Coaches Development Hour at CrossFit Roots
For the past 6 years, the coaching staff at CrossFit Roots has gathered together on the 1st Monday of every month to hold Coaches Development Hour. Expert coaching doesn’t happen overnight.

Winter 2018 In-Person Program
Join Ali, Nicole, and fellow like-minded coaches at CrossFit Roots in February, March, and April for Coaches Development Hour. Each session will be 1-hour and 45-minutes in length. The first hour will be run exactly the same as Roots’ internal coaches development hour, which makes it easy to apply the material in your own gym. The last 45-minutes will include bonus hands-on practice time with the monthly topic, case studies, extra Q&A time and more.
