092211 THURSDAY SUPPLEMENTAL


For all Iron Major Level One Coaches- and coaches to be (with the LVL 1 Scholarship)

Help Spread the Work through A910
Each elective period (such as the one that yesterday for ILE 11-02) there is an A910 elective, focusing on Comprehensive Soldier Fitness.  In this elective, there is a portion of the course that discusses CrossFit as an exercise methodology and opportunity.   To this end, there are two 1.5 hour blocks where the student come to the bubble to get a brief exposure to CrossFit.  Mr. Mark Tolmachoff is the A910 course author and instructor and is an advocate of CrossFit.

Much of how James and Greg envision that we change our Fundamentals class is similar to how we (Dave Hudson and I) did the last A910 elective sessions.  Thus, teaching an A910 session is good practice for relatively new LVL1s and a good validation for Greg and James' idea.  

The next A910 sessions are 7 OCT at sometime between 0700-0930, and 19 OCT from 1300-1430.  For each session in the past, we had a primary instructor and about 3 alternates.  If you would like to teach one of these sessions as either a primary or an alternate, please let me know.  I have all the materials we used last time, and I will do the initial coordination with Mr. Tolmachoff.  IMCF really should take advantage of teaching these to help dispel some myths about CrossFit and to help to continue to spread the word about Functional Fitness.

I can help on 07 OCT as an assistant. It'll be good prep for the LV1 cert later in the month

I would love to help but distance from FTCKY is a challenge. On a more related note I would to have a copy of the material from the new format. Thanks in advance.

I'll help out on 7 OCT as an assistant...ditto to what Jimmy said.

Soraya said...

I can assist for the 19 October session.

April said...

I should be good for the 19th (pending approval to miss class, which shouldn't be difficult). I can even take primary.

Mac said...

Happy to help for either/both sessions.

Alex E. said...

If I can get my permission slip signed to miss class I can help with the 19 Oct session.

C134 is blocked out for counseling so anyone who has a conflict because of this can probably work around it.

That's a long way of saying I'll be available to assist April in the 19 October class.

Brian S said...

I can help on the 19th of October as a primary or assistant, whatever you need.

Dan said...

I can definitely help out on the 19th. If you need more help on the 7th, I'll fill out my permission slip and see how that goes.

Lance/ Jimmy- I'll count you guys in on the 7th...the 19th looks good, but I would like to have a LVL1 see the 7th and then lead the 19th. Lance or April, can you also do both? Reason being, it would be best to have an Lvl1 see how we did it before, and then carry that over to those who weren't here for the last ones....besides, you'll be the ones taking it from here. If we start at 0700 we'll be done by 0900 and you can be back to class then. Let me know if you can do both.
