  1. I was JUST thinking about him yesterday. This looks fittingly…intense.

  2. I remember this workout very well. It was tough, but there’s no giving up when you think about Matt and his positive can do attitude. I’m sorry I’ll be missing this one.

  3. Wish we could be there to honor the man. We’ll do our best to rise it up for him. Orah!
