I found CrossFit while in college and did this for 3 years before being certified, and then another year before I started doing it for pay. I have my own box now (not a CF affiliate) and hope to be able to quit my day job in a few years. Training friends in college is a good way to get experience.

I had no training background and found the Level 1 certification seminar very helpful, others with more experience may not.
