Fourteen years ago on September 11, 2001, the United States was
brutally attacked. Four planes were hijacked by terrorists. Two of
the planes were sent crashing into the Twin Towers in New York,
New York; the third plane into the Pentagon in Washington D.C.; and
the fourth into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. By the end of the
attacks, the death toll had mounted to nearly 3,000 souls, including the
227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard the four planes and 343 and 72
police and firemen respectively.
The damage done during these attacks has had a lasting effect on
our country, and today we recall the full impact of those events that
unfolded a sleepy Tuesday in September. Today we pay tribute to those
civilians’ whose lives were taken from us too soon and honor those
policemen and firefighters who fought to protect us.


The workout symbolizes the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001,
in its design.  The date and year are represented by the row
(i.e. 2001 meters) and the 9 movements, each including 11 repetitions.
The 125-pound Thrusters represent the deaths that occurred at the
Pentagon; the 175-pound Power Clean stands for AA Flight 175
 that collided with the South Tower; Flight 77 and Flight 93 were
combined and are represented in the 170-pound Deadlift; and the
110-pound Push Jerk signifies the number floors in each of the Twin
Towers.

Pay a small tribute to those who were lost. Never forget – 9/11
