About the event

Course Description

The Level 1 Certificate Course introduces the methodology, terminology, and movements foundational to CrossFit.  The course is comprised of lectures, movement “break out” sessions for hands-on practice, and workouts.  These elements enable participants to better apply the program for personal use and to begin training others with CrossFit.

This course has a 55 multiple-choice question written test at its conclusion.  Those who meet the requirements below, which include passing the test, earn the designation of: CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.  The test is non-mandatory: a Certificate of Attendance is for those declining to take the test and for those who fail the test.  A Certificate of Attendance does not afford an individual the rights and privileges as those associated with a Level 1 Trainer Certificate.

Course Schedule

  • 9 AM to 6 PM each day with a 1-hour lunch break.
  • Arrive at 8:30 AM on Day 1 to check in at the registration desk.
  • The test occurs at the end of Day 2.
