CAMP DENALI, Alaska— Volunteers from the Alaska National Guard are providing no cost strength and conditioning program to Guardsmen and their families. Classes The 907 CrossFit program builds strength and conditioning through constantly varied, high intensity functional movements.

This enables individuals to track their progress and compete with one another. "You find yourself racing against other people," said said Pfc. Dylan Hotrum, Recruiting and Retention, Alaska Army National Guard. "It's competitive and I push myself through this insane workout.

Joseph Lawendowski, Sgt. Jessica Campbell. Produced by Lt. Bernie Kale. Also available in high definition.
