LMI Fitness is happy to be opening our Advanced Theory Course for current members interested in seeing what goes on behind the scenes. This program is intended to educate members to get them thinking about training from a different point-of-view. This will give insight into how and why we program our workouts, how we scale, how we teach movements, and then get into how to coach and run a class. This course is one of the requirements to becoming a coach at LMI Fitness, but keep in mind that this doesn’t mean we will bring you on as a coach upon completion nor does it mean you MUST be interested in coaching.
Going through this course will give you better insight into your own fitness knowledge, allowing you to understand the purpose behind what we do so that you can get more out of it. This will give you insights into scaling to accommodate different levels of strength and even injury. This program is intended to open your eyes to the possibility of training people as a part time or even potentially as employment down the road. There really is nothing more satisfying than knowing that you are able to help someone achieve their goals especially when they tell you that it is something that they struggle with.
This course is not compensated, but it also doesn’t cost extra money so you will still be expected to pay your membership and participate in CrossFit classes. There is a REQUIREMENT to record a video about your CrossFit experience. We’ll give more details on this at during the first week.
The first 5 weeks will focus on 1 hour class room sessions plus a 30 minute workout session. These sessions occur once each week and will go over the basics of CrossFit methodology. In addition to classroom learning, homework will be assigned (generally reading) for discussion the next week.
