My Experience at the CrossFit Strongman Trainer Course

Hey Everyone,

This past weekend I attended the CrossFit Strongman Trainer Course and wanted to share my experience in the event others might be interest in attending.

I have been to several specialty courses; to include CrossFit Gymnastics, CrossFIt Endurance, CrossFit Powerlifting, and will be attending the CrossFit Weightlifting Trainer Course this weekend. I plan on writing about each experience in the future. These courses in my opinion are great options to build upon your knowledge and foundation not only as a coach, but as an athlete as well.

There are many great coach courses / seminars and avenues to further your education, to name a few: USAW Level 1 Cert., MDUSA-Pendlay Certs., Catalyst Athletics Weightlifting Cert. are all great options. CrossFit courses are not the end all be all, but definitely grade A in my opinion and taught by passionate and extremely talented CrossFit Coaches.

I believe education should be constant in the realm of coaching, as coaches, we are mentors and leaders in our CrossFit Affiliates; we owe it to our athletes to provide them with the best we can offer in order to help them progress and achieve their goals. If you, as a coach, stop learning, then eventually you’ll stop progressing and so will your athletes, who deserve everything from you as a coach.

You can read my experience from CrossFit Strongman Trainer Course below:

If you have been to a coaching course or seminar that you thought was exceptional, please share, thanks!!

Michelle

Very cool but long read. I'd love to do a strongman cert one day.

Yes, It was meant to be short, but the passionate side of me couldn't contain myself!! LOL, lots to talk about. I highly recommend the course or any of the CrossFit Specialty Courses, every one that I've attended was amazing.

Take Care,

Michelle

Great read & review. Admittedly, Strongman isn't exactly my cup of tea, but I can't wait to see your reviews on some of the other certification courses.

Good post and good article...I did the Strongman seminar before I even got my L1 and loved it. Rob Orlando and his crew are great!
