillscrossfit (Tallahassee, FL, USA) to honor Ron in 2018. In 2019, his gym shared this workout with the rest of the Tallahassee Community.
The chosen movements represent a triathlon race to commemorate Ron as a triathlete.
