I want to take a second today to congratulate Trey and Jordy of obtaining their Level 2 CrossFit Trainer Certificates over the weekend! Good job men.
I also want to explain a little bit about what that means.
Level 1 – Has a Test. Minimum requirement to train people. Also the minimum requirement to become a CrossFit affiliate. This means you know what CrossFit is supposed to look like, and what it’s supposed to be about.
Level 2 – No Test. This is the certification that actually teaches you how to coach CrossFit. Why is this? The idea is that you would go try hard to practice your craft, develop some ideas, and then show up at the L2 with a million questions and readiness to learn. And that’s exactly what happens.
Level 3 Certified Trainer- Big Test. The level 3 is only a test. No class. You can think of this as a degree in CrossFit. There is also a requirement of 750 hours of actual coaching experience. There are currently 150 Level 3 Certified CrossFit Trainers in the world and 1 in Louisiana. I’m that guy.
I don’t say any of this to toot our horns but I felt that it was important for you guys to be proud of your boxes and understand that many of CF affiliates around do not even have a single Level 2 Trainer. We pride ourselves in not being satisfied with the minimum requirements, but even more in having stuff to teach you and help you in your goals.
The CFBB/CFSL Staff is currently comprised of:
7 Coaches with their L1 Certificate
5 of those have their L2 Certificates
1 of those has their L3 Certification
Between those coaches are also the following certifications:
