"Some guys in my unit did CrossFit for Hope on June 9th here at FOB Pasab, Afghanistan. It was brutally hot. We wanted to show the kids that we were thinking of them, even on the front lines."

I came across CF a few days ago as I had been doing a mainly weights workout & was looking for something for all round fitness. Your CF system sounds just what I've been looking for. I've been weight training with some cardio since December last year & haven't been this fit since I did my Navy recruit training at age 18.I am now 51. Looking forward to giving CF a go. Might begin tonight with one of your earlier in the week workouts since today's a rest day without a WOD. Thanks for a great site & workout program. I'll let you know how I go, if I survive...
Kind regards,
Tony McGurk - Tasmania

I can't say I've ever heard the National Mall called the "Washington Mall". Maybe the National Mall in Washington, DC.

God bless you and people like you Captain Shulz; working out in a place where you can catch a round and you guys are thinking of the kids. This is why I love CrossFit

Great video, thank you for sharing with the community. My daughter is in her 6th week of ISR and just did a Roll/Float sequence with full winter clothes and shoes on...if you have kids, the question is, why wouldn't you enroll them in ISR...

Clearly there's a high risk of getting run over by a Bradley in that tent - thank goodness he has that glow belt on!

Hi just wanted to say that I'm new to crossfit and I'm loving it, but mostly I'd like to say thanks to CPT Schulz and his fellow soilders for the great work their doing over there it's very much appreciated.

@Mel - I live in DC, so I'm a little familiar with the area and lingo.

LOVE THE PIC! This guy gets it. HOPE is bigger than you, bigger than CrossFit, bigger than anything tangible, it is about giving hope to the hopeless.

Best advice is to be smart about what you are doing. Much of Xfit is about pushing yourself harder than you thought was possible. But be safe and pay attention to technique. Scale the WOD if necessary. Have a partner. Watch the instructional videos on this site. Etc. You can probably accomplish a lot on your own, but would likely benefit from some direct input, coaching. Be inspired by the performances of others, but measure your gains against yourself.

yesterday's workout with 2000m, 1000m, 500m rows instead of runs.


awful.... and awfully sore shoulders. whew!

@Johnny baker

I jumped in(a month ago) and have loved every workout(so far :)). I scale back some of the workout. Especially the Olympic lifts cause I haven't done those before. I do a weight that I know I can work on the form and not hurt myself. I watch the videos and the WOD demos help sometimes as well. Eventually I will make it to a certification class or the local Crossfit affiliate(when I can afford). I will try and make it to an affiliate soon so my Olympic lifts will improve quickly. I hope this helps.

CFE "Short Tosh"

3 x Run 100M (Rest 100M time)/Run 200M (Rest 200M time)/Run 400M (Rest 400M time).

Total elapsed time 17:03. Can't escape the feeling that this should be sub-15.

Much of Xfit is about pushing yourself harder than you thought possible. But be smart and use common sense. If necessary, scale the WODs. Technique is very important. Watch the instructional videos. Have a partner who can give you feedback or seek the input of a.coach. Be inspired by others, but measure your gains against yourself.
