On February 28, 2024, the Coast Guard community will gather at gyms, parks, air stations, and on vessels at sea to pay tribute to fallen heroes as part of this year's USCG Aviation Workout to Remember.

The "6535 Memorial Workout" was created to honor the four aviation crew members of CG-6535, who were lost in a 2012 crash in Mobile, Alabama. Today the annual event honors all who have died on Coast Guard missions and trainings. Since 2012, the Workout to Remember has raised more than $23,000 for the Coast Guard Foundation’s Fallen Heroes Scholarship Fund.

According to the event's organizers, the USCG Aviation Workout to Remember has always been about more than a fitness event.

"It is a tradition that challenges us, humbles us, and allows us to dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor, respect, and remember those who gave everything they had. It is a staple of the Coast Guard aviation and fitness communities," they shared.

We invite you to join us in support of the cause by completing the #cgwodtoremember on or around February 28, 2024.

The USCG Aviation Workout to Remember honors Coast Guard members who made the ultimate sacrifice and supports those they left behind.

THE WORKOUT

4 ROUNDS
400m Run
65 Air Squats
35 Burpee Pull-Ups

Two Divisions:

  • Individual: All movements and reps are completed by a single individual.
  • Teams of 2-4 people: All team members complete the run portions together. During other movements, reps may be divided as necessary, but one member must be working at all times. All reps of a single movement must be completed prior to the team beginning the next movement.

Movement Standards and Scaling:

  • 65 Air Squats: Full squats performed to below parallel position (hip crease below knee).
  • 35 Burpee Pull-Ups: A complete burpee (chest and thighs touching ground to standing position) followed by one pull-up with chin above bar level. Scaling may be performed by using a step-up box for jumping pull-ups, or by the use of band assisted pull-ups or ring-rows. If such scaling is used, complete the burpees and pull-ups separately. If participants are unable to complete a pull-up, complete a full burpee, jump and touch the pull-up bar.
  • 400 Meter Run: Leave the workout area, run to the designated mark and return.

Time Limits: We recommend a 60 minute time cap for completion of the WOD for both divisions.
