CrossFit Workshop: Advanced Gymnastics Skills

The CrossFit Workshop: Advanced Gymnastics Skills is a single-day intensive experience that builds on the fundamentals explored during the two-day CrossFit Gymnastics Specialty Course. Participants will explore the connection between foundational gymnastics and advanced movements through deliberate practice across a wide range of skills, variations, and movements found in CrossFit programming. The student-to-instructor ratio allows for a high level of personal instruction and individual development. Participants leave the workshop with a comprehensive skill set for use in the continued development of themselves or others.
