RX plus, level 1/level2/level3, advanced/intermediate/beginner, all are titles of scaling a workout either up or down.  This has been a topic of discussion for a long time.  Let me give you my thoughts on it:  The motto we use is "program for the best and scale for the rest."  The reason for this is that we want ALL of our members to be able to get the same response from the workout that we are doing.  We have high level athletes that do or workouts in the gym and abroad.  The weights are set to make them have a tough workout that lasts a particular amount of time just as the not as elite athlete when they workout doing the scaled version.  If you look right after a listed weight in our programming, there will be a % of 1RM or a wt to get XX reps unbroken.  This means that you and the trainer will decided what weight will allow you to perform to the correct intensity using this formula.  You may be RX on some weights and below on others based on your abilities or issues.  If there were "levels" then you would have to pick on or the other, even though you could do a portion of it in a higher "class".  Without these level or classifications, you can make the workout work BEST for you.  this would allow you to have the best chance for increases in your abilities and over gains in whatever the workout is trying to achieve.  Some say its demeaning or degrading that the RX is so high and the it makes people think they never succeed.  I disagree.  From what i have seen, members know the caliber of athlete that can do the workouts RX.  When they are able to hit a workout RX, they are ELATED!!!  It boosts their confidence much higher than if they we able to do the 2nd highest classification scale structure of the workout.  The bar is set high for a reason:  there is always the goal to attain.  If that isnt your goal, then with way the workout is written, you will be able to know exactly how to get the response of the workout.  If the workout is meant to be 12-15 minutes and you do it in 6, you got the wrong response.  if its supped to be 4-6 minutes and it took you 10-12, you got the wrong response.  We dont set heavy and hard just to mess people up or because we think we are cool.  We do it because we KNOW that its the best way to program:) (isnt that right josh;) )
