Certification Certificate

On June 13th, I took the Level I certification test at Milwaukee and passed but the certificate were not handed out. Did anyone who passed at this get their certificates and if so how do I receive mine?

Re: New to the Forum? ***READ THIS FIRST***

Thanks for all the insight to the info!!

Today was my 2nd day of CF. I am so pumped and a bit sore! I have never work as hard or felt as good after a work out! The trainer, Dan, told me about the web site and eating better. He recommended the Paleo Diet. I will be getting the book and look forward to changing my life style. This is going to be a great journey!

Stats-- 49 yrs old, 6-1, 270lbs I don't know my % of fat/muscle. But my gut is big, sooooo

Goals: To be as fit and healthy as I can be and to lose 50 lbs by my 50th b-day in February.

Welcome Wayne!

I wont lie to ya, every time is hard . The stronger ya get the more weight ya use. The more conditioning you get the faster you go, it never gets easier because you are always pushing to accell.

That being said, workouts are scaled to your ability. You will likely be pushed but expect to take it a little easy as you body adjusts to the workout intensity.

Re: New to the Forum? ***READ THIS FIRST***

I am a Newbie. To the post, and am 2 months into Crossfit. I am an RN, in an upper management position, so high stress. I'm 51 years old, tired, out of shape and don't sleep well at all. So I'm diving in full on. Have been eating almost pure Paleo for several months... Thanks for this site, my employees are getting tired of me talking about it all the time!

Re: New to the Forum? ***READ THIS FIRST***

im looking for some guidance.

i play football (soccer) and i am relatively new to CF although i've trained with weights for about 5 years or so. I'm very fit, cardio wise, and fairly strong i bench 120kg squat 140kg deadlift 155kg

My problem is i am not sure which is the best way to fit it in to my training. i train monday nites and thursday nites and our match days are saturdays. I've tried just doing it as per WOD but i find if I train my legs from wednesday onwards then my legs feel heavy still on the saturday. Does this mean i need to train them more and in time they won't feel heavy once i'm more used to it?

Prior to crossfit I just did heavy weight training (I did my running at football) and worked my legs once a week.

Any ideas on how should fit it in and wat days i should rest?
