Are you interested in Interning at Black Bolt CrossFit?
Fill out the form below and we will get back to you!
The environment created by a CrossFit gym places unique demands on an instructor, and we expect that all of our trainers have the ability to adapt and place their athletes in a position to progress and succeed both mentally and physically. To ensure the highest level of attention is given to our athletes, Black Bolt CrossFit requires an extensive Internship Program before we agree to let an individual lead a class.
At Black Bolt CrossFit, we identify a qualified coach as someone who can demonstrate adequate knowledge pertaining to the Foundational Movements of CrossFit and all of the CrossFit methodology. A qualified coach should be able to teach, see and correct movements with a relentless attitude, at the same time as being caring and understanding of client’s needs.
The focus of this program is to give the potential coach the tools and knowledge necessary to excel as a CrossFit Level-1 Trainer, and will allow us to evaluate the potential coach’s performance and knowledge, and understanding of the CrossFit culture.
Internship is broken into five phases:
20 hours: MOVE & PRAISE
20 hours: Leading Warm-Up and Cool Down
20 hours: Leading Warm-Up and Strength/Skill or WOD Section
10-15 hours (or more if needed): Intern-lead Classes
10-20 hours: Shadow FULL PT-Fundamentals then LEAD FULL PT-Fundamentals
After each day the Potential Coach will have an assessment meeting with the Director of Operations/Head Coach to review their performance, and will be given valuable feedback on how to improve for the next session. We expect the potential coach to take all advice seriously and to demonstrate constant improvement from session to session.
Owner/Head Coach will have the following three options moving forward:
Not Now - Director of Operations/Head Coach may wish to stop the Internship Program at this time.
Continue - The potential coach will continue with the next phase of the Internship Program; continuing to improve and learn about the coaching standards.
Hire - The potential coach may wish to stop the Internship Program at this time and offer the potential coach a position as an assistant-coach.
Below are the evaluation criteria for the potential coach:
Presence and Attitude
Seeing and Correcting static positions and dynamic movement
Educating and Inspiring the participants
We are looking for professionals who are TRULY passionate about helping others and want to make a difference in their lives! Must be energetic, open-minded to coaching beginners, teens as well as veteran members.
We need someone that can communicate and demonstrate proper technique, encourage and consult with members and have the ability to build positive, long-term relationships!
