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.

Re: CrossFit Hits the Air Force Times

But most critical to the Marines on hand is the importance of camaraderie over competition.

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

“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. “No one is competing against anybody but themselves.”
Brilliant. They'll likely have longer fitness careers due exactly to this approach. Dying for points they are not.
