In Okinawa for the weekend attending a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Course.
“The Level 1 Trainer Course is an introductory course on CrossFit’s methodology, concepts, and movements.
The course includes classroom instruction on: CrossFit’s conceptual framework, CrossFit’s foundational movements, programming to optimize training results, and nutrition strategies to support fitness.
Hands on small group training sessions include instruction on CrossFit’s foundational movements under low intensity with a focus on improving technique. Students will have their movement observed and corrected, and engage in dialogue concerning effective correction techniques.
Large, group CrossFit workouts are conducted as an example of bringing it all together; establishing an example of how to conduct a class and how to hold a standard of proper technique under high intensity and scaling for any ability level.
The purpose of the course is to provide students with an introductory level education on the fundamental principles and movements that make up the CrossFit Program.
The L1 course is structured to meet a two-fold goal:
Provide attendees the understanding to better use CrossFit methods for themselves; and
Provide attendees an initial and foundational education to begin training others using CrossFit.
On completing a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer Course, attendees will have the resources and sufficient foundation from which to continue development as a CrossFit trainer and/or athlete.
This course has a 50 question multiple-choice test, which will be required to pass in order to attain the distinction of CrossFit Level 1 Trainer (CF-L1). All of the questions on the test come directly from the course and the UPDATED CrossFit Training Guide.
For further Information on the Level 1 Course and Test please see the CrossFit Level 1 Participant Handbook and the Level 1 Test FAQ.“
UPDATE: Passed the test 41/45. Which is nice. Just call me CF-L1 from now on.
