1:41 CrossFit firebreather Gillian Mounsey came on the show to talk about a special event she has organized: she’s going to do 100 muscle-ups in an hour to raise money for Hope for the Warriors. Mounsey explained what Hope for the Warriors is and how it helps U.S. servicemen and women and their families. She explained how her idea was created, who helped bring it to fruition and what CrossFitters can do to help.
18:36 Maj. Don Clarkson runs the affiliate CrossFit Fort Hood. He talked about what it was like to have Jimi L. and Coach Glassman give a presentation to the senior officers at Fort Hood. Operation Phoenix provided $20,000 worth of equipment, and Maj. Clarkson detailed how the gear made it possible to evaluate soldiers doing CrossFit vs. soldiers doing standard army PT over eight weeks. He talked about the results of the study and how they are working toward implementation of CrossFit post-wide in the units at Fort Hood.
