Where were you when the first tower crumbled to the ground? What is your most vivid memory of that day? What makes you grateful for where you are in your life today? Today is a day that many of us take time to reflect on such a powerful and sad day in our history. A day that means a lot of heartache to some and a lot of strength to others. On this day, we like to take a moment out of our day to dedicate a moment to those that lost their lives, to those that fought hard during our country’s state of emergency and those that need a bit of extra strength today.
And to show our strength we like to push ourselves to the limits with a workout that is very fitting in remembrance of a day like today. Many people across the country have performed this workout or one very similar. We challenge you to do what is right for your fitness level but not have fear in pushing your body a little harder. Pushing it a little harder to honor those that had to push their bodies beyond their limits to try and save the lives of others.
The World Trade Center Workout
There were 110 floors in the World Trade Center, more floors than any other building in the world at the time.
We challenge you today to climb as many stairs as you can to reach 110 floors.
Keep in mind when trying this workout, that you probably don’t have the ability a set up where you have the perfect amount of stairs to equal one floor. Whatever you pick to climb, count out the number of stairs. One floor equals generally 12 to 13 stairs. So 12 x 110 is 1,320 stairs. Figure out how many stairs you have access to in order to climb them up once. Take 1,320 and divide by the number of stairs you have to figure out how many times you need to climb up your set of stairs.
Good luck and try pushing your limits!
