About to attend CF L1 Cert.

After two years I'm finally around to attend the L1 Cert! I've been reading the journal for about 18 months of that, though frequency tends to drop off when work picks up.

I'm fairly comfortable with the concepts and a friend has donated his time so I can spend most of this week rehearsing instruction for the fundamental movements.

Due to a recurring injury, face time within the community has dropped off more than I'd like over the last 8 months. Luckily there's always the huge online Crossfit community!

What I'm looking for is any advice for preparation and attending the course. I have a background in instructing and team leading through the military but this will be a group with more diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and personalities which will present its own unique challenges.

Any common misconceptions or mistakes that people succumb to during their own prep or during the course to be aware of, or other methods people have found useful will be a great help.

You dont need to prepare much for level one. It is a learning experience. Go in with an open mind. (though you may want to pratice "fran")

Re: About to attend CF L1 Cert.

Read the material they give you in advance, pay attention during the lectures, don't overthink the questions on the test.

It's pretty much the same prep you should do for any class.
