CrossFit Specialty Course: Law Enforcement Application

This course is restricted to active law-enforcement personnel.

The seminar educates officers on the application of CrossFit for the law-enforcement profession. Attendees will learn how law-enforcement departments across the nation have successfully implemented a CrossFit training program in their academies and in-service training days.

The seminar includes information on how to create a successful nonprofit CrossFit law-enforcement affiliate. Attendees also receive a basic understanding of CrossFit, including administrative talking points, an appreciation of the transference of functional movement to the demands of the law-enforcement profession, and a greater understanding of the application of fitness in law enforcement.

The seminar includes two team-building workouts and an opportunity for officers to network and forge winning partnerships between agencies.
