I just wanted to thank all of our HQ Trainer Staff for a very instructive, useful, and efficient Level 1 Cert course over the weekend in Chicago. Doug(Tony), Matt, Joe D., Joe W., Rudy, and Abi - you guys were a wealth of knowledge not only on the technical aspects but also the people skills and different coaching cues and approaches to take with different athletes. I was able to learn something about coaching from all of you.This weekend has given me a breath of fresh air and a renewed sense of energy with CrossFit. Thanks again!

Is that Jim Wendler in the army t-shirt in the first photo? Cool if it is!
Crossfit Level 1 Cert (Maverick Crossfit Melbourne FL.). ALL the Coaches/Trainers were AWESOME. I learned so much and each one brought something different to the table. BIG thanks to ALL of you.
Posted a comment that caused a bit of a fuss yesterday, that wasn't the purpose. I do crossfit from time to time to supplement other workouts - best Linda time is 19:20 as rx'ed. My concern was this, when a workout like Fran, and I've seen the Games videos, docks you reps, points and times for improper thruster form, why does the same not hold true for proper pull up form. If you can cheat form on that, why not cheat form on other exercises. Military schools don't count pull ups of improper form, I've never been kicked out of a school for this reason, but I know those that have- for not completing the necessary number of proper pull ups. Again, not hating, crossfit is a great,curious to hear the responses- even the nasty ones.
Level 1 Brisbane - Australia!
Had an awesome time thanks to the Crossfit Team. Doug and the team were excellent, they really know their suff! Also great to see them train themselves at lunch! Highly recommend Level 1 training to anyone who loves Crossfit!
Phenominal time at level 1 cert in Melbourne, FL Maverick Crossfit!!! I recommend this for everyone!!! Help spread the love and extend the Crossfit family :)
BADASS class in melbourne Florida at maverick crossfit! THANK YOU to all the AMAZING instructors!
We were so lucky to have the dream team led by Chuck Carswell this weekend in Melbourne, FL!!! Maverick CrossFit did a killer job as host as well!!! I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of my L1 experience!
Had a Frantackular time this weekend at NorCal CrossFit L1 Cert! Awesome to work with such a high caliber crew!
Great cert class in Chicago at Atlas. Thanks to all the instructors.
Had the best weekend at Maverick crossfit in Melbourne fl. I can't thank all the trainers enough for all they did. Big thanks to Mike for sharing his awesome gym with all of us. Way to go team 5.
A HUGE Thanks to CrossFit Brisbane for opening their box (doors) for such an amazing Level 1 Trainers Course. Thanks to all the Awesome Instructors / Coaches!. Wish I had of complete the sooner, would highly recommend this course to every CrossFitter.
Loved this cert, great people and amazing staff. Thanks for letting the highschooler be part of the group:)
CrossFit Kids @ CF KOP!!!
Awesome cert. Thank you Todd and the rest of the team. Excellent program.
NorCal CrossFit is class act. I met some of the coolest trainers, coaches and staff this weekend. Everyone teaching us had great knowledge of everything. I'm hella glad I did my weekend cert w/ Mike G, Jason Khalipa, Neal Maddox, Boz, Kimmy, Sarah, Hollis and everyone involved this weekend at NorCal CrossFit!
Awesome cert at CrossFit Atlas in Chicago! The trainers were awesome and very knowledgable. TWO THUMBS UP!!
Great L1 at maverick. Trainers were great, gyms amazing and everyone at the cert was easy going and stoked. Great experience. No need to geek out!
NORCAL rocked all weekend. Great people having fun enjoying what they do. It showed with the engagement that the Instructors had with each student on an individual basis... Just hope I did not blow the test.
great course, thanks to all the guys and girls for their time over the weekend, you're all a credit to the crossfit community.
Comment #13 -- It's a matter of understanding the differences in what the pull-ups do. Strict, military pull-ups are for developing upper body, shoulder, back strength. The kipping pull-ups Crossfit employs are used for conditioning, coordination and power output. Both strict and kipping pull-ups accomplish the same amount of work -- taking the body from a hang position to chin over bar. But the kips are far more powerful and require added skill to orchestrate the movement and timing of the hips along with the shoulder girdle.
CrossFit crew! Thank you for sharing your expert knowledge with us today at Atlas in Chicago. What a fine tuned, well oiled machine you guys have with your presentation and flow of each day :). Well done. Hope to "play" with you all again soon.
Just finished the Chicago Level 1. Could not be happier with the team of instructors. Thanks for a great weekend!
Great weekend.... I've done a handful of certifications and NEVER have I left feeling so good about the quality of instruction as I do right now. NorCal crew was amazing. Thank you for making me better. First stab at Fran was painfully awesome and completing my first muscle up left me speechless. (not easy to do) THANK YOU! #crossfitbeliever
IT IS the Fittest Crowd for sure!!!...
Great video, great bods, great butts, great music!..Eye candy for everyone!..
Fred, my assumption is that by "improper form" you are referring to kipping pullups? If yes, then here is my response: kipping pullups are not strict pullups done with improper form, they are simply kipping pullups. Kipping and strict pullups are two different exercises entirely. The only thing they have in common is that they both result in your body going from full arm extension to chin over the bar. Everything in-between is different. It's like comparing a snatch and a clean & jerk. Both result in the bar going from ground to overhead but what happens in the middle is different. It does not make sense to treat kipping and strict pullups and two different ways of doing the same exercise, they are in fact different exercises.
You could create a version of Fran that required strict pullups if you wanted, but you just have to realize this is an entirely different workout than Fran with kipping pullups. It wouldn't make sense to compare results between the two workouts.
As you are aware, in CrossFit if pullups are mentioned in a WOD it is assumed that most people will be doing kipping pullups (if they have acquired that skill). If the workout dictates strict pullups (which is sometimes does) then it is an entirely different WOD. It is important to define terms when describing workouts so just be aware that in CrossFit "pullup" is defined as "kipping pullup" and "strict pullup" is defined as "strict pullup".
The point is that the two exercises are different and one person's ability to do kipping pullups should not be compared to another person's ability to do strict pullups.
Hope that helps.
Thanks to the fantastic HQ training staff (Joe, Joe, Doug, Abi, Matt, and Rudy) for the L1 Cert at CF Atlas in Chicago. The staff was absolutely outstanding and taught me a ton. Looking forward to start applying everything I learned in the AM!
I felt honored and privileged to train under such amazing coaches! Thanks so much for giving us nothing but 110% both days. After doing CF for almost two years its amazing how much more I learned in such a short period of time. I'm almost 3 months pregnant and the coaches made sure I was doing alright throughout both days. I'll strive to give my clients the attention, understanding and superb coaching they demonstrated.
THANKS AGAIN JOE CHRISTMAS SARAH NICOLE ANDY CHRIS
Awesome, Awesome weekend. To the trainers, thank you for your professional and thurough instruction. your example is one i hope to emulate throughout my crossfit journey.
Level 1 cert in Chicago was awesome. Great job by all the instructors, especially the two Joes!!
NORCAL Level 1
To all the coaches, you guys emulate what CrossFit is all about. Not a better group of guys and gals. We had superheroes, OG's, and the infamous Boz(no rep). I felt honored and privileged to be taught by you all.

PS~ Whoever is giving Neil Maddox the bunny ears... Come-on man!!!
Melbourne L1 was awesome. Amazing host and incredible staff training us. My mom passed away this past Tuesday suddenly and was my best friend. I debated whether I could even think about going through with my L1. My coach Dani Dufrene told me I was CrossFit strong and she had faith in me and my family said my mom was always talking about how she was so proud of my CrossFit lifestyle and that she would wan me to do it. If it wasn't for the positive staff and the outstanding experience they delivered, I never would have been able to get through it in one peice. Thanks to each of you! Props to Chuck for his first class leadership. 3-2-1 HELL YEAH!!!
Just got home from the cert at Atlas Crossfit. The staff was amazing and very knowledgeable. It was a great experience! Thank you!
Level 1 Cert in Melbourne kicked ass! Awesome facility, awesome trainers, amazing weekend. Hell yea!!
Chicago Level 1 cert was great. Learned a ton from all the instructors. Thanks for everything!
What is that TUNE that they're playing in the Fittest Crowd???
Check out the Journal of Exercise Physiology Online, Volume 15, Number 3, June 2012 edition.
"Resistance Training to Momentary Muscular Failure
Improves Cardiovascular Fitness in Humans: A Review of Acute Physiological Responses and Chronic Physiological Adaptations"
Basically, the article argues that intense resistance training (training to "momentary muscular failure") improves Cardiovascular fitness. Of course, we Crossfitters have known this all along. It mentions 1 rep maxes as an example of maximum intensity, but I think it would be safe to extend the observations to repetitive momentary muscular failure (just about every time I work out).

A huge thank you to the all the trainers at the NorCal CrossFit level 1 cert this weekend! Not only was there a lot of information and hands on, but the coaches made it fun! Great team, great class and well worth the investment!
Awesome trainers at Maverick CrossFit, learned a lot and excited to just into coaching. Huge thanks for making my Level 1 awesome to Chuck, Lisa, Bobby, Jenn, Eric and Lea. You guys were awesome!

CF Instructors at NorCal CF.....Priceless!!!
Had a really great weekend at Norcal CrossFit with an amazing group of trainers and staff they did a great job.
I have been a personal trainer for five years but never have done a crossfit work out. Just three ramp up classes at Sf crossfit so my first crissfit work out was Fran! Great experience, you really do bond with people when you work out with them to the degree of exertion and intensity. Wasn't expecting to walk away having mad friends
Learned great new coaching techniques! Thank you all so much for this wonderful experience.
O RIO DE JANEIRO TAMBÉM ESTÁ AQUI!!!
Excelente curso! Professores divertidos, pacientes e muito técnicos.
Recomendo a todos os amantes do CrossFit no Brasil. Todo o Brasil foi bem representado. São Paulo, Brasília e Rio Estão juntos no CrossFit.
Se o level 1 foi assim... Não vejo a hora de fazer os outros.
Thanks for everybody!! Congrats Latinoamerica!! And congrats CROSSFIT TULUKA!! Awesome!!
Thanks for the constructive responses, much more respectful than others I've read from previous posts. It seems as if most crossfitters are very adamant about kipping pull ups. With my present work environment I can't bring myself to do them, I will continue with the strict version, but in the future, who knows. And I continue to do crossfit Thanks again!
How many sports do you know that 98% of the crowd do the sport they are watching

Had an awesome time at the Level 1 Crossfit Course in Brisbane on the weekend. Trainers were excellent and I have been able to learn and gain so much from them all from only the 2 days. Cheers.
A big shout out to all the coaches at the Melbourne cert!!!! Chuck, Eric, Lisa, Bobbi, Jenn and Leah....You all were awesome!!
Had a great time at CrossFit Twente with Karl, Nolan, Denise, Fede, Drake, Steve, and Nathalie.
Thanks you guys for sharing all your knowledge with us and making us better athletes!
Awesome weekend at the KOP Kid's Cert!!!
Last few wods have really taken a toll on my shoulders what can I do to speed up recovery time after workouts?
Loved the "Fittest Crowd on Earth" video. I'd been trying to get some girl friends to consider Crossfit to no avail. I shared how strong and empowered I felt and how amazing it is to feel and be fit. "It's too hard and I don't want too many muscles" is all I heard. Alas, one gander at all the hot bodies in this video and now they're interested. I guess looking better naked is more of a motivator than I thought.
I have a question for anyone who has perhaps experienced the same problem as me. When doing any of the barbell exercises recently, it feels like something in my shoulder(s) is getting pinched and it is very painful. I'm finding myself having I workout with less weight than I'm capable of in order to compensate. Any advice? Are there certain warmup I can do, or any way to modify form to put less stress on the rotor cuff?
What a great experience at the level 1 cert course in Melbourne this weekend! A great group of trainers and attendees made for an amazing time. Props to Mike C for the setup at Maverick
Had a great time at Atlas CrossFit for the L1 Cert this past weekend! Awesome training staff, awesome location, couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Had an amazing time at crossfit wilmington!!! Thanks again to all the coaches!! In 2 days I have learned more about crossfit than I have in a years worth of training. Absolutely amazing staff. I recommend them to anyone interested in the sport.
Had a really great time at Reebok One for the Coaches Prep coarse. Trainers were great with a good balance of everything. Had a great experience and some great constructive criticism.
Thanks as always for the knowledge.
Learned so much at the Melbourne FL Level 1 Cert thanks to some incredible trainers/ crossfit ambassadors. Chuck, Eric, Jenn, Lisa, Leah and Bobbie you all were awesomeI Big shout out to Mike for hosting this event. Mike asked me how Maverick could have done a better job hosting and I couldn't think of ANYTHING! This group of trainers not only made me a better trainer but also increased my dedication to the sport by being such great people! If HQ would take requests I'd ask for this group every time. HELL YEAH!
Morristown NJ: Had a great time this weekend. I couldn't have asked for a better group of instructors. They were extremely knowledgable in lectures and excellent coaches during the hands on portion. Thanks to Russel Bergen, Austin Malleolo, Spencer Hendel, James Hobart and Mel Ockerby.

Thank you very much for humbling me and shining the light on the areas I needed to address. I am a better Crossfiter because of this L1 and I’m looking forward to helping others with some of the tools that I picked up at this event. THANK YOU!
This morning I made up yesterday's workout. OK, I only made up part of it. Still great workout. I liked the burpee muscle-ups.
Results posted there.
I had such a great weekend with the CF HQ Team that came to see us in Chicago! I learned so much, and I can't wait to put it all into action and share with anyone and everyone! Thank you!
Huge thanks to CrossFit KOP for hosting the CrossFit Kids Cert this past weekend. The instruction and information was fantastic!

Amazing and great times with the training staff during the cert at Crossfit Maverick in Melbourne. Shout out to Mike and his awesome facility at Maverick. I wish the course was a week long! The instructors were refreshing and fun. Safe travels and see you all soon.
Joe, Joe, Rudy, Abby, Micheal, and Doug were awesome instructors! They were exceptionally helpful and informative. They were also very encouraging and "real." They didn't sugar coat anything, yet positive in their critiques. Thanks also to Atlas for being great host, and I look forward to continueing learning from this great organization!
Thank you to Russel, Spencer, Austin, Mel, and James for the level 1 class this past weekend at Crossfit Morristown. You are consummate professionals, excellent teachers, and great athletes. You exceeded my expectations for the weekend. Keep up the good work.
Awesome video, and suddenly a norwegian tune; I thought something was up with my computer! Who is the artist though? I can not figure it out - aargh..
Amazing cert in Wilmington this weekend! After training on and off for the past three years, it was definitely the motivation I needed to take my training to the next level. The instruction was phenomenal. So much information packed into two days. No amount of articles or videos can replace the hands-on instruction from the staff.
This was an amazing weekend! I gained so much knowledge some from phenomenal coaches and I can't thank them enough! I absolutely loved it and I am eager to start coaching!
What a great L1 class we had in Melbourne, Fl this past weekend. We couldn't have asked for better trainers or topped the amazing Maverick facility. Shout out to our course leader Chuck and fellow trainers Eric, Jenn, Lisa, Leah and Bobbi. Special thanks to Mike for hosting us.

Doug Armstrong and the Brissy Crew thanks for the most in depth course I have attended. Everyone had great ideas and massive knowledge and presented with great professionalism.
I would recommended anyone doing this course over any Cert III or Vert IV Fitness course.
Crossfit L1 Chicago was fantastic! The coaches were great, and quite entertaining I might add.
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... you know what I'm talking about!
Thanks for the staff in Chicago. Learned alot!
Crossfit L1 in Wilmington, NC was a blast! Coaches were great and I learned a ton. Thanks to Andy, Christmas, Joe, Sara, Nicole, and Chris for the great experience!
Jason, you should send me a shirt and hat from the awesome quote Im about to bestow upon completion of the course!
"My quest to succeed in my goals has come to an unforgiving future unless my desire to push forward exceeds my fear of failing." -Dusty Raul.
After taking the level one Course at NorCal CrossFit, I noticed that taking risks and performing new tasks is the key to becoming the best athlete you can be. Teaching these skills to CrossFit to beginners is key and on day one I will start with the definition of Virtuosity!
The team at CrossFit NorCal this weekend has changed my life, and I had the most fun ever in the 48 hours I was in San Jose! Thank you
Chicago. I am so excited to learn all of this stuff. The most informative and fun certificate lectures I've ever been to. I didn't have a voice the entire weekend and they accommodated me. Our teachers were fun and relaxed. Joe DeGain spoke in a way that was realistic yet knowledgable. I hate when teachers speak too 'smartly' and leave behind their students...these people were funny and amazing!
First of all a big thanks to all the coaches/instructors. As a chiropractor and a CrossFitter I couldn't wait to take this course and pass along this info to my patients. I have long known that working the body in full ROM was important, but now I feel even more convinced that this message needs to be shared. Bottom line we all need to keep moving to remain healthy! The level of instruction was top notch. Thank you again!
-Morgan Hill CrossFit
CFL-1 in Chicago, IL was great. Glad I came, thanks for the help gentleman and lady.
Had an awesome time at the Crossfit Certification at Atlas Crossfit in Chicago! Joe Degain did a great job leading the group through the weekend. Also, other Joe, Rudy, Doug, Michael, and Abi did a fantastic job demoing, presenting and teaching as well. I learned a lot and am glad I went. Couldn't have asked for a better set of coaches.
Thank you all and let's keep up what we do to "make ourselves look better naked."
HSPU every minute
Push ups every minute
Fantastic Level 1 Trainer cse at Brisbane, Australia on 21-22 Jul 12. Thanks so much to all Instructors, Doug, Dave, Katie, Connor, Lilly, Danny. Inspiring. Learned heaps - made me realise how little I knew and much more I want to learn and apply.
Looking forward to Nutrition Seminar coming out.
The Level 1 course and NORCAL Crossfit was amazing! Thank you to the NORCAL crew for the encouragement, instruction, motivation, and fun. The knowledge you shared was inspiring. I loved every part, even FRAN. I gave my first squat instruction at 6am this morning. Thank you again coaches.
Great Level 1 Course in Melbourne, FL. Amazing time and even better instructors.
What a great time at CrossFit Maverick in Melbourne, FL. I learned an incredible amount in our level 1 class. Amazing people and even better instructors.
If you notice, the group from CrossFit Atlas in Chicago are way sweatier than the guys in the other photos. Another measure of intensity, no doubt. Great job, all!
Only one way to do it ... LEARN FROM THE BEST. (lvl 1 Atlas CrossFit in Chicago). Abi, The Joe’s, Doug, Rudy and Matt meshed very well teaching together! Their teaching and Training styles were top notch. I have been to many of certifications that throw a lot of text book info at you… and you leave not retaining much due to the strict classroom teaching technique. Best advice was “live in the moment” I left with so much applicable knowledge. Thanks guys. Best of luck in your future.
Awesome time at the Brisbane training course, big shout out to Doug, Rob and Dave who helped me so much with my own technique!!
What in the heck is ESPN 3?
I have Directv and have ESPN, ESPN 2 and ESPNU.
Why wasn't the Crossfit Games shown on any of these stations?
I've been anxiously awaiting the games to be televised and than have to go to something we're not familiar with or don't have?
Some clarification please.
NorCal Crossfit was amazing. Like gym class all over again. Thank you to all the great coaches.

Had an awesome weekend and learned an incredible amount in 2 days at NorCal CF. I kind of wanted to move into the gym. Thanks to a great crew of coaches and teachers--you guys rule!
I'm a 41 yo female, I did the RX'd wehigt (75 lbs) and got 4 full rounds plus 7 pull ups and 4 push press. Total of 67 reps. I think I could have gotten more but had some equipment issues and sharing of the pull up bar. I loved this wod even though I wasn't looking forward to the row- it didn't turn out too bad. Thanks for programming these wod's for us old folks!
