Took this course 2 years ago and found lots value in explaining the basics of the hollow position, pull-ups, handstand holds, among other core movements.
The CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Course sets athletes up for a lifetime of strength and movement. “I’ve got a 70-year-old man who took our course eight years ago who’s almost got a full iron cross,” said Jeff Tucker, subject-matter expert of CrossFit Gymnastics. “He’s 70-plus years old now, and he’s still working his iron cross.” And just as the septuagenarian has strived for almost a decade to perform an iron cross, Tucker and his team have worked to improve the 16-hour CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Course over the last nine years. Tucker explained that the course has grown organically since its creation
Another reason to train your core, maintain an upright posture, and move around. Like how we think and feel, how we move has an effect on stress levels through neural connections. Motor pathways can directly affect our stress-regulating adrenal glands:
“There’s all this evidence that core strengthening has an impact on stress. And when you see somebody that’s depressed or stressed out, you notice changes in their posture. When you stand up straight, it has an effect on how you project yourself and how you feel. Well, lo and behold, core muscles have an impact on stress. And I suspect that if you activate core muscles inappropriately with poor posture, that’s going to have an impact on stress.”

I didn’t realize the value of travel and living abroad until my time in Korea and hopping around Asia. Wouldn’t mind trying out a travel nurse gig down the road.
Actually did this yesterday.
