How do I get started?

The path to opening a CrossFit affiliate begins with paying your affiliate application fee. You will get access to the Affiliate Starter Kit - an interactive, detailed course designed to help new gyms owners, and additional CrossFit HQ resources!


Attending and passing the Level 1 Certificate Course is required for anyone seeking to establish a CrossFit affiliate and is the foundational training required to help others become fitter and healthier with CrossFit. This two-day, in-person seminar provides an introductory education on the fundamental principles and movements of CrossFit. Starting in 2024, all affiliate owners — existing and new — will be required to obtain a current L2 credential. Those who need to earn the credential will have 12 months following their renewal signing to enroll in a Level 2 Certificate Course."
