Certified CrossFit Coach

Eligibility Requirements

Coming Soon!

The Certified CrossFit 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 an assessment​ ​to evaluate coaching skills. Successful​ ​candidates​ ​earn​ ​the designation​ Certified CrossFit Level 4 Coach (CF-L4​​), which is CrossFit's fourth and 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.


1. CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate (CF-L1)

2. CrossFit Level 2 Trainer Certificate (CF-L2)

This evaluation will be available soon. Check back here for further information.


CrossFit's assessor staff will evaluate each candidate's effectiveness as a coach in a small group setting using the following six criteria:

  • Teaching: The ability to clearly and accurately communicate the essential elements of each movement.
  • 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.
