Crossfit Level 1 vs. Everything Else
I used this site to pick my personal training cert. I chose NASM. I was extremely pleased with what I learned, the information on this site, and the organizations methods.
I am currently a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. However for a program that is Safe, Effective, and Efficient nothing holds a candle to Crossfit. Now unfortunately the efficacy of Crossfit is not readily apparent. It takes some time and some willingness to be open minded but once you've given it a chance you will never use any of these training or certifying agencies again. Sign up for the Crossfit Journal http://journal.crossfit.com/ and pay 25 dollars a year for a world class fitness program that tops anything on the market today.
For 1,000 dollars you can become Crossfit certified
NASM was about 800.
I owe everything to this site and the information posted here. However I felt that Crossfit fit my desire for observable, repeatable, and measureable fitness. A concept barely defined by most programs that claim it as their goal. Why should we shell out money for programs that can't define their goals.
If you disagree that's fine. Read the Journal. See for yourself.
This site Rocks! And I felt I owed it to this awesome community to put in my 2 cents.
