CrossFit Certifications

CrossFit Certifications are advanced credentials that ensure experienced individuals possess broad knowledge and finely honed abilities in the field of professional training. The certifications provide the public with an assurance of competency and professional accountability by:

  • Requiring a significant number of practical coaching hours before application;
  • Including examination questions that require analysis and application of knowledge gained from coaching experience;
  • Using performance-based examination to evaluate skills and coaching in real time;
  • Publishing Standards of Professional Practice to which certified trainers and coaches must adhere;
  • Ensuring commitment to a long-term standard of continuing education.

Individuals who have earned Certified CrossFit Level 3 Trainer or Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach credentials will redefine fitness-industry standards through their dedication to results-based programming and training, practical application of knowledge, and comprehensive coaching ability.

Certified CrossFit Level 3 Trainer (CF-L3)

The Certified CrossFit Level 3 Trainer has demonstrated competency across a breadth of CrossFit material. They understand CrossFit methodology and coaching via the Certificate Courses, have significant CrossFit coaching experience, and have passed the ANSI-accredited Certified CrossFit Trainer examination.

Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach (CF-L4)

The Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach credential is a one-day performance evaluation of a trainer's ability to coach CrossFit movements in a small group setting. This is not an instructional course; this is a test to evaluate coaching skills. Successful completion earns the participant the designation of Certified CrossFit Coach.
