Certified CrossFit Coach

Eligibility Requirements

Coming Soon!

The Certified CrossFit Coach (CCFC) performance evaluation is a one-day assessment of a trainer’s ability to coach CrossFit movements in a small group setting. This is not an instructional course; it is an evaluation only. Successful candidates earn the designation of Certified CrossFit Coach (CCFC), which is CrossFit’s highest credential offered for trainers.

This evaluation is for experienced trainers who have been coaching CrossFit for several years in a group setting. The successful candidate is comfortable coaching a group of athletes of varied and unknown abilities through any number of movements common to CrossFit.

  • Seeing: The ability to quickly identify gross and subtle movement faults, in both static and dynamic positions.
  • Correcting: The ability to make a tangible, visible difference for more efficient, effective, and safe movement.
  • Group Management: The ability to manage the mechanical aspects of running a group (e.g., time, organization).
  • Presence and Attitude: The ability to demonstrate a positive and engaging demeanor.
  • Demonstration: The ability to provide a correct visual example of the movement being taught.
