This is the 46th episode of CrossFit Radio, which aired at 6pm PDT on March 18th, 2009.
USMC Maj. Andrew Thompson runs a unique military affiliate. After starting with one trainee, they commonly have over 40 participants per session. They do things very differently at CrossFit Quantico. All workouts are outside. They operate on a non-profit basis, meaning all access to trainers and equipment is free. Access is limited to: active duty military or retired military personnel, DoD civilians and contractors, CFHQ staff and others granted permission from the Maj. Their goal is to “exemplify the Marine Corps functional fitness concept and be an example for other military affiliates to emulate.” It is also interesting to note that they have two of their own Hero WODs.
You can imagine the questions that the value statements above would generate. We did our best to ask them all, plus some you wouldn't expect. We also outlined an essay that Maj. Thompson wrote called, “Characteristics of a World-Class Trainee.”
