Nicole Passes the CCFT and Earns the Certified CrossFit Coach Credential
Coaching, in any sport, is equal parts science and art. Nicole Christensen has proven that she possesses both.
In July, CrossFit took a massive leap in the world of professional training and released a four-level certificate and certification process accredited by the National American Standards Institute. CrossFit is the only program in the fitness industry to require a live, performance-based coaching test as part of its credential and certification process. The highest level of this process is the Certified CrossFit Coach (CF-L4).
By passing the CrossFit Level-4, Nicole earned the title of Certified CrossFit Coach (CF-L4), CrossFit’s highest coaching credential.
She is currently one of 45 individuals worldwide (11 of whom are female) that have earned this credential.
Please join us in congratulating Nicole on this tremendous accomplishment and honor!
