Buddy

LIFE COACH

Buddy is a very good boy. He is a rescue dog, road trip co-pilot, ladies' man and a good listener. He likes treats and belly rubs, but mostly treats. He's a constant presence in the gym.

 
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 2 hour long, CCCF Comprehensive Exam.

But you can’t be any geek off the street,
Gotta be handy with the steel if you know what I mean, earn your keep!
— Mr. Nate Dogg
