This “Artie Stevens” Memorial WOD was designed by Naptown Fitness (Indianapolis, IN, USA) as a tribute to the man who they described as the epicenter of the local CrossFit, fitness, and health revolution in Indianapolis. Artie died suddenly on November 3, 2017. Naptown Fitness hosted an event, first bringing athletes together to remember Artie with this WOD, about three weeks later on November 28.

“Arthur “Artie” Stevens IV was the owner of Indy’s Kitchen, Artie’s Paleo On The Go, and Artie’s On Central. Every day he strived to make days better with his vision of Artie’s Paleo On The Go. He connected with over 50 different fitness facilities and impacted even more lives. To honor his legacy we ask that you help provide for the future of his children.”
