Did you know CrossFit Impulse trainers participate in a formal self-education program? Periodically we all read the same book to advance our coaching skills, discuss what we learned as a group, and then move on to the next book.
Now those books are available at CFI for you to check out and read! In addition to the books below, we’ll periodically add new ones as we cover them in our education program. If you see something on the list below that you would like to check out, just let a trainer know. That trainer will take down your name, contact information and the name of the book. After 30 days, return the book to any trainer and they will take you off the list. Athletes may only check out one book at a time, for 30 days at a time. This is just another perk to being a CFI athlete! So grab a book and expand your knowledge!
