CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A group of locals worked-out and honored fallen soldiers at the same time Saturday morning.

Redline Fitness in Corpus Christi held an event called Murph 2020 today.

The event is named after Lieutenant Michael Murphy, a navy seal, who died in combat in 2005.

It also honors Captain Doug Commons who died last year.

The Murph workout consists of a one-mile run, a hundred pull-ups, two hundred push-ups, three hundred air squats, and another one-mile run.

"We're honoring our local and national veterans and first responders and by doing that we are doing a couple of workouts, one of them is the Murph and that one is dedicated to Navy Seal Lt. Michael Murphy," said E.J. Lopez the co-owner of Redline Fitness.

There was also free food and free haircuts given out to veterans and first responders.
