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 !!!
