I had a great weekend and learned a lot. Thank you to all the coaches and athletes who made the experience what it was at Crossfit Country.
Great Experience. Crossfit is the best experience I've had since quitting football. My health is way much better. Today I finished CF L1 Seminar in Panama City, Panama. Thanks to Adrian, Jesse, Ricardo, Adriana and the Staff of Crossfit PTY.
Great class and good times in the ATX! Thanks Coaches.
The CFK Cert at Crossfit St. Louis was the bomb!! The John/Jon's and Meaghan were awesome and kicked some knowledge that I'm going to use at school with my students and at the box!
LOVED! LOVED! LOVED the wealth of knowledge I gained this weekend at the CFK cert in STL. Great things to change lives and empower our students and make them successful at all levels.

What an intense but wonderful weekend at CrossFit Melbourne. All seminar staff (Danny, Drum, Lily, Ollie, Sarah, Ed, and Matty) were super professional and superbly passionate about CrossFit. I look forward to nurturing in myself and others, what is an amazing fitness program.

Had a great weekend at the CrossFit Stockport Level 1 cert. Lots of good people there, awesome coaches (their Sunday lunch WOD was inspiring) and learned a lot. Learning and beginning to succeed with the muscle-up was the surprise and personal highlight. Thanks to all involved!

Shout out to the staff @Crossfit Country!! You guys were incrededable!! Todd congrats on your first ab mat sit up!! Melady I will keep stretching!!
Obviously I need spell check!!
This was an awesome class!!!!!! The team that taught in Hawaii has such a great teaching style!!!! I'm definitely going to remember: "heaps betta!", "rolling around like bacon sizzling", "hold it like you are holding a fishbowl", "1 2 3 Break!" "Knees out!"
Great course at crossfit country. Mike and crew were hilarious and informative!
CrossFit Kids course at CrossFit Rocks this weekend was such a valuable learning experience. I believe every L1 Trainer should attend this certification. Staff were brilliant and knowledgable, content was up to date and extremely relevant. The future of actual fitness and revolutionary change really does lay in our Kids programs. Get on it L1 Trainers. Can't wait to kick off our Kids program.
Thank you to all the instructors at the Hawaii L1 cert. for such an amazing experience. You all took me to a higher level. IMUA!!!!!!!!
Hardass fitness Honolulu was where all the action was this weekend! Thank you crossfit team for an amazing and inspiring weekend, and most of all for all the knowledge the trainers passed on to us. I am very sore, but very happy :)
Crossfit Central Downtown, even though temps were below freezing we had an amazing time. The crew was super informative and entertaining. They made the weekend so much fun that I hated to see it end. The strenght and ability that these trainers demonstrated was off the chart!! I really wish I could do this every weekend. Thank you guys!!!
What a truly inspirational and amazing weekend I have had at crossfit Reykjavick. The trainers were friendly, excellent and highly knowledgeable.The staff and facilities were fantastic, and best of all I have made a whole new community of friends from all over the world who share the same passion towards crossfit as I do.Thank you all.Jess
Awesome experience at the Level 1 cert at Crossfit Morristown. And in the words of Karianne Dickson, "more cowbell".
Awesome weekend at Reebok Crossfit Louvre! Thank you so much Karl, Nolan, Simon, Justin and Pedro for everything you brought to the seminar!
I am very happy with the course, with all that was past and the way it was passed. Teachers deserve a score of 10! Congratulations to crossfit and trained teachers that it has.
Alllloooohhhaaa!!! As Erik said, throw lots of Hawaiian terms in to make this obvious! ha The ohana that came to Hardass Fitness Hawaii rocked the house - I left so invigorated and motivated to continue to drive performance in CF and help others. I still can't believe getting a strict muscle-up was just due to right technique - thanks Matt Chan for making that happen! The entire team of CrossFit Coaches was incredible - Erik, Matt, Laura, Stacey, Amy, Dave, Kimo - WOW!! They spoke so clearly and knowledgeably about every facet of CrossFit in the L1 Cert - I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS RIGHT AWAY and not waited a year after starting. For anyone thinking about this - it is expensive, but WELL WORTH IT. Mahalo nui loa and a hui hou...I'll be back for more certs later! GO GET SOME!
Foi muito top... mesmo ja treinando Crossfit aprendi muita coisa nova, agora é esperar o resultado da prova!!
CFK @ CFRocks has to be one of the best courses I have ever done. I feel I am ready to pass CrossFit on to the younger generation now. I have tried it out on my 4yr old and it really does work, she hasn't stopped asking me to do squats with her so she can 'stand like super woman'!!
Thanks CrossFit Kids
Level 1 Cert at Crossfit Country was amazing. The whole group of trainers and all the athletes made for a great weekend! Thank you Todd for helping me get my first strict ring muscle up! You guys rock!
Thank you CrossFit Country! Learned so much this past weekend! Thanks to all of our great Coaches!!
Anyone received results from their L1 test?
C'mon where are the results already??
I had an awesome time and learned so much that validated my fitness beliefs. To the industry nay Sayers that have zero experience with the concepts and training methods of Crossfit, take a L1 course before you voice your opinions. Eric I received my test results and I passed. Thank you L1 coaches for your professionalism and sore abs not just from the playtime sessions but laughs! Hope to see you soon once again!
Has anybody got there results?
