Hey, I went through PI last year and this program didn't exist then. Then again, recruit already had crossfit. It's called the quarterdeck. Where else will you find groups doing a couple hundred pushups, crunches, mountain climbers and side straddle hops in the space of a few minutes? Except for the pit.

Josh- been out of the office a bit, but I'll hit you up on the GAL tomorrow. Sounds like you've got what I need to help kick this ball up the hill, and I'd be really interested to find out how well things are going for the recruits and the instructors and staff.

I've worked with Marine Corps Officer Candidates (both ROTC and PLC/OCS) and a few junior officers and MCEPS here at Texas A&M for nearly three years now, and helped 1LT Brian Abrams, USMC, introduce the crews around here to Joint Mobility, kettlebell lifting, and CrossFit. I've helped several of my buddies go through OCS, and more than one has commented that "CrossFit pretty much defines PT over there [at Quantico]." I still haven't been able to convince anyone that Kipping Pullups are great, but they sure do love those kettlebell swings, L-Pullups, and Burpees. No more crunches except for the PFT, if you catch my drift.

Shoot me a PM with your e-mail address, or just e-mail me at , and I'll give you any resources I have on strength, conditioning, or whatever else you need.

Also, having your entire crew pool in $100 and buying every single CFJ will help you and yours out tremendously. Very good info there to start with. Tip: Have each member of your platoon read one Journal, and then give a didactic on it to the rest of the platoon. It's freaking awesome for helping people dissemenate information, and teaches valuable presenting and hands on coaching skills.

Semper Fi.

Go straight to the source, this sounds like a project Greg and Lauren would like to have direct impact on;

CrossFit has resources in NC, and there will be a Cert there in March so the whole gang will be in town!

Semper fi,
