Today marks the second annual Royal Marines Corps CrossFit Championships. A massive deal for the lads who have worked tirelessly to integrate the concept within their training.
Politics exist everywhere, and is rift within the military. I was once asked by a Sergeant Major of a very well respected UK Special Forces regiment while teaching him to Air Squat…”so you’re telling me that this stuff is going to get me fitter and more prepared for the job that I have been doing for the last 18 years??” “Yep!”…”Sir” 😬
It’s taken a long time, but CrossFit is now firmly routed within the highest levels of the British Military. Not only when in service but following. The Community has gotten a grip of those who desperately need it, and has literally saved their lives.
Tomorrow is a massive celebration and a big FUCK YOU to all those who kept slamming doors in our faces. Congratulations to those utter legends, the most selfless and humble humans on the planet, who have worked like dogs to make it a success.
It is only just the beginning!
And, guess the unbelievably talented one of your own who designed this bad ass logo…
