New Kids on the Block: Marines + MLK Sessions

The 8:30 am session on Monday will be moved to 10:00 am so you lazy high school kids can sleep in a bit. Other sessions will go on as scheduled.


While I was meeting up with a prespective athlete and her kids last week, I heard the door open and saw two fully uniformed Marine officers walk in. Not really sure what to expect, I greeted them, and they told me they were in charge of a group of young Marines in training based out of Madison Heights, and they needed a place to work out once a week. So we settled on Thursdays at 3:30 pm. Yesterday was their first day.

Izzy, Erica, and the rest of the 4:30 crew were shocked when they walked in to see this crowd before their workout, but it was definitely cool to watch. I think we have our routine figured out with them, so I think this is going to be a thing for the next few months at least. Also, we might see a few of them trickle into our group classes if they can't make their set time on Thursdays. So be on the lookout for that as well. The two guys in charge - Sgt. Keller and Sgt. Woodside are really cool dudes so hopefuly you'll get a chance to meet them and the rest of the crew at least once while they are calling the Champions Club their home.

This is awesome. I love CrossFit being deployed to the military. Seems like a great opportunity, for both the marines and for CC.

Dude, this is so cool! What are the chances of that happening?? I agree with Mel; seems like a great opportunity for both sides!
