Instructor Training Program
Here at CFHP we believe that you can do more than you think you can and that people are truly happy when they are growing.
The Crossfit Hyperformance Instructor Training Program (CFHP ITP) addresses the next step in the growth of an athlete - teaching.
ITP is the framework for people interested in taking this next step.
Goals of the CFHP Instructor Training Program
To provide our student body with the opportunity to further their growth as an athlete and leader by becoming a CFHP Certified CrossFit Instructor (Note: This in no way takes the place of a CrossFit Level 1 or Coaches Prep Course.)
To create a core group of student instructors that is both knowledgeable and proficient in the instruction of CrossFit movements and capable of teaching a fun and valuable CrossFit class.
The CFHP ITP was designed with two basic elements in mind: 1) Teach participants how to become good, solid CrossFit instructors; 2) Keep the rules and requirements to a minimum so that the program maintains an air of fun, lightness, growth, camaraderie, and learning.
The program has some definite requirements to keep you progressing toward becoming a better athlete and coach. While the structure may change from program to program, ITP meets at least once a week. The course kicks off with a mandatory weekend day to go over things in a lecture style format. During the following weeks, the focus is to hone your skills coaching actual athletes. This is in place to keep you moving forward so that we know that as a member of the ITP you are committed to becoming an instructor. Other than that, there are very few “handles” to keep you on track. We are only looking for those people that are responsible, self-starters, motivated, and who don’t need hand-holding to keep them on the path.
To become an instructor via our program, the only requirements are participation and to pass the practical test and evaulations. Remember that these are only recommendations. We have designed the program to be completed in as little as 4 weeks and as long as 6 months. The speed at which you move through the program will be determined by your background, experience and diligence in practice and execution.
**Note: Completing the CFHP ITP in no way obligates you to being a full or part time instructor at CFHP. It also does not guarantee you a position as a regular instructor in the CFHP schedule.
