Crossfit and the Fire Service
To start off, I know there is a few posts about crossfit on these message boards. I am a crossfitter myself, I belong to a local box gym in my home town. I am only 5'10 and 180 I feel a lot stronger but I lack stamina I feel. I love this program for many reasons that I will not get into here. I was wondering for you people that do crossfit, do you belong to a Box Gym, or do you just go off the main site or another crossfit site on the net? I got out of crossfit for about an year to go through Paramedic school. Soon after that I went and did my first CPAT test and I failed, I ran out of time on the final station. Do you feel that crossfit prepares someone for the CPAT? The box I belong to was started by 5 or so local paid firefighters and they live by Crossfit and have even incorporated it into the PT phase of the Fire Departments Recruit Classes.
