Derek I could not agree with you more. I will be going to FLETC in Jan. and had to pass a swim test and physical effeciency battery(PEB) with my agency before being hired. It consisted of 100yd swim, pull 8 pound brick from deep water, tread water for 7 min, suvival float 3min, bench press, illinois agility test, run 1 1/2 miles, sit and reach, and bodyfat test. I scored 95 out of a 100 for my age group (35). The sit and reach and body fat got me. I scored 20 inches on the sit and reach and I know my bodyfat is low, but not low enough to score 100. I ran the 1 1/2 in 11 min, benched 375, agility in 15 sec, hardly ever swim but passed easily.
Crossfit is the way to go for sports minded individuals, law enforcement, military,etc.
I just wished I had found this 20 years ago.

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,
