Todd Widman is a CrossFit HQ “flow master” who can be seen all over North America and around the world at Level 1 and Level 2 certs. A former Marine from Montana, Widman discovered CrossFit in 2005 and fell in love with the program. Todd’s passion for CrossFit soon had him on a path to becoming one of the top trainers at HQ.
In this three-part series, Todd shares his story with the community.
Part 1 features Todd talking about his first experience with CrossFit and eventually going to a Level 1 cert. His first WOD? Elizabeth with power cleans and dips without rings. The result? Todd was totally crushed but utterly impressed. Then it was on to a Level 1 in San Diego.
In Part 2, Todd talks about how he moved from training elite athletes in the Marine Corps to a few women in his garage to helping out at Level 1 CrossFit certs. Todd’s passion, talent and dedication didn't go unnoticed, and soon he was on his way to becoming an elite coach.
In Part 3, the flow master describes the transition from certs led by Coach to certs led by an elite group of trainers who worked tirelessly to avoid letting Coach down as they shared his material with the rapidly growing CrossFit community. He closes by talking about how aspiring trainers with outstanding skills can become a part of CrossFit HQ’s traveling certification teams.
