It is with great sorrow that I inform everyone that we lost a young member of our Ultimate Gym family on Tuesday morning. Andrew "Drew" Wright was struck and killed as he rode his bicycle to Myers Park High School. He was a great athlete in the Seven Owl Dojo's Judo & Ju-Jutsu program. Wear green on Thursday to honor and remember such a young man.

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, NY, who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it 'Body Armor.' It was renamed 'Murph' in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.
