Re: On Ramp/Fundamentals Class?

I run a 4 class Elements Course for anyone that is new to CrossFit. If they have experience, ie, from another CF gym, athletic background, etc., they have to go through a movement screen. My movement screen consists of all the squats, deadlifts, press type lifts, and oly lifting. They have to pass my screen without instruction or assistance from me the trainer. It's a free screen that takes 5 minutes. Typically people ask me if they can meet 15 min before class and I screen them then. If you are experienced and been around CF, you WILL KNOW whether this person passes typical movement patterns. Load, intensity, etc. are all things you have to learn about people anyway, so that is not of concern.
