CrossFit for rescue workers

I was wondering if there were any rescue workers interested in finding programming specifically for them. Recently, I began publishing some of my programming on http://wildernessathletics.com/YOU MUST ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE. and it is geared directly to Search and Rescue Technicians, wilderness guides, trackers, hunters, hikers, and other outdoors people.

One of the most beautiful things about CrossFit is it's versatility. Some use it to prepare for the "Unknown and Unknowable", while others use it to prepare for very specific challenges. I have been reaching out to Wilderness Athletes to help them get into shape for the unique environments they find themselves.

Re: CrossFit for rescue workers

good deal. looks like the workouts are legit.

not sure if this is something you are trying to start up or if it is just a personal blog for yourself, but you might want to be aware there is already a company called wilderness athlete so be aware before you find yourself with headaches over trademarks and such.

if you are into doing CF type stuff for mountain climbing, rescue, and hunting you might find these sites interesting to look at

http://www.mountainathlete.com/

http://traintohunt.com/

http://www.militaryathlete.com/

all links WFS


also MT from GymJones knows a little about the mountains

it seems alot of people in these types of things have gone to similar styles of training. good luck and much success in your pursuits

Re: CrossFit for rescue workers

Thanks for the homework. I am glad that you approve of the initial stages of the site. I will look into that other site, although it seems to be a sport-nutrition company. It would be good for me to send off an email, just so I don't step on any toes.

As for those other sites, you are correct, other people have programming that touches on the outdoors. Mountain Athlete for those doing professional athletics outdoors, Military Athlete by the same guy for (obviously) military persons, and Fit to Hunt for hunters. There's also Fit for Duty for firefighters, but still nothing for recreational outdoors men and women, nor for rescue workers. I am a Search and Rescue Technician, but I would consider myself an outdoorsman first. There is probably a lot of crossover. Ultimately, it would come down to what programming you like better, and which you think better fits your needs.
