This hero workout is dedicated to Kostantinos ‘Kostas” Meligonis who lost his life on September 3, 2020. Kostas was an army paratrooper who died on a nighty mission involving a free fall in the area of Megara, Greece.
He joined the army on December 6, 2007. During those 13 years, he served in the 27th Parachute Squadron and Special Parachute Division having performed hundreds of static belt jumps and dozens of free fall jumps.
Kostas received various trainings including ‘School of Advanced Training for Professional Soldiers,’ ‘Basic Parachute Training School,’ ‘Special Mission Sniper School,’ ‘Technical Climbing School,’ ‘Combat Nurse School,’ and successfully finished the ‘Select School of the Special Paratroopers’ Department,’ one of the hardest and most painful training of the Greek Army.
He had a love for sports from a young age. Kostas was a soccer athlete in his early years and in recent years he grew to love CrossFit. He had competed in several local CrossFit competitions and daily attended Exclusive Fitness Philadelphia @exclusive_fitness_philadelphia (Nea Filadelphia, Greece) who created the workout to honor him.
