CrossFit Catonsville - Hiring L1+ or Intern Coaches! (Baltimore, MD)

Howdy all!

CrossFit Catonsville (located just south-west of Baltimore, Maryland) is expanding, and we are looking for a few new coaches to fill out our ranks!

Read the below, and send me a private message if you're interested and qualified! When you apply, please include your Fitness Resume, three (preferably fitness-related) references, and a short letter about why you're interested in working with us. I can also answer any questions you may have.

We have openings for both CF-L1+ and Intern (un-certified) coaches. All positions are Part-time, for now, with potential to expand as time goes on.

General Requirements for All Applicants:
  • You should be outgoing, with a positive attitude
  • You should be ready and willing to lead classes, either on your own or while supervised by a more senior coach
  • You should have a passion for fitness and improving the lives of others
  • The #1 rule of our box is "Don't be a jerk", and that goes for coaches too
  • You should be ready and willing to perform non-coaching duties as needed, including paper work, member management, and helping keep the facility clean

Credentialed CrossFit Coach (CCC)

The CCC will primarily be responsible for teaching one or more CrossFit classes per week, on a schedule that works for both the gym needs and the coach. You will assist as needed with on-boarding new members, teaching movements, scaling workouts, and providing feedback to members on movements/weights.

  • Meet the General Requirements set out above
  • Hold an active CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification (or higher)
  • Have completed 30+ hours of in-class training experience (approx. 3 months)
  • Show the ability to perform and teach all CrossFit movements covered in the CF-L1 course.
  • Be able to lead, motivate, and keep on track a class of up to 12 athletes with various fitness/experience levels by yourself
  • Be open to developmental training and critique (i.e. leave your ego at the door)

  • Have completed 120+ hours of in-class training experience (approx. 12 months)
  • Hold one or more CrossFit SME certifications (gymnastics, oly lifting, etc)
  • Have one or more additional fitness specialties (martial arts, yoga, etc) that may segue into additional class offerings for CFC

CFC Padawan Coach Program

The CFC Padawan Coach Program is a 6 month paid internship program providing 50+ hours of in-class hands-on coaching experience.

The ideal applicant will have prior experience in a coaching environment, 6+ months of experience with the CrossFit methodology as an athlete, and knowledge of how to perform many of the CrossFit movements at a basically proficient level.

Applicants with little CrossFit experience, but who have experience as fitness trainers (personal, group, sport-specific, etc.) and who want to work towards becoming a CrossFit Level 1 trainer should also apply.

At the end of the 6-month program, interns may (probably will) be offered a position as a Credentialed CrossFit Coach, provided they can pass the CF-L1 certification.

If you're interested, get in touch!
