I have had the good fortune, honor and pleasure to serve as a coach for 6 years at the CrossFit gym owned by Joe DeGain. He identified me as a candidate to coach after a year of gym membership as an athlete, then mentored me personally for several months preparing me to coach classes on my own.The knowledge I gained while coaching at Joe’s gym was invaluable to me in becoming a better coach: the ability to teach proper technique and movement, being able to spot and correct movement faults, enumerable scaling options, class management, people management skills, etc. In addition, Joe allowed me to develop my own coaching style and stressed that I never stop learning. His continued guidance and training during my coaching tenure has allowed me to move forward with confidence to attain ownership of my own gym. If you are interested in becoming a better coach, I would highly recommend you jump at the opportunity to have Joe DeGain assist in your endeavor.
