Essay Contest.

CrossFit Roots is pleased to announce that it was asked to host the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course on June 30 – July 1, 2012.  We are very excited to host this two-day seminar.

The CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course serves a number of purposes.  The CrossFit website describes it best:

The Level 1 Trainer Certificate Course introduces the mechanical, conceptual, and theoretical foundations of CrossFit. Additionally, there will be “break out’ sessions for demonstration and practical application of the 9 Foundational Movements. The lectures, demonstrations, presentations, and breakouts all serve to indoctrinate participants with CrossFit’s conceptual underpinnings, while the workouts serve to reinforce/drive home the application.  Events rotate approximately hourly for the duration making for two long days.

The Level 1 Certificate Course serves many different people – it is for the individual who would like to learn about CrossFit for the first time, the individual who has had a life changing experience through CrossFit and wants to gain a deeper understanding of the method, foundation, and movements, and for the individual who would like to take their first step toward coaching athletes.

Now, for the exciting news!

CrossFit Roots has FOUR spots to award to Roots athletes who would like to attend this course.  To enter to earn a spot at the Level 1, submit an essay to us by April 30th.
