Tuesday: Level 1 Training!

Tuesday: Level 1 Training!

Let’s talk about what it means to be in a Level 1 class. We coaches have conveined. We all feel like there are a number of students that must move on. These reasons are founded in everyone’s interest. For one there is no point in us teaching you something that you already know. Secondly If you are a level 1 student who is ready to move on you are holding your fellow crossfitters back by example. You are indirectly letting them know that by continuing to take Level 1 classes that it is ok to never progress from that level.

 

Here’a what a few coaches had to say on the subject:

Before beginning crossfit each crossfitter should understand that crossfit is a journey. We learn skills fine tune technique and achieve to build our physical abilities.

Level 1 is specifically structured for new members to begin their journey into crossfit. The classes are structured to be slower paced to focus on teaching beginners the foundational 9 fundamental movements. It’s a great place to start but as we progress through our journey adapting to new stimulus and movements is necessary.

It’s important to have clear definitions between a beginner’s class and one intended for intermediate students. If we were talking about math you wouldn’t allow a sophomore in high school to go to 2nd grade classes because the material would be too basic.

We want to make sure that everyone in a Level 1 class is receiving the primary and most fundamental explanations and demonstrations for the fundamental CrossFit movements. If those explanations and cues no longer help you to improve it is probably time to move on to All Levels.

Bear in mind if a coach approaches you and informs you that you’re ready to move on to an all levels class this is a great honor. It means that you’ve worked hard and earned the right to progress in your fitness :).
