Re: Military leaning away from CrossFit?

My son exited Parris Island with a "hip injury" (tight IT band...) and he did ZERO CrossFit while there!

I injured my back while working in the medical field. Conventional treatment called for surgery followed by physical therapy and pain medication. I'm sure that would have lasted for years. I found CrossFit, I gradually worked my way into the program, cured my bulging disc syndrome by strengthening my core. Having a weak core caused my injury in the first place. I have been pain free since and thanks to Coach Glassman, in better shape than when I was in my 20s and I'm 45.

Yeah, people will shy away from CrossFit....because over 80% of people shy away from anything that is "hard" or "hard work" in general.
