Crossfit L1 course this weekend at Trident Crossfit in Alexandria, VA was fantastic. The coaches, the trainees, all of it, even just watching the pros workout at lunch. My thoughts. You better study the training manual and you better pay attention during lectures! We are lucky to be part of such an awesome community. Thank you everyone. Looks like the goofy picture made it! lol.

A fantastic CPC with Boz, LindseyS, and JoeW at Atlas. Picked some great cues and the deeper insight into programming was really helpful. I definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in getting candid coaching feedback to take it to the next level.

Thanks to the CFK Seminar staff and to 810 CrossFit for hosting us over the weekend. I hope anyone who influences children in any way considers attending the CFK certification. The information you will walk away with will blow your mind. Looking forward to learning more in the future - thanks for another humbling weekend!

Had an amazing time at Crossfit Max Effort Level 1 Course. I can't say enough about the course, the trainers and the facility. After doing Crossfit for 2 years, my eyes were opened to the scope of Crossfit. Thank you to Eric from Crossfit Park City and his crew for dedicating a part of their life to making me a better person. Also, a great big thanks to Crossfit Max Effort's owners and staff,, what an incredible facility.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Erick Soto at September 15, 2013 5:58 PM

Learned so much. Feeling inspired to target some weaknesses of my own and begin to train others! Let the process of learning through teaching begin!
Thanks coaches!

Comment #14 - Posted by: J Graham at September 15, 2013 6:03 PM

Kurtis, Rory, Tommy, Kevin, Dan, and Austin all SERIOUSLY impressed me. I hesitant for this course in regards to instructor quality. All these guys and gals know exactly what they're talking about and are completely capable of teaching anyone these movements and methodologies at any level. The movements were broken down very well and the training guide is great supplementation for the lectures and movement breakouts. Special shout out to Kurtis for being calm, collected, and precise in all of his lectures. And for having an excellent response to literally every question asked. Kudos to HQ for picking the L1 training staff so well. Oh, and how could you not love Rory?

Comment #15 - Posted by: Sean M. at September 15, 2013 6:17 PM

Fim de semana de muito aprendizado e conhecimento junto dos Coachs Mike, Lance, Carlos, Adriana e a aniversariante do dia Liza. Obrigado aos colegas de curso e aos coachs que nos passaram todo o seu ensinamento para que possamos aumentar e apaixonar cada vez mais pessoas a comunidade do Crossfit

Depois de hoje tenho a certeza de que o Crossfit é muito mais do que um movimento funcional de alta intensidade constantemente variado! Crossfit vc nao tem como explicar e sim sentir na pele!

Mais uma vez parabéns a Coach Liza pelo aniversario!

Um abraço Crossfit Team

how about going into detail on these subjects. you are not tied to a time limit. don't be typical commercial break headline no depth news. you can not possibly do a subject such as this justice in 15 minutes.

Comment #18 - Posted by: derek at September 15, 2013 6:36 PM

Had an amazing time at Trident Crossfit. Flowmaster Chuck was awesome and extremely knowledgable as was all the trainers.

CrossFit MONROVIA level I course this weekend was awesome! The coaches were unbelievably smart and really had a passion for what they were doing. They really knew how to coach. Never seen a group of coaches or trainers that could match up with this group! Cameron: great job in breaking things down in a funny way so everyone could understand.. hilarious. Dave, your like a walking encyclopedia.. you gave off a great vibe and you really know how to control an audience. Stephan, good job in making everything flow together, I was really surprised how well everything turned out. And the rest of the coaches, way to be motivating, everyone of you guys talked to almost everyone of us and taught us something new..

Thanks again,

Josh G

Comment #53 - Posted by: Andrew C at September 16, 2013 5:36 AM

Anyone else offended when the host of that video made the "don't ask don't tell" joke to the guy on the right? You're trying to have a (somewhat) serious debate about an important issue and you make a weak gay joke on this panel? Stopped watching after that. Here's to hoping I heard that wrong...but if I didn't, that's pathetic.

Comment #54 - Posted by: Jeff at September 16, 2013 5:40 AM

Thanks to Cheri, Ryan, Megan, and John for making the Level 1 Trainer Course at Guerrilla Fitness one of the most rewarding and educational experiences of my fitness career. I could take the course a half dozen more times and still learn something new. If you're on the fence about taking it, spend the money and do it. You'll thank yourself afterwards.

Great L1 seminar in Morristown. The depth of knowledge for the staff (Cherie, Meaghan, Ryan and John) was evident and the information was awesome!

Comment #64 - Posted by: Josh V. at September 16, 2013 8:08 AM

First of all I would like to give a big thank you to CrossFit Country in Oviedo, FL for opening up its amazing facility which allowed for my wonderful experience at the Level 1 CrossFit Trainers course this past weekend.

First thing I would like to comment on is the CF Staff Trainers/coaches/teachers. Specifically I worked 1 on 1 with Donny, Todd, & Sarah in our breakout sessions. From the second Donny started my first breakout session I could tell that he had been very well trained and had taken the time and effort to improve himself so that he was able to share his knowledge of coaching and CrossFit with others. The same thing can be said for both Todd and Sarah. All three coaches covered the basics and principles of their respective movements, but brought their own unique style and tips for coaching and correcting each movement.

The other coaches, Russell, Julie, and (sorry can’t remember your name because I didn’t work with you very much, tall guy, black CF shirt, very very helpful, I believe you were an intern!) were excellent as well. I was able to work with each one for a short period during some of the supplemental movements. Even in the very short time I worked with them they were very impressive and it was obvious they were at the same level as the coaches I worked 1 on 1 with.

Our Flow Master, Mike G. lead the team and set the tone for the entire weekend. Mike was able to take a situation where the majority of people attending were a bit nervous, and he broke the ice and really made everyone comfortable.

I could see that every single one of the coaches teaching this seminar were very professional. Time was taken to understand and answer everyone’s questions to the point that everyone understood what was going on. These coaches have invested a ton of hard work and time into developing their skills and turning them into an art form and it showed.

I found the level of approachability the coaches had to be very comforting. I had really good conversations with Todd and Sarah and to me it was comforting that each one of them could relate to me and had even been in the same position I am in now. Both had very good advice and answers to questions I had, they also confirmed that I am on the correct path to achieving my goal. Todd and Sarah, I thank you for that and enjoyed our conversations before the lectures began!

As far as the course goes, I think it was great. The flow and structure of the course worked very well, threshold training!!! The course was efficient in getting the enormous amount of information covered in a two day period. The information was not just covered; it was covered well and at a very high and effective level. The course confirmed that what I had been taught when I first started CrossFit and what I was doing currently was in the correct ball park, but this course magnified what was going on and helped me realize where I was lacking as an athlete and a coach and taught me how to see and coach others around me.

I believe that every single person that attended this seminar with me was outstanding and gave 100% and I would be happy to be coached by any one of them. Thank you to everyone who attended with me for making this a wonderful experience.

I will say that three weeks before attending this course I tore my ACL and Meniscus during the American Mud Race; I was very worried that I would not be able to attend or participate 100% in the course (which was required). Day 1 my worries were gone. I made my injury known to Donny in the first Breakout session and from there on out I had coaches checking in with me during each exercises, workouts and breakout sessions. Several coaches reminded me to not overdo it, and that the course was not to try and be macho, but rather to learn so if movements had to be scaled they were. I found that I was able to perform all of the movements and exercises except for one that had to be scaled. The trainers and classmates did such a great job of keeping the intensity up during the workout that even at a scaled variation of the workout my butt was kicked. I don’t know if every CrossFit L1 staff was as good as the one we had this weekend, but given what I have seen I feel confident they are.

What a tremendous experience and when you see how it is run from the inside out the respect for CrossFit HQ and its staff grows even bigger!

Thank you again for everything,

Blown away by how well each of these coaches taught the basics this weekend. Even more impressed and grateful to have learned from such a genuine group of people. Coaches, cannot thank you enough for your knowledge, support and constant presence in everything you taught us this weekend. (My push-jerk, deadlift & snatch are forever changed for the better!!) Came home yesterday feeling so inspired and excited for my future with CrossFit, as both an athlete and coach :)

My Form needs work. It shows at the 125# for the split jerk and 135# for the clean squat.

I loved every minute! Great to be a learner and taught by such accomplished coaches and successful people doing human well. Your care and knowledge made the weekend worthwhile and fun. It was an honor to be from Trident as we hosted the event an amazing atmosphere to be in.

HQ gets it right - the staff at the NorCal seminar was nicely chosen. In particular, I have to call out Matt Chan. Isn't it nice when one of your best athletes is a tremendous ambassador? There couldn't have been a more engaging, funny and informative host. A worthy face of your organization.

Excelente Seminário Level 1 em Goiania-Brasil. Todo o Staff está de parabéns, especialmente Carlos (Muito bom palestrante). Espero em um futuro próximo também fazer parte dessa equipe seleta. Parabéns ao Ricardinho(Punk CrossFit) por se tornar o primeiro brasileiro a fazer parte do Staff internacional. Você é uma inspiração para todos nós.

I attended the Toronto Colosseum Level 1 Seminar and I just wanted say thanks. The trainers were all pros. I'd like to use an analogy to sum up my thought - I've traveled and visited a lot of places. I've seen/climbed the rockies, the alps, Cordillera Occidental, the volcanos of Africa, but it's not on till you walk among the mountains of the Himalaya's that you can truly feel that you now have seen the best!
