Affiliation Requirements


We require an applicant to be at least a Level 1 Certificate holder before applying for affiliation. We offer Level 1 Certificate Courses throughout the year in many locations around the world. A CrossFit Level 3 Certificate also meets this requirement.



U.S. affiliates will be required to submit proof of insurance. Insurance can be purchased from a variety of companies. CrossFit, however, does encourage using the CrossFit Risk Retention Group (RRG) that we think offers the best insurance for CrossFit affiliates. The RRG is an insurance group formed and run by CrossFit affiliates. You can read more about the RRG here. Please see the Insurance section for more detailed information.

You are required to send us a certificate of insurance (COI) with the following information:

  • Comprehensive general liability of $1,000,000 per occurrence/$2,000,000 aggregate.
  • Professional liability coverage of $1,000,000.00.

Please list the following as named insureds on your policy: your corporate entity, your name, and your CrossFit DBA (if applicable).

You must list CrossFit, LLC. as an additional insured (certificate holder). The address for CrossFit, LLC. as additional insured is:

CrossFit, LLC.
2617 Broadway

Boulder, CO 80304

In the box labeled “Description of Operations/Locations…” you must have the following:

  • Must include your physical gym address.
  • The verbiage “Certificate holder added as additional insured.”


While we do not require our other international affiliates to submit proof of insurance, we strongly recommend they carry it.


As of Jan 1, 2011, affiliation costs US $3,000 annually. Affiliates in Australia, Canada, Brazil, the United Kingdom and the below European countries will pay in their local currency plus applicable taxes, see below for price table.

Once you are affiliated, you will need to have a live website before we will be able to link you on the Affiliate Finder Map and Affiliate List. This is our primary vehicle for promoting you; therefore, we expect you to maintain a good website. Please do not register a domain with the CrossFit name in it until after your affiliate application has been approved; CrossFit is a licensed trademark and its use without our prior permission is illegal.

Below are the website requirements for licensed affiliates. Please do not publish an affiliate website until after your affiliation paperwork has been finalized.

  • You must have the CrossFit Journal logo/link on your CrossFit homepage. The link needs to go to the “Start here” page, not just the Journal home page. Please use the exact code found here.
  • If you are a gym that is not solely CrossFit (i.e. you offer martial arts, etc.), you must create a separate CrossFit page on your website. Please be sure you put the CrossFit Journal link on your CrossFit page.
  • All links to CrossFit materials must be links to the CrossFit site. You cannot use locally hosted versions of CrossFit material (e.g., PDF files, etc).
  • Ensure all content on your site is original or properly attributed. In other words, if you copy (or paraphrase) any content from the main site or another affiliate, you must give credit. “Courtesy of CrossFit, LLC.” is fine.
  • All photos from crossfit.com and the CrossFit Journal, and all CrossFit logos and graphics are copyrighted by CrossFit, LLC. and none may be used without permission and attribution. The Athena (pit bull) graphics are not available for use.
  • No wholesale reproduction of main site content is authorized. Please link instead.
  • Place your CrossFit affiliate name in a prominent location, and always please remember to capitalize the “F” whenever you use the trademark “CrossFit.”
  • The affiliate name provided on the site (e.g., CrossFit ABC) should be exactly the same as the name used in the license agreement.
  • Include actual location (city, state) and contact info somewhere prominent on the site.
