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. We believe it’s the product of consistent touchpoints that address and develop all aspects of coaching. Beginning in October, CrossFit Roots is opening this hour to CrossFit coaches in the Denver area.

CrossFit Roots

CrossFit Roots opened in 2008 out of a one-car garage.

A Team of Seven CrossFit Level-3 Trainers

For CrossFit Roots’ team of coaches, we believe that one product of this effort is our team of seven Certified CrossFit Level 3 Trainers.
