Who is CrossFit flowmaster Chuck Carswell? Join Sevan Matossian as he captures the day-to-day life of this HQ trainer.
As a flowmaster at Level 1 seminars, Carswell has his hands full orchestrating trainers, lecturing, keeping the proceedings on schedule and handling the top-secret test materials.
“You know, you don’t really get a chance to show what a flowmaster is all about until there’s a challenge, a problem or a schedule change, or somebody’s sick or somebody’s gotta really kind of jump in and fill the shoes of somebody else. That’s when you see what kind of flowmaster you’re kind of dealing with. But you don’t get those scenarios often,” says Carswell, who was a defensive back in the Miami Dolphins organization in the early ’90s.
Watch him in action at a Level 1 seminar in Milan, Italy.
Traveling is an integral part of Carswell’s job. His position takes him away from his home and family nearly every single weekend and sometimes during the week for overseas seminars. It requires amazing dedication, but Carswell also shows that he’s just as dedicated to his family.
Despite the sacrifices, Carswell says he loves CrossFit and his job.
“Besides football, there’s probably not a thing that I could’ve dreamed up that would be more appropriate for me that would fit my personality (and) fit my strengths and my weaknesses,” he says. “I love every minute of it, and hopefully that comes across every weekend at the Level 1s.”
