Inside the Level 2 Course
The Level 2 course provides an opportunity for CrossFit trainers to refine their training skills over two days of classroom work, one-on-one training, and group sessions. Participants should come prepared to be deeply engaged. Classroom sessions are discussion-based, and each student will lead individual and small group sessions. Peers and instructors provide guidance and feedback throughout the weekend.
Discussion-based classroom sessions develop participants through adaptable real-time consideration of specific coaching questions with instructors and peers.
Participants receive direct feedback from peers and instructors in one-on-one coaching settings.
Group coaching opportunities refine participants’ abilities to teach, see, and correct individual movement while managing a larger group in a dynamic environment.
Daily group workouts help participants put theory into practice.
