The coaches at CrossFit Atlanta come from diverse athletic backgrounds and experience, but they all have one thing in common, they care. Their passion and commitment to helping you achieve your personal fitness goals is what separates us from other gyms. We know every member and their fitness goals, and strive to provide the training, education, support and motivation to meet these goals. As a coaching staff, we are committed to pursuing excellence and pushing you to thrive, not just survive. We are invested in taking care of you and take pride in helping you to enjoy life. We are in the business of getting you prepared for any obstacle or task life may throw at you.
CrossFit programming relies on complex, multi-joint movements that require and develop coordination. Basically, we teach people how to move correctly. Therefore, a trainer’s technical competence, having a good “coach eye” for recognizing and correcting movement faults, is very important. CrossFit Atlanta takes great pride in the technical competence of its trainers.
The CrossFit Level 1 course is a two day seminar. Attend, pass the written exam, and you are a CrossFit Level 1 trainer. The CrossFit Level 2 trainer designation is a step up from the Level 1.
Formerly, it came via a clinical test was designed to test a trainer’s ability to see and correct movement faults. It was a difficult test that had a 40% pass rate. All the trainers from CrossFit Atlanta who took this test had a 100% pass rate on the 1st try. CrossFit Atlanta has more of these Level 2 trainers than any gym in the area. The new pathway to CrossFit Level 2 comes from taking the CrossFit Coaches’ Prep Course, and we have more of the new L2 certificate trainers than any other Atlanta gym. Also, there are five CrossFit trainers in the Atlanta area who have in the past or who now currently work for CrossFit HQ as trainers of CrossFit trainers, teaching at the Level 1 seminars which aspiring CrossFit trainers must attend. These are the best of the best. Four of those five Atlanta based HQ trainers are at CrossFit Atlanta, though two are no longer actively training clients (they are too busy with CrossFit HQ).
It’s also worth mentioning that several CrossFit L1 trainers who work at other gyms are paying members at our gym.
