OK, so usually we have our Coach guest blog on Wednesdays, and those WILL continue! However, we’re going to get some other things in the mix too. Today some announcements & teases:
Bi-monthly we now have a community event that coincides with our programming for that cycle. The idea is that the movements and stimulus we see during those 8 weeks will prepare you for the event at the end.
It not only gives us something fun to look forward to that we can share as a group, but it also provides an opportunity to see that our training is working and we can enjoy the fruits of those efforts.
In May we had Murph, in July we had Rumble in the Box, in September you will have…
to wait for the official announcement next week! Rest assured it will be pretty darn fun, something totally different, AND get us out of the box and into the world!
One of the new weekly features you will be seeing is a member spotlight. I’ll be sending out some questionnaires late this week that will collect a series of information on each of you willing to participate.
By no means is it necessary, but I’d love for us all to get to know each other a little better, find out something interesting, hear about one another’s struggles & triumphs, and most importantly have a chance to feature some of the awesome people we have here!
What’s an ITP? It’s an Instructor Training Program, and maybe it’s right for YOU!
The best way to find and integrate new coaches is to promote from within. In 2011, 2012, & 2013 CFHV had ITP programs that ran for roughly 6 months each, that trained every coach you see here today.
That picture above is the very first ITP at our CFL1 with some pretty famous faces! Can you recognize them all?
This very comprehensive program will meet once per week for about 90 minutes, and will take those interested through the entire process necessary to become a CrossFit coach.
The program is FREE, but does require a serious commitment to consistency in attendance, and adherence to the protocols & homework contained therein.
The program will launch the first week of October. Think you may be interested?
All I require is you write me a short “letter of intention” of why you want to become a CrossFit Coach. It’s first step in an unbelievably rewarding process.
