Continuing Education

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the ongoing learning process a Certified Trainer employs to advance professional knowledge, skills and abilities beyond minimum requirements. This ongoing learning process is accomplished by activities such as attending seminars, courses or lectures; attending coaching workshops, or participating in advisory panels.

It is expected that through the CPD process, trainers will develop goals and follow individualized learning plans to ensure that they meet and exceed the standard of practice in the fitness industry. Appropriate CPD activities are empirically based (i.e., have some practical application and are not purely theoretical), relevant and applicable to improving fitness and health as defined by CrossFit, presented by a qualified source or instructor who is in good standing with CrossFit, LLC, and free from commercial bias.

Certificants are required to complete 36 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) of approved professional-development activities within the three category types.

RowingWOD Seminar

This seminar is for athletes, coaches and trainers of all ages that want to get better at rowing, build a bigger engine and improve their mental game. The main takeaway from this seminar is that rowing is much more than just a movement tested in competitive fitness and CrossFit™ competitions. It is a tool that can build your aerobic capacity when integrated into a structured and progressive training programme. It is also an invaluable tool to test an athlete’s mindset and to build mental toughness, which crosses over into so much more than rowing.

The Female Athlete Level 1 (TFA-L1)

TFA-L1 is a continuing education course for clinicians and fitness professionals who work with females (assigned female at birth). There is a lot of fearful and restrictive messaging about female health concerns such as urinary incontinence (UI - bladder leaking), pelvic organ prolapse (POP - pelvic organ descent and heaviness in the vagina), pre and post natal exercise, and diastasis rectus abdominus (DRA - stretching through the abdominal wall). Through TFA-L1, participants will identify their own beliefs and frameworks, challenge those beliefs through movement experiments and research review, and consider a new set of principles to guide their work with clients. These concepts are solidified through diastasis assessment, external pelvic floor assessment, and movement labs looking at lunges, squats, deadlifts, core exercises, running/pivoting and impact activities like box jumps and skipping. Participants leave the course feeling confident, inspired, empowered, and ready to take their clients (and themselves!) to the next level.

Two-Brain Business - RampUp

RampUp is a twelve-week intensive mentoring program. Mentorship is a guided process from your current spot toward your “perfect day.” A mentor provides a model for success; but, more than that, a good mentor understands both parts of the decision-making process, and does what’s necessary to a) help you reach decisions; then b) enact necessary changes in the best way possible. Every week, clients will spend an hour on the phone with a Two-Brain Business mentor. They'll be guided in the development of systems that will last decades, and solidify their business. Participants start with a data collection survey in which they report metrics. From there, the mentor builds a customized call progression. Each call includes assignments for followup, with video reviews of the material and templates, as well as accountability and planning for the next stages.
