Help me raise the funds for a Level 1 Crossfit Certification!

Becoming Certified

This past year my life has taken a profound turn for the positive, as I've dedicated it to becoming healthy for my family and for myself. Thanks to a change in diet and focus, I've been able to lose forty pounds and completely change my life.

In this journey I found an amazing workout and community in Crossfit. This system puts together my love of weightlifting, gymnastic movements, and high intensity aerobics. Learning the movements and techniques has opened my eyes to fitness and has lit in me a fire for the sport

I've long been a teacher in many arenas, and one of my longest and greatest joys has been teaching others the skills and lessons that I've learned. Becoming certified as a Level 1 Crossfit Instructor will allow me to continue this tradition of teaching others and give me the opportunity to inspire others the way that I myself have been inspired.

So, you'll be like a P.E. coach?

Kinda. Sorta. Not really. The Level 1 Certification allows me to coach at Crossfit gyms (known as "boxes") and lead beginner classes in the movements and exercises central to Crossfit.

This would pay for an entire weekend class, a full Saturday and Sunday in January. This includes the training, the coursework, and a written test at the end of the weekend. It isn't just a piece of paper I'd get at the end, but a full education in Crossfit.

The class itself costs $1,000, and the extra asked for is for the fees here on Indiegogo. With this funding I'd be able to take the class, the test, and receive my certification in full. If I don't meet my goal, I will receive the money I've raised to try again for the next available class.

Your Impact

I've been teaching people martial arts now for close to six years. I know that there is no feeling quite as good as watching someone learn how strong they are. By allowing me the opportunity to become certified as a Crossfit coach, you're placing me in that position again. A position to help people understand just how strong they truly are.
