Had a great weekend getting certified at the Level 2.
The L2 course is a workshop that focuses on training skills. The only prerequisite for the L2 is to hold the L1 certificate, however there is a strong recommendation that applicants for the L2 serve at least 6 months training athletes in CrossFit before attempting the L2. L2 classes address mostly hands-on time with smaller groups to enhance training methods and techniques.
The Level 2 is meant to provide students with improved skills, a strong sense of their strengths and weaknesses, and actionable ways to improve. In a vacuum, one could assume a CF-L2 trainer is a more experienced and self-aware CrossFit trainer who has spent time identifying strengths and weaknesses, than a CF-L1 trainer.
