Yup!! You read that right! I am now a Crossfit Level 1 Trainer! I attended the training the weekend of June 6 and 7, 2015, and had such a blast! I learned so much and enjoyed training with the others there taking the training, as well as working with the CF-L1 instructors. I knew where my weaknesses were before this weekend, so it was nice to get the extra help and pointers in those areas.
It’s also interesting because now my “coach’s eye” has come out…or been more honed. I tend to give feedback and help now, even though I’m not technically a coach anywhere. But it’s neat to see how it’s changed my perspective. And it certainly piqued my interest in getting other certifications, as well as (hopefully one day) becoming a coach. I’ve inquired about potentially interning or shadowing at my gym, so cross your fingers I get this opportunity :)
I’m so excited to see what this may hold for me in the future. I’ve wanted to become a personal trainer for awhile now, so this is just one step closer to reaching that goal. It’s also helped me focus more on my form and becoming better and stronger in the movements. It’s made training more fun and focused, which has been amazing. Not that it wasn’t before, but now there’s more purpose.
I don’t even know if I’m making any sense, but I’m excited and wanted to share my thoughts :)
And this past weekend, I participated in the X-Corps Adventure race with three other members from my gym. It’s basically a race full of different events/challenges, along with some questions/challenges to make you think…it puts your brain and body to the test! It was so hot and a lot of work, but it was so much fun!! For some reason, my computer isn’t letting me add any pictures from this weekend, which is too bad because they are pretty funny. We drew tattoos on ourselves and wore fanny packs for the whole workout :)Gotta love it!
Instead, I’ll just leave this little gem here for you because I think it’s cute :P
I hope you’re having an amazing week! Thanks for indulging my excitement!
With love and wellness,
