Do any of the crossfit facilities have internship programs. i have been doing crossfit at my local gym and people dont get what I am doing or why and I get talked to every time. I use to be a personal trainer and really only know when I have read from books and magazines, never agreeing with them truley. I want to get my crossfit cert and one day open my own gym with paleo/zone style food area. Anyone know of any internships

Re: internship

We've had 3 interns, but they were all concurrently seeking degrees in exercise science, or something similar. So they had X amount of hours of work experience they had to complete to get their credits...which lead to the internships. I don't see why a non school related internship couldn't exist as well.

Re: internship

That's a great question! Learning by doing at an experienced CF Affiliate would be very helpful!

Re: internship

I think CrossFit Balboa has interns.

Contact your local affiliate and make an offer, you get free training and you spend X amount of hours working around the gym.
