While he said part-time coaches can provide real value to a gym, CrossFit’s new owner and CEO Eric Roza said we need more full-time, career coaches, who can earn a better living and focus just on coaching.

  • “The best CrossFit coaches, we don’t want them to have to hustle outside of CrossFit. We have had coaches who are bartenders on the side…People who want to coach part-time, it’s great, but people who want to coach full-time and are really good at it, we want to make sure they can do that for sure,” Roza said in an exclusive interview with The Morning Chalk Up last Wednesday following the first CrossFit quarterly Town Hall.
