CrossFit Gymnastics Course

Tuesday April 9, 2019

CrossFit Gymnastics Course coming to Crossfit Livermore. September 28-29, 2019


Course Description

This interactive two-day course for both coaches and athletes covers basic, intermediate and advanced gymnastics movements in a lecture setting, with practical application following as participants and coaches perform all presented movements. Skills are repeated until the student has an understanding of how to learn, spot and teach all movements safely to athletes of any level; gymnastics programming is also discussed. Course participants learn to apply gymnastics principles in training themselves and others to increase strength development, core control and spatial awareness – all of which improve fitness performance, including CrossFit.
