Crossfit Cert.

Weight Training Journal

Crossfit Certification

This weekend i am at a Crossfit certification. I am taking the time to learn about the ideas and principles behind Crossfit. It has grown tremendously over the bast few years and i think you will continue.

CrossFit offers three levels of trainer certification: Level 1, Level 2, and a Coach's Certificate.

Level 1 Certifications

On completing a Level 1 CrossFit certification, attendees will have sufficient understanding of CrossFit's methods, concepts, and movements to continue independent and successful development as a CrossFit trainer or athlete.

Topics covered include:

Epistemological model, fitness defined, CrossFit defined, bioenergetics, biomechanics, cardiorespiratory conditioning, phase adaptation of endurance training, modal transference of conditioning, stamina, strength, power, speed, flexibility, coordination, accuracy, balance, agility, Olympic lifts, gymnastics fundamentals, functional exercises, variance, intensity and power, programming, neuroendocrine adaptation, program implementation, special populations, theoretical hierarchy of athletic development, nutrition, hyperinsulinism, macronutrient ratios, equipment, team workouts, core training, and wellness continuum. The focus is on fundamentals, mastery, and virtuosity.

All the best in your weight and programs.
