QuoteCrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed our workouts posted daily on this site and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.
We also publish the CrossFit Journal, designed to support the CrossFit community detailing the theory, techniques, and practice d by our coaches in our gym, in essence bringing your garage or gym into ours, making you a part of the CrossFit family.
The banner at the top is a link to the CrossFit website where they offer all the help you might want for your workouts. I'm posting this thread so that any SOF users who are already participating in CrossFit, or who are interested in it have a place to post their numbers, and discuss the WOD's in an environment of their peers, the other SOF users.
I'll be posting the WOD's here every morning for those who would prefer to keep their workout confined to this website, but feel free to check out CrossFits site for more info.
Again, this thread is here for you to get your workout, comment on it, give your times/numbers, and discuss the WOD as you want to.

05 April 2009 - 05:35 PMNo, agg is like the game in a way. If you think you are, you lose. If you think you are, you are not. If you mention it, you lose. If you mention it, you're not agg.
I haven't lost the game since before my enlistment, Can't believe it, all that hard work for nothing.
My revenge: all who read this must share in my misery.
18 February 2009 - 03:13 PMA letter from an operator. Helps to put a lot of things into perspective against those who take the easy route in spitting at the servicemen/women who do the dirty jobs that America doesn't want to be affiliated with. I was going to post this in the blackwater thread to give those downing the operators an idea of what these guys see day to day, but I decided it can hold it's own as a conversation piece of itself. These guys don't know what each and every car out there contains, how do you see the difference between a civilian and murder bomber? You have to make a lot of gut choices, sometimes they're wrong, sometimes they save a life.
I guess the point is that war is not pretty.
“Last Sunday while most of America was enjoying the Superbowl several members of our Task Force were commencing an assault on a terrorist stronghold in Iraq. During the assault two of our brothers from the Navy were shot and killed while clearing a building that was occupied by terrorist insurgents.
Ultimately, the building was reduced and all of the terrorists in it were destroyed by the assault force. Remember these names, Mike and Nate. They were good men doing honorable work in the name of freedom. The terrorists they sought to destroy were responsible for unspeakable acts of evil including the construction of improvised explosive devices and explosives to equip homicide bombers.
For those of you who may not understand the enemy we face out here let me remind you that the previous week this group of terrorists took two innocent and unwitting women who had Downs Syndrome, rigged them with explosive vests and detonated them 20 minutes apart in a crowded market causing several deaths and hundreds of injuries. These terrorists used innocent people as unwitting vehicles to destroy more innocent lives.
There is good and there is evil in this world. The enemy we face is evil. Mike and Nate were fighting on the side of good to prevent further acts of evil that would result in the loss of more innocent lives. The next time you pray I ask you to thank God for giving Mike and Nate the talent and skill that made them great warriors and thank God that he gave them the heart to apply those God given talents to destroy evil and further the cause of freedom in a land far from their home.
Thank God for men like Mike and Nate. Their work is done here now, but there are many of us who will honor their sacrifice by continuing the fight against evil terrorists. They will be remembered through our actions.”
