Training for Life

Training for Life

As you know Monday’s workout consisted of sprint intervals. To much of our surprise Santiago showed up in his military gear ready to workout. Dressed in camo pants, sweats, and boots he was ready to train. Many of you might not know this but Santiago is an officer in the Marines. We’ve had the pleasure of working with him while he awaits orders to his first duty station. He’d never tell you because he is too humble. I can’t help myself though I’m too proud of him to keep quiet.

I say all this because he gets it. He understands the purpose of CrossFit. He doesn’t train with us because he wants bigger biceps (though he does love doing chin-ups), he trains with us because one day his life will literally depend on his fitness capability. He trains to be sure he can handle whatever obstacle he might face. I was proud of him Monday morning while he sprinted in his boots. Impressively his times were just as fast as most people’s average sprint times.

It makes me proud to know he is the one going to protect us against our enemies. Our freedom depends on people like him. It’s very assuring to know he is one of the many soldiers who fight for our freedom. To you Santiago, we salute you!
