Dear Crossfit, I wanted to drop a quick line and thank you for your continued dedication and support for the law enforcement community. Your generosity and genuine concern for the physical well being of police officers is truly appreciated.
Our work combines long periods of inactivity with short burst of extreme physical exertion. Add to that some long runs, hikes, fence climbing and carrying everything from a ram to your partner and it becomes evident just how important well-rounded fitness is. The workouts you provide are so far superior in preparing us for those "ugly days" that comparing them to the academy training or the current gym programs is an exercise in futility.
I don't claim to be any type of elite athlete but I do know that my level of physical readiness for the job at hand has increased dramatically from where I began and continues to go no where but up.
Thank you,

- Ed Conover

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,
