The CDP 6-Week
Lesson Planning Group
We believe that a Trainer who is attempting to operate at their highest level takes Lesson Planning seriously. We subscribe to the assertion that, "Failing to plan is planning to fail," because we have experienced it for ourselves.
In our own coaching, and in our endeavours to coach other coaches, we have seen it again and again...
Those who wish to execute on the mission of delivering the CrossFit methodology to their athletes and clients are better able to do so with a purposeful plan in place.
But...how do we do that? Few coaches are asked to practice this regularly, and even fewer are given a framework for how to do so. Our goal is to demystify this process and give you real, actionable objectives that you can put into practice in your daily coaching. We'll cover the entire lesson planning process piece by piece, examining each component and helping you to take your own lesson plans to the next level, whether you just started or you've been doing it for years.

What can I expect from this Lesson Planning Group?
The Entry-Level Trainer...
Will receive a step-by-step yet flexible framework for how to design and implement an effective lesson plan for a 60-minute class
The Mid-Level Trainer...
Will receive the understanding necessary to take their own lesson plans (and coaching) to the next level, building upon a solid foundation and enabling the trainer to branch out into new coaching territory.
The Seasoned Trainer...
Will receive a hard fundamentals reset, and then guidance on how to move forward from that reset to better reach and affect clients at ANY experience and ability level...
The Lesson Planning Group includes:
Six 1-hour, small-group calls (one per week), each of which focuses on a different aspect of effective lesson planning. The small group setting allows for individual questions and answers, as well as discussion and sharing of each participants experiences.
After 2 weeks, you'll get a 30 minute, 1-on-1 call with Denise Thomas to discuss your progress, answer your questions, and provide individualized guidance. We'll do another 30-minute 1-on-1 call after 4th week as well!
Weekly assignments relating to each call's topic to help you put your new knowledge into practice!
A private Slack channel for you and the rest of your cohort for you to chat, trade information and experiences, and ask questions of each other (as well as connecting off-call with the CDP).
At the completion of the program, you'll receive another 30 minute, 1-on-1 cal with Denise to help you reflect on your experience and provide recommendations on the next steps in your individual journey!
