At 404, we consider coaching to be the most important part of your CrossFit experience. We require coaches to develop a personal relationship with each athlete to assist in reaching fitness goals. Our coaches understand limitations and will always help find solutions to scale workouts for each athlete.
CrossFit404 equips its coaches with new learning opportunities, certifications and team seminars to bond and collaborate, and brainstorm ideas for improving the gym's collective experience. Interested in coaching with us? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your letter of interest.
