Celebrating Freedom and Independence

It’s a natural relationship, seeing as CrossFit has a long-standing history with law enforcement and with the military. CrossFit Repentance is housed inside the Waterford Fire Department in Waterford, WI. The U.S. Army just formed a competitive CrossFit team. The Marine Corps partnered with CrossFit for the 2018 CrossFit Games, bringing us the event “Battleground.”

Maj. Gen. James Bierman, the commanding general of Marine Corps Recruiting Command, writes, “From the very beginning, the cultures of the Marine Corps and CrossFit have aligned perfectly. As Marines, we don’t know what to expect, so we work hard — train hard — physically and mentally, so we can thrive in situations of uncertainty, and that is exactly what CrossFit athletes are all about.”
