“Fighting For Greatness…”

One Of My Old Marine Corps Brothers Owns A CrossFit/Strength & Conditioning Gym Out In Oklahoma…

He Posted This Video On FaceBook The Other Day…

I’ve Posted This Video Before On RCCF’s Blog…

I’ve Always Loved This Video…

My Brother Out In Oklahoma… Like Most Of Us JarHeads… Seen/Did Some Things That We Will Never Share With Anybody… Some Take It Better Than Others…

PTSD Is A Bitch…

Me… Believe It Or Not… I Used To Be The Life Of The Party In High School…

Now… I’m Just Quiet…

I Can Write Like A MotherF–KA… But Holding A Conversation??? Not So Much…

I Say What Needs To Be Said When It Needs To Be Said…

Perfect Example… I Had A Very Deep Conversation With 2 Of Our Lady Athletes This Past Week Because I Knew The Shit That They Were Dealing With Has Hurting Them Or Could End Up Hurting Someone Else… Not Going To Name Names… You Know Who You Are…

Anyway… My Marine Brother Now Owns A Very Successful CrossFit/Strength & Conditioning Gym…

But When He Came Back… He Was F–Ked Up In The Head… He Wasn’t Himself… And Worse… He Was Coming Home To A Wife & A Baby Girl…

We Were Always Being Moved To Different Bases While OverSeas… But When Him & I Got To The Same Base… He Was My Work Out Buddy!!! Him & I Shared The Same Passion For Physical Fitness…

I Wanted To Be A Personal Trainer… He Wanted To Be A Personal Trainer…

But Things Happen…

And By The Time We Got Home… He Was Gone…

He Wasn’t The Same…

I Got Out 2 Months Before Him But Always Kept In Touch… But He Was Bad…

He Ended Up Being Released From The Marine Corps With An Honorable Discharge Under Medical Conditions…

After That… Never Heard From Him Again… Until September 3, 2011…

Somehow He Found Me On FaceBook… And He Found Out That I Had My Own Gym… And Started Checking Out RCCF’s Blog…

It Happened To Be The “31 Heroes WOD…”

Something Inside Him Clicked…

I Talked To Him… Told Me That He Had Went Into A Depression… His Wife Left Him… Barely Sees His Lil’ Girl…

But He Saw RCCF’s Blog Watched Videos Of Me AND YOU LADIES & GENTS!!!

And Got Back Into It…

I Say This All The Time… And It’s Not Just To Sound Sweet & Melt Your Hearts…

RC CrossFit Is A Family…

And He Was Missing A Family…

RCCF Gave Him The Motivation To Get Back Into What He Loved… Physical Fitness… He Got So Motivated, That Over Time… He Decided To Open Up His Own Gym… He Stayed So Motivated, That Now, He Has Found His Own Family…

Things Are Still Sketchy With His Ex-Wife… But Him & His Lil’ Girl Are Ok!!!

If You Don’t Wanna Watch The Entire Video… Just Fast Forward To The 5:50 Min Mark…

CrossFit Saved My Marine Brother’s Life When Everything Could Have Went South…

I’m Proud Of You “Leprechaun…” You Bald/Hairy/Short Ass Piece Of S–T!!! OOH-RAH!!!

ALRIGHT… HERE WE GO!!!

Active Rest Day… Get Out & Do Something & Appreciate Life!!!

3…2…1…GO!!!
