CrossFit Level 2 Certificate Course

The Level 2 Certificate Course is an intermediate-level seminar that builds on the concepts and movements introduced at the Level 1 certificate course.

This course is ideally suited for any CrossFit trainer serious about delivering quality coaching. Students enhance their understanding of the CrossFit methodology, program design and implementation, and they advance their skills while coaching others in movements and workouts. Students need to come prepared to be heavily engaged; each leads individual and small-group training sessions, and classroom sessions are discussion-based. Peers and instructors provide feedback and evaluation.
