It's official! I'm a Cross Fit Level - 1 Trainer. I attended a grueling weekend of seminars and workouts hosted by the Cross Fit Affiliate at the University of California - San Diego. Needless to say I learn quite a bit about how to: breakdown complex Olympic Lifts; execute basic gymnastic drills with precision; how to design high intensity workouts that elicit a big calorie burn, boosts metabolism and preserves strength and lean muscle. We touched on nutrition, which I found to be a good review.
Finally after two long days of instruction, workouts and lectures, I sat for the test. I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation of the material and ease with which it was taught. The best part of the weekend was all the nice people I meet in the process. It was a fun experience. Boy am I glad I studied for the test!
