"...The moral is, while I am not up to the standards of crossfit, I have only been training with the WOD and parallets for about four weeks. The difference four weeks made is incredible. I have easily surpassed the once thought "best shape of my life" marker. Plus, switching to a 40% protein, 40% fat, 20% carb diet has helped. I thought I would be tired as hell, but after 6 weeks on the diet, I am invigorated. Today I will run three miles and see how my endurance is. I bet I run the sucker in 22 minutes!...
Thanks so much for such a difference."

I am a Staff Sergeant in the Marines, and a devoted CrossFit member. I have been on the team for six weeks, and the results are almost scary. I am in the best shape of my life, lighter, stronger, faster, and way healthier. No more joint pain.
I have been trying to adapt the CrossFit plan to the unit training that I do for my Marines. We stand a very real chance of being in a nasty place within the next six months, and I want them to be ready.
I myself just returned from a seven month deployment to the asshole of the earth called the Persian Gulf. I was hoping to get some ideas on how to follow the plan, because obviously I do not have access to 25 Concept II rowers, or even 25 weight sets. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I promise to send you a great Moto picture of the group if you can help us out.

Thank You,
