A big congrats to James M. who starts at the Fire Academy next week, one of the final stages in his goal of becoming a firefighter. James has been working hard at the gym over the last few years to improve his general physical preparedness, and I think we can all safely say that he's going to make a pretty damn fit, strong, and mentally tough firefighter. If CrossFit is supposed to help prepare someone for the unknown and unknowable, this is one of the coolest applications of that claim.
As a gym with numerous firefighters and first responders, we sincerely appreciate James' (and all of those in this group) dedication to helping our communities in the times of most urgent need.
Congratulations, James! We'll miss you while you're off doing your thing!
