CrossFit and the military have always had a strong connection. Law enforcement, FireFighters, Military and other first responder careers need the fitness to transition from strength to endurance to power and back. I ended my military career before CrossFit was widespread through the military, but I wish I had been exposed back then. I would have been a better sailor.
Today is Veteran’s Day, and a day to say “thank you” to all those who served before and those that serve now. The burden that Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines bear from war is difficult to understand unless you have served. CrossFit West Nashville regularly participates in a program with the Nashville Chapter of Wounded Warrior Project to provide an opportunity for Wounded Warriors to become part of a team again, to learn to be healthy, and make new friends. If you know of a veteran scared physically or emotionally that would benefit from CrossFit, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email the Wounded Warrior Project. We want to help and say Thank You.
