THURS 11.7.13 My L1 experience

My L1 Experience

by Tirzah
Last month I joined a group of 64 CrossFitters who shared the same goal as me: to learn a lot, meet some new folks and pass that durn test.
To neatly sum up my CrossFit Level 1 Seminar experience, it was a weekend filled with anticipation, excitement…and a lot of squats.
I felt like it was my first day of school.
I pulled into CrossFit Atlanta’s parking lot and noticed everyone was doing the same thing...waiting in their cars looking at others waiting in their cars.
Finally someone that looked official walked toward the entrance and we all stopped sizing each other up and walked in. The box was set up like a classroom with all the chairs facing the whiteboard. As we sat down, in what apparently became our assigned seating since no one budged from their original spot, folks finally began introducing themselves, shaking hands and making corny jokes.
The next two days were filled with lectures, demonstrations, WODs* and a lot of jokes.
If you ever decide to pursue your L1* and have the pleasure of getting Mike G as an instructor you’ll find out what I mean. I really enjoyed the entire weekend.
I also want to give credit to CFM’s Instructor Training Program for helping me prepare for and complete the certification, giving me the opportunity to now call myself…
Tirzah White, CrossFit Level 1 Trainer !!!

USAPL Georgia & Southern States meet is Saturday

If you've been in my class anytime in the past month, you probably know I'm competing in my 4th powerlifting* meet this weekend (will she EVER stop talking about it?!?).
While I've already set five state records (2 in squat, 1 in deadlift, 2 in total) in two different weight classes, this is my first shot at a state title. I hope to win the individual title and score points toward earning my team (Team Rohr) the state title as well.
The meet is in the gym at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross (the last time I was in a high school gym, I think I was a basketball cheerleader circa 1997).
I lift in the afternoon session, beginning at 2:30 and wrapping up around 7. To be more precise, my first squat probably won't happen until closer to 3, since I'm in the 2nd flight of the session, and probably on the tail end of it.
Admission is $10 (donated to MHS athletics). I hope a few of you can make it!
There's an after-party at Dave & Buster's for anyone who cares to hang around and celebrate with me. See you Saturday!
I'll also be posting updates via Twitter & Facebook, so friend request or follow me @lissaunders if you want details.

*"What's powerlifting," you ask? It's one of the many sports combined to make up what we know as CrossFit. In a powerlifting meet, each athlete gets three attempts at a max back squat, then three attempts for a max bench press, and finally three attempts at a max deadlift.
As an aside, while I appreciate the inquiries, NO, I won't be lifting in the Olympics anytime soon. THAT sport (also a big part of CrossFit) is called Olympic Lifting, and those lifts are the snatch and clean & jerk.


Here's my last heavy squat before the meet - a single rep at 265#
