Trainer Directory incorrect

Hi All,

I have noticed that the information in the trainers' directory is not correct and I am not sure who to contact to get it fixed. I have contacted seminars@crossfit.com as well as a few other contacts I have found through FAQs, but I have not heard back from anyone. Do you know if there is a number I could call? How can I get in touch with someone? Anyone!

Thanks.

Hi Stephanie,

same here...I'm only a "poor L1", when I have also Gymnastic and Judge cert...

I don't know if your problem is the same, but is a bit annoying...

Re: Trainer Directory incorrect

I had an issue with my Coach's cert and emailed CF seminars. They promptly responded and resolved my issue. Mine was due to the fact I registered for that cert using a different email address than the one tied to my L1. Quickly resolved and shouldn't be a problem any longer.

Good luck... hope you get a quick resolution.

Re: Trainer Directory incorrect

I didn't even know of a trainers directory. Where is it?

Re: Trainer Directory incorrect

For what its worth, I don't think it works anyway.

In my search for a coach for my Garden City location I used the directory to reach out to 2 dozen coaches.

Not a single one emailed me back for more information.

I second this thought, as I emailed about 6 people and never heard back from a single one either.

Re: Trainer Directory incorrect

I just tested contacting myself and the form worked for me. My contact location info is not up to date though (not CrossFit's fault as I didn't notify them I had moved previously) and I've emailed seminars about it, we'll see if I get a reply.

I didn't mean it doesn't function. I just meant that a list of trainers isn't a list of trainers looking for work. You'll invest a bunch of time contacting people who probably won't respond.

My job board lists coaches actively looking for work. That's the difference.

Oooh, totally misunderstood that. I thought you meant the contact form wasn't making it to the trainers and they had no way to know people were attempting to contact them. Strange that people wouldn't at least reply to say "thanks for the offer, but I'm currently not interested."


Update on my situation: I received a reply and was able to get my information updated within one business day.
