At CFDV, we believe that consistency and progression are the keys to any exercise program. We also believe that since CrossFit is so broad (in it’s application), that it may be tough for some athletes to know where to focus their efforts.
With those things in mind, we’ve created a set of Level standards, similar to those found at a martial arts studio. The levels are divided by colors and each represents a different group of skills and fitness level. The standards are:
CFDV White Band - appropriate for a healthy beginner with 3-6 months of CrossFit experience
CFDV Green Band - appropriate for an intermediate Crossfitter with 3-12 months of experience
CFDV Red Band - appropriate for advanced practitioners with over a year of CrossFit experience
CFDV Black Band – appropriate for elite CrossFitters with competitive experience (standard under development).
Each level is tested in a specially-scheduled Level Test (typically on weekends). Athletes must fulfill all of the requirements before moving onto the next ie. White before Green, Green before Red, etc.
If you are a new CrossFitter, please print off the White Band level sheet and start training towards meeting the standard. Our coaches are here to help you and can offer advice on how best to approach the test, for your individual situation.
