What is Coaching at CrossFit Sioux Falls?

Posted in Crossfit Philosophy on January 13, 2010 by Crossfit Sioux Falls

I got into a discussion with a prospective student about our program and how it can lead to some real life changes. I went on to explain that we provide fitness and nutrition coaching, specifically CrossFit and The Paleo Diet. This got me thinking about what “coaching” really is and why it is so important to the success of our students!

Here’s what I found as a definition of Coaching: “Coaching is a method of directing, instructing and training a person or group of people, with the aim to achieve some goal or develop specific skills. There are many ways to coach, types of coaching and methods to coaching. Sessions are typically one-on-one either in-person or over the telephone. Direction may include motivational speaking. Training may include seminars, workshops, and supervised practice.”

This Wikipedia definition matches the CrossFit Sioux Falls program to a “T”, and really demonstrates what we stand for. Here at CrossFit Sioux Falls, we are a training program that helps each individual reach personal goals while developing fitness, nutrition and lifestyle skills.

Our coaches are here to guide you to get you to your goals and achieve all that you are capable of. We have an open door policy and are here for each and every one of you whenever for whatever you need! So CrossFitters please don’t hesitate to come to us with anything. We love “coaching” all of you!

We know it says the 12th, but it is the 13th day:-)
