Trainers getting their train on.


Have you ever had an interest in learning more about the CrossFit methodologies? Do you have an interest to one day down the road work as a CrossFit trainer? Verve often hosts CrossFit Trainer courses throughout the year, you may recognize them as the reason we close some weekends. We do not bring these courses to Verve just to close the gym, we welcome them as a convenient way for you to look into attending one. They provide a wealth of knowledge in a fun filled weekend. . . and it wouldn’t be a CrossFit course if there wasn’t a workout involved. Check out the next 3 coming to Verve over the next few months:

October 8th-9th- CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Course

The Level 1 Certificate Course is an introduction to CrossFit’s methodology and foundational movements. The course includes classroom instruction on these topics, as well as hands-on small-group training for the movements. These group sessions are conducted under low intensity with a focus on improving mechanics. Students’ movements are observed and corrected, and they engage in dialogue concerning effective coaching techniques. Large group CrossFit workouts are conducted as an example of bridging the gap from theory to practice. These workouts provide examples of how to:

  • Conduct a class.
  • Hold a standard of effective technique at high intensity.
  • Achieve relative high levels of intensity for each individual.
  • Scale for any ability level.

The Level 1 provides introductory education on the fundamental principles and movements of CrossFit. It is structured to meet two goals: 1) Provide attendees with the knowledge to better use CrossFit methods for themselves; and 2) Provide attendees with an initial and foundational education to begin training others using CrossFit.
