Jade and the CVCF Community-
Now that I have found a spare moment during my transition to Ft Rucker, Alabama, I just wanted to thank you all for the excellent training and camaraderie that I have experienced in the last six months. Coming to CVCF has completely changed not only the way that I train, but the way that I incorporate training into my life. Working out, or PT as the Army calls it, used to be more of a mandatory ordeal for me, something that I had to attend in ROTC and walk through the steps just so I could leave, go home, and start the rest of my day. Not to say that it wasn’t difficult at times or worth while, I just didn’t see it as a part of my ritual. After about a week at CVCF, I began to feel like my day wasn’t complete if I had not mentally and physically pushed myself through a WOD. My time at CVCF pushed me to do complex movements that I was hesitant to try in the past, and having other like-minded individuals around me provided the confidence to go for it. I have only one regret, and that was not joining earlier. I wasn’t sure what to make of CVCF before I joined, and my experience far surpassed any expectations I had. I am attending Army Flight School now, and it will be some years before I return. CVCF has prepared me well to succeed mentally and physically in the career I am taking on, and I thank you all for being a part of that. I plan to visit sometime this Spring, hopefully after the next edition of 100 burpee box jumps.
