Re: Crossfit in the Coast Guard

I used to do it on my own up in New Jersey, I have since left there. There was a guy there that was really into CrossFit, and started to get some cool stuff for it. There was even talk about getting a lvl 1 cert class together for a little bit. Then he went to some CG fitness class, and came back saying CrossFit was lame , so all the cool stuff stopped showing up.

A group of CG was on the CFit website on one of the WODs once. But I haven't heard or seen any groups doing it. Every now and again people for C-schools would roll through the TRACEN, and I would find someone doing the same thing as me, but they were few and far between.

A L1 guy at the CGA in New London, CT runs CF-based classes over there. He was trying to get a mil non-profit going, but I don't think it panned out.

Re: Crossfit in the Coast Guard

Is the CG paying for CrossFit certs?

Re: Crossfit in the Coast Guard

We have an affiliate in Elizabeth City, NC & the CG paid for members of the commands to attend the Level 1 Cert. I also know Mobile, AL has an affiliate as well as CGHQ.

They tried to get a lvl 1 cert in Cape May. Was going to be for the highly qualified "Unit Health Coordinators" but the CG wasn't going to pay for members to attend. Don't think many of them wanted to shell out their own dough. Kinda sucked though b/c I was gonna try and hop in on the class, I wouldn't of mined paying either.

The TRACEN isn't known for their level of fitness though. Manditory base wide PT test was planned, but shot down due to a base wide panic.
