I emailed out this information to every one of our members earlier this week, but here it is on the blog in case you don't receive our emails.
Here at CrossFit 818, we strive towards offering the most complete strength and conditioning program we can for our members. This includes world-class coaching, goal setting work, and nutrition direction. Of course, this relentless pursuit requires us to have well trained, professional coaches who can not only cover the specifics of movements and coaching methodologies, but also communicate clearly with groups, control the flow of a class, and be present outside of class to help with the organizational aspects of our program.
Perhaps you've seen Chris, Z, Annie, or myself coaching during your time here and wondered what it's like to be a professional coach? Maybe you've thought of learning the ropes yourself and developing the skills involved with be a coach?
We'd like to introduce you to the CrossFit 818 Coaches' Development Program (aka CDP)! This is not a new program at CrossFit 818, as we've had it around for about 7 months, and you've probably already seen some of the positive effects of the program already. You've seen our current CDP members assist during class, maybe teach you a couple warm ups, or you may have ever stumbled onto our super secret CDP meetings early on Saturday mornings... the reason you're hearing about it now is that until now, we kept CDP limited to a small group of hand selected members who were chosen based on our internal discussions and their own level of interest. Now, we're opening CDP up to the entirety of the gym membership. This doesn't mean that everyone can or will be a member of CDP. What it means is that everyone has the opportunity to be a member.
We've prepared a very detailed document that outlines not only the entry requirements, but also what you can expect to actually do, how the program is structured, and what (if any) end result you can expect.
That document is here. It's also attached to this email as a PDF document if that makes it easier for you to read.
If you're interested in joining CrossFit 818's CDP, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat about what your next steps will be.
