CrossFit Hits the Air Force Times
About freaking time. Air Force people need to catch up when it comes to physical training. I'm glad at least when I started I've spread the knowledge as much as I can, and have brought many Air Force members to CrossFit.

[QUOTE]But most critical to the Marines on hand is the importance of [U]camaraderie over competition[/U].

No one pulls out a tape measure to gauge bicep growth. [U]There’s no list of top performers etched on a dry-erase board to remind participants of their superiority — or inferiority[/U].

“It’s all about community and being noncompetitive,” said Marine Capt. Jose Vengoechea, 31, one of three instructors on hand during the advanced session workout. “[U]No one is competing against anybody but themselves[/U].”
Brilliant. They'll likely have longer fitness careers due exactly to this approach. Dying for points they are not.
