We are always looking at the best ways to improve what we’re doing, and how we can provide an even better experience. It’s important to constantly evolve and evaluate how we can be better. Just like we tell all of you, our members!
We’ve had an eye on the Level Method for a year, met with its founder and developer, spent multiple hours researching and truly believe it is a game changer in the CrossFit world.
We are FIRED UP to implement the Level Method, and confident it will be an amazing addition to the College Hill community.
Check out the MAP (“Method of Athletic Progression”) during your next class as it is a detailed yet easy-to-understand chart of athletic tests that measure.
You’ll see a colorful board consisting of Levels moving left to right (separated by vertical lines), and Categories from top to bottom (separated by horizontal lines).
Each category has an upper number (MALE Standard) and a lower number (FEMALE Standard) and there are 32 Levels in each category.
The Level Method measures your fitness across 15 categories that cover 10 “energy systems” and over 60 different functional movements and variations. 🏋🏽
Basically, you’re going to see a TRUE snapshot 📸 of where your fitness is!
The 15 categories are comprised of things like Upper Body Pull, Deadlift, and Running.
Each category moves from left to right →, from beginner to advanced, and correspond to colored levels, similar to a martial arts belt ranking system.
The information you obtain through these tests will show you exactly where you are in your fitness journey.
Knowing exactly where you are in your fitness journey is the first step needed to safely and effectively progress toward your goals.
How will it be implemented?
Beginning Monday, January 13th we’ll begin assessments in all regular CrossFit classes over the course of 2 weeks. There are tons of opportunities to make up missed workouts, so no worries if you can’t make a certain day.
How is this a game changer?
● Accurate representation of current fitness level
● Shows improvements in multiple areas
● Visible path of where to improve & set goals
● Clear communication and guidance from coaches
● Meshes perfectly with what we are currently doing
● Better understanding of “why” behind training
● Ensures correct safety & development
Throughout the following few days you will be receiving a series of non-boring 😂, fun emails so you can get the most out of the Level method.
Until then, keep an open mind, have fun, and buckle up for a great journey! 🚀
Yours in fitness,
The College Hill Team!
