We have 2 members who have graduated from Level 1 to Level 2 (Ralph Roure and Joe Boccelli), and many more who would like to join them.  Starting on Saturday, September 11th, we will hold weekly classes after the Saturday Team WOD for those of you who would like to work on your skills.  You can also find the skills on our Resources page.

What do you receive when you have completed Level 1 and graduate to Level 2?

  • Certificate of Completion
  • Your name on plaque that will be displayed in the AK CrossFit room
  • T-shirt
  • A attendance card (green instead of red)
The ten generally recognized components of physical fitness are: cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, stamina, flexibility, coordination, agility, balance, accuracy, power and speed. A varied workout program like CrossFit develops all of these components. To maximize vertical growth (development of new strengths and skills), it helps to set goals, measure progress, and aim for balance among the skills. The Athletic Skill Levels make goal-setting more efficient and allow you to evaluate your progress through four levels of fitness.
Developing expertise in any area requires determined, consistent effort. It takes “grit.” But grit will not help you if you are only reinforcing existing strengths (horizontal growth) instead of developing weak areas into strength (vertical growth). The Levels are designed to provide a general fitness perspective, to help set appropriate goals, and to allow focus work on weak areas that result in the rewarding mastery of activities you couldn’t do before.
