Register Today for the Salute, Inc. 5k + Tactical Challenge Sunday, May 29, 8 a.m. The race starts at Miner School and finishes at Recreation Park. The event features individual and team divisions. Elite Athletic Development | CrossFit Arlington Heights is the reigning team division champ.

The Tactical Challenge pairs a 5k run with a series of military-style calisthenic movements using 20-pound sandbags for women and 40-pound sandbags for men. In past years, participants lugged their sandbag through four, 25-foot Army Crawls, plus used the sandbags to complete CrossFit Games Push Ups, Ground to Overhead lifts, Anchored Sit Ups, and Bag Hop Burpees. Participants May 29 may face those — as well as new — challenges.

The Tactical Challenge has raised more than $11,500 to help meet the financial, physical and emotional needs of military service members, veterans and their families. Event sponsor Elite Athletic Development | CrossFit Arlington Heights donates 100 percent of the funds raised by the Tactical Challenge to Salute, Inc. Questions?

Celebrate & Honor Malaika C Thursday, April 14.

admin : April 12, 2016 10:06 pm : News

MalaikaJerkJoin us Thursday, April 14 as we celebrate and honor EAD | CFAH athlete Malaika Corsentino with a special workout to commemorate her life and contribution to our training community.

Malaika was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma, a very aggressive form of brain cancer, shortly after she competed in the 2013 Athena Classic. Malaika, Mom to three young children and Wife to fellow EAD | CFAH athlete John, returned to CrossFit after brain surgey and while still undergoing radiation and chemotherapy. She vowed to relearn her favorite CrossFit movements, including Double Unders and the Olympic Lifts … which she did in amazingly short order. She continued training throughout radiation treatment and several courses of chemo, hitting PRs arlong the way. She had hoped to once again compete in the Athena Classic.

Malaika died April 14, 2015, and we introduced her tribute workout at the 2015 Athena Classic on Saturday, April 18.

“For Malaika”
Complete as many rounds as possible in 7 minutes:
7 Snatch (85# / 25# DB Single Arm Alternating Snatch)
14 Pull Ups / Hanging Knee Raises
28 Double Unders / 56 Singles

Malaika’s strength and grace continues to inspire all who knew her, and we hope it will inspire you, as well.

Donations in Malaika’s honor can be made to Harley Helping Hands.
