Re: Military leaning away from CrossFit?

Most of the email traffic is from civilians. I assume fitness center managers. I assume most of these are NSCA certified or the like. Do you think they may have an interest in banning crossfit? My real questions is, "what do they have a problem with?" Most of the crossfit movements are not unique to crossfit. Are they going to prohibit all weight lifting, running, rowing, body weight exercises (pull ups, push ups, setups, squats etc). If I were still in the AF, and they banned crossfit or came out in opposition to crossfit workouts, I would take the 5k WODs and anything that combined running push ups and sit ups to my commander and refuse to take my fitness test because it was against AF policy.
