Coaches are the key to effective personal, team and group training. XS CrossFit believes truly effective coaching occurs with an ongoing relationship based on experience, mutual honesty and trust between the coaches and participants. XS CrossFit coaches are highly skilled CrossFit coaches/athletes with years of experience. Our coaches are by no means all alike, but they possess a common body of qualifications and capabilities to guarantee you the best possible range of Fitness coaching available. One of our overall goals is the ongoing education of our coaches. This includes many Specialty Certificate Courses, Seminars and continuous studying to provide the most up to date level of coaching knowledge. By pushing coaches’ education it helps us as coaches better recognize each athlete’s potential and help each athlete reach or exceed their personal best.
