So, Jerry sent us a list of benchmarks - there are 4 levels: Healthy beginner, intermediate athlete, advanced athete, elite athlete.
The healthy beginner stage should be able to be reached in 3-12 months. I've been doing Crossfit for 3 months at this point. I'm going to list all of the benchmarks, and where I'm at on them. Some I have surpassed, some I know I have not yet reached, and some I have not tried. The ones in purple are goals I already have set for myself! The ones in orange are goals I have already surpassed, and the ones in red are benchmarks that I have not yet tested.
