The workout itself is completely symbolic of 9/11. The 2001 meter run/row represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represents the date (9/11). Even the weights have meaning:

The 125 pound Shoulder to Overhead and Back Squat represents the number of deaths that occurred at the Pentagon. The 175 pound power clean symbolizes the AA Flight 175 that hit the South Tower. The 170 pound deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined. And the 110 pound thrusters represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center. The 343 in part B represents the 343 Firefighters who lost their lives that day.
