Dear Crossfit,
I have considered myself something of an athlete for the past 17 years. …Then one day, a friend turns me on to your website. I was fascinated by the approach and thought I'd give it a try. The overhead squats damn near killed me. My push-up and pull-up numbers are pathetic. I just did my first set of Tabata squats - and almost threw up. Turns out I'm not - and probably never was - in good shape. But, now I am at least aware of my deficiencies and I look forward each week, with great delight, to see what type of pain and suffering you're going to throw my way. Thanks for the great site and sharing the information.

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,
