CrossFit Gainesville- School Of Elite Fitness

Level 1 Testing Is Coming August 2nd!

Level 1 Test is approaching and you may be asking why should I take it? Or what is it's purpose?

Level Testing is a series of standardized tests we've devised to give our members something to test their fitness against. It's measurable, repeatable and fits in line with their everyday training routine. The intent is to provide a clear line of progress or separation of the skills that are acquired as you advance your fitness through the basic level of training. The purpose is also to encourage you to take on more challenge and seek out the Performance level class upon completion of Level 1.

We feel all healthy adults possess the ability to accomplish Level One and encourage you all to train for it. The standards will remain the same so you can specifically improve in your areas of weakness. Over time, you'll find that you are capable of doing the movements as written or if you are already there, they will become easier. Below you'll find the new standards of Level One White Band Test:
