Did you know that CrossFit Malibu is owned and run by CFL-3’s? That means BOTH of the coaches running your day-to-day training session are CrossFit Level 3 Certified Trainers. We also both hold undergraduate degrees in sports medicine. There might not be a gym in the entire Los Angeles area that can claim these distinctions! The CFL-3 is the highest designation offered to the public (CrossFit Headquarters has about 75 CFL-4 Certified Coaches on the books- but the path to attain that credential is not yet open to the masses as we understand it).
Congratulations to Kolby in passing his CFL-3 exam last week! This is a test that requires a minimum of 750 hours of CrossFit coaching in addition to already having passed the level 1 and level 2 courses. And of course it demands thorough knowledge of the subject matter. The test has a fairly low pass rate (we have been told) because of its breadth of material and level of difficulty- ain’t no way to fake your way through this test! According to the CrossFit Trainer Directory there are currently about 700 CFL-3s worldwide.
While we CERTAINLY understand that no certification or list of letters behind a name can guarantee a positive, safe, and/or effective training environment… it does demonstrate our ongoing committment to continuing education so that we can continue to evolve and bring everything we can to make YOU fitter, healthier, and more productive!
