Tommy Hackenbruck is an accomplished athlete who’s looking to make his mark as a trainer, too. Hackenbruck, a former linebacker at the University of Utah, finished second to Mikko Salo at the 2009 CrossFit Games, and now he’s tackling another test: the CrossFit Level 2 Certification.
His first time taking the Level 2, Hackenbruck didn’t have a lot of experience training and struggled with a few of the more complex movements. This time around, Tommy is prepared and ready for the rigorous evaluation.
Elite HQ trainer Adrian (Boz) Bozman explains what evaluators are looking for in Level 2 candidates and talks about Tommy’s performance at both certs.
At the end of the cert, Hackenbruck is proud to be both the World’s Second-Fittest Man and a certified Level 2 CrossFit trainer.
