On the 25th of May 2018 Willem van Woerden died in a fatal car crash.
Willem was a close friend, a coach and a member of CrossFit Amsterdam for more than 7 years.
He was only 30 years old and was survived by his wife and two young kids.
We can’t believe it’s been almost a year, to us it still feels like yesterday.

On Saturday May 25th, we will honor him with a work out that we made for him. We will do this with Willem’s family, friends and our community.
This day is not just about doing a WOD in his memory, it’s also about sharing memories and remembering a very special and loved friend.
As we did in August on the first memorial WOD, we would like to collect money to make a donation to his wife and kids for a Summer Holiday.

Willem was a Marine and loved CrossFit!
His WOD is heavy and challenging and include his favorite movements.
We will all do our best to complete this WOD and honor him by doing so.
Of course scaling options will be available too.
