Get Chris CrossFit Level 1 Certified
When 2014 began, all I knew about CrossFit was that there was a competition on ESPN every summer and that it looked like some crazy intense workouts... but also looked fun. I did the benchmark workout Fran in early February and it truly changed my life. One result of Fran was the creation of my blog, ifailedfran.com.
WHAT IS IT?
The Level 1 Certificate Course introduces the methodology, terminology, and movements foundational to CrossFit. The course is comprised of lectures, movement “break out” sessions for hands-on practice, and workouts. These elements enable participants to better apply the program for personal use and to begin training others with CrossFit. The L1 course costs $1000.
L1 courses fill up quickly. My plan is to raise the money (a downpayment is required) and aim to take the course in late 2014.
WHY GET MY L1?
Three main reasons.
1) Myself - Having this certification would be formal bolstering to my own self-learned fitness education. The CF L1 would give me more fundamental understanding to improve my personal training and growth, helping me reach levels that would otherwise be unobtainable. Knowledge is power.
2) Others - My blog gives me a platform to share my voice with the world. It fuels me when other people say they can relate to my experiences, my trials and tribulations with my CrossFit journey. That's why I write, to share and connect. The L1 will allow me to provide YOU with better information, hopefully helping you on your journey.
3) Advocacy - I worked in the nuclear power industry for over 6 years and dealt with constant misinformation and general public fear from fanatical lies served as "truth". CrossFit experiences the same stigmatism. I became a part of the CrossFit advocacy when my post in response to CrossFit hate went viral. I feel it is my duty to promote the truth, both positives and negatives, about CrossFit. The L1 Certification would add a more authoritative air to my words.
