Hawkins was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment of Fort Benning, Georgia.

Hawkins’ friends and fellow service members remember his enthusiasm for CrossFit. He often used CrossFit training with his Fire Team and particularly enjoyed wearing weighted body armor during his workouts.

This is a prep for our Memorial Day Murph coming up in two months! That workout involves hundreds of pull-ups, push-ups, squats, and two miles worth of running. Fridays will be used to get in volume and intensity in preparation for this workout! We want you to go hard and potentially wear a weight vest if you intend to wear one for Murph!
