This workout is in honor of a son, nephew, cousin, brother, uncle, dear friend, fiancé, father, and a true inspiration to all he knew.

There are three rounds, each starting off with a 1-mile run or walk followed by a 6-minute interval of 9 & 20 reps respectively as Michael came into this world on 9/20. 

Complete the 3 rounds of the run and 6-minute intervals to celebrate the incredible, though short-lived, 36 years we were able to share with him. 


In Michael's words - "You Got This"


Michael Carr D’Agostino, 36, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 24th, 2021 in a tragic accident in Costa Rica. He was the beloved son of Mario and Mary Carr D’Agostino, loving fiancé to Anika Temperante and a proud father-to-be. Michael was the protective oldest brother to the late Kevin, Elizabeth (Ryan Hogan), Carly (Ryan Letzeiser), Natalie (Jack Driggs) and the late Julie. He was a loving uncle to Reese, Benjamin, and Colin and a nephew, cousin, and loyal friend to countless others. As the oldest of 6 kids, Michael learned responsibility and the importance of hard work at a young age and was groomed to be the best he could be by his father, best friend, and future Best Man, Mario. Their bond went far beyond father and son, Michael always referring to his dad as “his Hero” and looking forward to living his life out, “The Mario Way”! After graduating from Marquette University, Michael achieved the distinguished Chartered Financial Advisor (CFA) designation. He was a gifted businessman, quickly excelling within the Chicago Commercial Real Estate market. Though always working to reshape Chicago’s landscape, his lasting impact will be seen in the relationships he built over the years and the continued good they will bring to the community. Michael was never far from his next adventure. Whether he was seeking strength, health, and happiness by spontaneously exploring the ends of the earth, skiing the steepest slopes, completing a marathon or triathlon or channeling the Wim Hof Method, Michael was forever dedicated to advancing his mental and physical fitness and was always in pursuit of his best self. He practiced daily meditation and exercise, living by the phrase, “Do More. Be Present”! Michael met the love of his life, Anika, in 2015 and asked her to spend their forever together this past December. To all who knew their love story… they completed one another’s lives. They shared not only their love for one another but were thrilled to learn they are expecting a child this September. We know Michael would have been the BEST father and would have shown his son or daughter the true value of life, just like he showed all who knew him.


Michael didn’t get to say farewell, and we didn’t get to say goodbye. Until we meet again… We love you, Michael D.
