That is the point of this discussion they had no legitimate points to make. But again I think its just the Army trying to not get sued by Crossfit and not wanting to pay them for this program so they altered it.
We went to the MEF gym today for a tour. The gym is SICK as hell. It has weight Logs, 50 different weighted tires, shitloads of free weights, shitloads of bumper plates, chains, farmer's walk bars, ropes, heavy ass medicine balls, weight sleds, at least 20 squat racks, about 10 benches, 4 reverse hyper machines, some weird as rollers and harnesses for truck pulls which they said they are working on getting a truck donated soon.
I convinced my squad leader to make peace with the trainers and we decided that we will do MEF in the mornings and the trainers agreed to allow us free reign in the afternoon in the MEF gym. The gym was practically empty and is just too good to pass up in my book. The Army needs to build more of these types of gyms in my opinion.
But your right it is modified Crossfit they are just attacking Crossfit to seperate themselves from it due to legal issues I think.
