For the Sept 15th-16th date:

For the Oct 20th-21st date:

For the Nov 24th-25th date:


The Level 1 provides introductory education on the fundamental principles and movements of CrossFit. It is structured to meet two goals:

1. Provide attendees with the knowledge to better use CrossFit methods for themselves; and

2. Provide attendees with an initial and foundational education to begin training others using CrossFit.

The course includes classroom instruction on these topics, as well as hands-on small-group training for the movements. These group sessions are conducted under low intensity with a focus on improving mechanics. Participants’ movements are observed and corrected, and they engage in dialogue concerning effective coaching techniques. Large-group CrossFit workouts are conducted as an example of bridging the gap from theory to practice. These workouts provide examples of how to:

  • Conduct a class.
  • Hold a standard of proper mechanics at high intensity.
  • Achieve relative high levels of intensity for each individual.
  • Scale for any ability level.


After completing this course and successfully passing the Level 1 Certificate Test, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the core concepts of the CrossFit program.
  2. Identify the primary points of performance of foundational and additional movements.
  3. Identify violations of sound movement.
  4. Apply appropriate corrections toward improved movement.
  5. Apply the CrossFit program safely and effectively.


Participants are eligible for the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Certificate if they:

  • are at least 17 years old at the time of testing;
  • have no outstanding balances for prior CrossFit Certificate or Specialty Courses;
  • have no pending legal cases with CrossFit, Inc.; and
  • have no known documented violations of the Code of Conduct.


To receive a Level 1 Trainer Certificate, one must:

  • Attend the entire two-day course (approximately 9 a.m.-5 p.m. both days), to include:
    • 100 percent exposure to all lectures,
    • 100 percent participation in all practical break-out sessions, and
    • 100 percent participation in all workouts (all workouts can and will be scaled appropriately for individuals with special needs).
  • Pass the Level 1 test in person.
  • Sign the CrossFit Trainer Licensing Agreement.
  • Agree to the policies outlined in the Level 1 Participant Handbook.
  • Agree to the Waiver and Release of Liability.
  • Agree to the Confidentiality Agreement.
  • Pay all course/test fees in full.

If you do not meet these requirements, you are issued a Certificate of Attendance.


Test results are delivered to participants via email five to seven days from the test date.

Individuals receive a pass-or-fail result. No numerical score will be issued.

Trainer certificates are individually mailed and can take up to four weeks to arrive for those living in the United States, and eight to twelve weeks for those living outside the United States. Certificates of attendance are emailed within one month of course attendance.

The FRCF Age Group Event

Want to test yourself against the CF Age Group Qualifier Workouts? Do you want competition conditions, energy in the room, cheering crowds to motivate you to do your very best?

Then this is the event for you.

When: April 21st – 22nd
FRCF will be hosting the CF Age Group Qualifier the weekend of April 21-22 and we will be doing the CF workouts under competition standards with judges.

Anyone can compete, but prizes will be awarded by age group.

We will do doing the workouts that CrossFit Inc puts out for their Age Group Qualifiers. They normally do 4 events over 4 days. We will be doing those events over two days. Two each day. These workouts usually involve muscle-ups and hand-stand pushups. We will allow scaling in this competition, but if you scale, it will obviously knock you out of competition for the overall prizes.

Video Requirements: If you are in the top 200 athletes in your age group in the world, and you are attempting to make the CrossFit Games, we will work with you to make the video requirement happen.

Age Groups:
Anyone, of any age, is eligible to compete in this event.
We will have several different competition categories that will be eligible for prizes.

Junior               Under 18 years old
Senior              18 – 34 years old
Master             35 – 39 years old
Master             40 – 44 years old
Master             45 – 49 years old
Master             50 – 54 years old
Master             55 – 59 years old
Master             60 + years old

Your age will be determined by the age that you will be on July 15th, 2018.

Number of Athletes:
Because of the unknown nature of the workouts (even to us as the organizers of the event) we will limit the number of athletes to 100 athletes. That is a small enough number that we can adjust to whatever CrossFit throws at us.

Most of us do the CrossFit Age Group Qualifier workouts at our gyms. This is an opportunity to do those workouts in a competition setting. I hope that you will join us for this event.

The Do More Charity Challenge 2018

Register: Coming Soon

Compete on behalf of a charity that YOU believe in.

The DMCC is a 6-person, two-day competition.

The first 2 events take place prior to the CF weekend of competition.
1. One of these events involves your team raising funds for your charity of choice.
2. The other event involves social media about your team training and raising funds.

At the end of the two-day CF competition the results are tallied to rank all the teams. EVERY team wins money from a $100,00+ prize purse for their charity. This prize is in addition to the money your team raised in event 1.

The Do More Charity Challenge is the only event in the CrossFit world where you can earn money for your charity of choice with your athletic performance. Last year the DMCC topped $325,000 in funds raised for Colorado Charities. Since its inception 3 years ago, the DMCC has raised over $750,000 of Colorado Charities.

The DMCC Is not just about money. You have to be there to hear the stories from the recipients of the funds, you have to feel the grit of the competitors to know how hard they are fighting, you have to experience the crowd yelling to know what it is all about. It is about a community of CrossFitters fighting for what we feel is important. Fighting to make waves in our communities, to get things done right here at home in Colorado where we can make a difference.

You can start fundraising as soon as you register your team.
Registration opens on May 1st and any money’s raised after you register will count toward your score in Event #1.
