CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Course

This weekend I had the CF-L1 trainer course. And it was awesome!! It was a combination of lectures and practice sessions. The coaches were so good!! Such inspiration. The practice sessions were based around the 9 foundational movements (squat, front squat, overhead squat, shoulder press, push press, push jerk, deadlift, sumo deadlift high pull and medball clean) and really brought everyone back to basics. We had to go through all the progressions of the movements with a pvc pipe.

We also spent some time on the kipping pull up and muscle up progression and on the snatch.

On the first day we did a workout at the end.


In pairs, 3 rounds for time:

  • 15 thrusters
  • 12 burpees

My workout:
Each person had to do one full round and then you swapped. Each doing 3 rounds total. When swapping you had to high five left, high five right, bump feet left, bump feet right and give a chest bump lol. We did the thrusters with 20kg and took about 9.5 minutes.

On day two we also did a workout, where we had to coach each other.


8 minute amrap:

  • 10 push ups
  • 8 med ball cleans
  • 12 abmat situps

My workout:
I did 6 rounds + something. Don’t really remember. This workout was more about the coaching. Although it still got me sweating of course.

The weekend ended with a theory test, so I don’t know yet if I actually passed the course. I will get my results within 10 days, so fingers crossed!


CrossFit Level 1!!

Whoohooooo!! I signed up for the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate course!! I will do the course in April (18th and 19th) and if I successfully attend and pass the test I can call myself a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer :D. Of course it doesn’t mean that I am a good one just after one weekend course, but at least I can start gaining some experience. I have a plan to start organizing active holidays aimed at CrossFitters in Holland. Where I live in Spain is the perfect location for holidays like this and I have enough contacts to organize something fun. I have decided to organize these holidays under the name Active Mo(ve)ments! :D I’m really excited about it!!
