CrossFit L1 Seminar in Kanagawa & Kai's L1 Experience
One of our members, Kai, attended the Level 1 CrossFit seminar last December and kindly shares his experience on our blog page.
If you are interested in the seminar or just want to get a feel for the atmosphere, read on!
On Dec 19 & 20 I went to the CrossFit Level 1 course at CrossFit Motomachi Bay in Kanagawa.
It was my first time both to visit Kanagawa and to take the L1 test so I felt quite nervous.
The test itself was just a written exam at the end of the second day, but on the first and second days we studied the basics of CrossFit, the fundamental movements (squat, shoulder press, etc.) and actually did CrossFit workouts.
It was fun to work out in a different atmosphere from CrossFit Kyoto and work up a sweat with CrossFitters from all over Japan. Many different people came to the L1 course, some wanted to become coaches, some were CrossFit enthusiasts, and others were CrossFit beginners just taking the test as a personal challenge. One thing we all had in common was a love of CrossFit and the L1 course was a great opportunity for all of us to learn more about it.
I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with CrossFit and spending more time with the members of CrossFit Kyoto. Let’s work out together (￣∀￣) !
