CrossFit AEON Coach Development Program
We are looking for motivated CrossFitters who want to go beyond being just an athlete – so that you become someone who is not only knowledgeable and articulate about CrossFit, but you are capable of teaching a great CrossFit class as well!
The Coach Development Program (CDP) has been designed for the ongoing development of a fitness coach. We know there are many of you who are interested in coaching, without having to quit your job or change careers to do so. This program was designed to address both the person who is looking for a career change, and the person who just wants to learn more, share it with others, and teach an amazing class.
The CDP is designed to develop a group of people that will become great substitute coaches, assistant coaches, and perhaps to eventually be part of the CrossFit AEON Coaching team or staff.
Please email us at email@example.com if you are interested in the program and have additional questions.
We look forward to taking this next step with many of you.
Goals of the CrossFit AEON Coach Development Program:
1. To provide our members with the opportunity to further their growth as an athlete and leader by becoming a CrossFit AEON Certifed Coach.
2. To create a core group of student instructors that are both knowledgeable and proficient in the instruction of CrossFit movements and capable of teaching a fun and valuable CrossFit class.
3. There is no cost for this program…but you must be motivated and committed.
The Coach Development Program was designed to help add to our expert coaching staff and have a steady flow of assistant coaches and helpers, some of whom may go on to become lead coaches or work on the operations side of the gym.
We are only looking for people who are responsible, self-starters, motivated, and are ready to learn how to become part of our team and what makes our gym so special.
To become an instructor through our program, the requirements are to complete the Coach Development Program, all associated practical & theory elements and the CrossFit (HQ) Level 1 Certification.. 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 Coach Development Program in no way obligates you to being a full or part time coach/instructor at CrossFit AEON. Completion does not include a CrossFit (HQ) certification, which is will also need to be attained. It also does not guarantee you a position as a regular instructor in the CrossFit AEON schedule.
Each phase of the CDP takes between 3-4 months. Enrollment is not ongoing. We open CDP up for new potential Level 1 Coaches twice (2x) per year. A waiting list is kept through out the year for those that miss the regular enrollment periods.

Coach Development Program Class:
The CrossFit AEON CDP course meets 1x per week during the initial phase . We will hold a class strictly for those people in the CDP. This class will give each member of CDP an opportunity to review proper movement assessments, progressions, safety, coaching cues, and receive constructive criticism on their coaching effectiveness, their ability to organize, motivate and lead a group. Feedback and additional training assignments will be given at each CDP development session.
