Britt stared at Choice City CrossFit in August of 2015 participating in Ladies’ Night, and quickly realized she wanted to do more.

So you want to be a Coach at Choice City? Our interns go through a comprehensive program to ensure the quality of our coaching staff.

We don’t mess around with the capabilities of our coaches.
In order for us to provide the best possible coaching experience, we run coaching candidates with 6 months or more of consistent attendance at CCCF through our Instructor Training Program.
We do not hire CF-L1 athletes sight unseen. We grow them from within.

ITP consists of 10 classroom sessions covering Foundational Movements, Metabolism, Scaling, etc., 3 observational hours, 40 co-coaching hours, 2 evaluation classes, and Intro session familiarity.

Once those are all completed, the athlete must attain and hold their CrossFit Level 1 (or higher) and take the 4-hour long, CCCF Comprehensive Exam.

Candace makes her bread and butter managing a couple local occupational medicine clinics for a Colorado based company. Outside of the gym and work, Candace is kept very busy raising a spunky energetic daughter, spending time with her family, and attending local events with friends as much as possible.
