USAF Recruits at CrossFit TNT

2010 CrossFit Games Finals

CrossFit TNT and the United States Air Force

Scott AFB incorporates CrossFit into it's recruiting program

On February 12th, 2010 The Crossfit Games season kicked off in St. Charles, Missouri with the Midwest Sectional. The Midwest athletes were thrown through a gauntlet of events over the course of the weekend. The most brutal challenge of the weekend was named for key sponsor of the event: The United States Air Force. 

In the better part of the year since that initial competition event host,  CrossFit TNT, has maintained a close relationship with one of the squadrons at nearby Scott Air Force Base. Rochelle Simmer is the owner of CrossFit TNT. She checked in with this update on the relationship they are fostering with the Air Force that was built on Games competition.

Since hosting Sectionals, the Air Force and TNT have gotten together. They were our biggest sponsor and we now have a contract with the 345th RCS (recruiting squadron).

TNT goes to SAFB (Scott Air Force Base) twice a month to coach CF to the Colonel, Chief and all the Sergeants in that squadron. We also allow all the recruiters and their trainees to come to TNT and take our foundations classes and then group classes until they leave for boot camp.

This will teach them all the functional movements that they will need to get ready for combat. We love working with the military, knowing that we can help them prepare for the future.

I am honored to have accepted two awards from the Air Force. The first award is for TNT, the certificate of appreciation for working with the Air Force. The second is for me as an honorary recruiter for the Air Force.

I have never been in the military, but I sure do respect them for all they have done for us. TNT plans on having a very long a rewarding relationship with them.

How would one get TNT to work with other squadrons/people on Scott? Especially people training for special operations?
