Meet Doug Armstrong, Brett Fforde and Drummond Williamson: three of CrossFit’s Australian Seminar Staff trainers. In this clip, they’re at CrossFit Brisbane for a Level 1 Seminar with 53 participants.

“(Our) aim every weekend is to hopefully have people leave half as passionate as we are about CrossFit,” Fforde says.

Regardless of whether you’re a fanatic or it’s your first foray into CrossFit, you will learn something, Armstrong says of the Level 1 course.

“That’s what’s really cool about it,” he says, “is that even though you might be experienced, even though you may have done, like, two years of CrossFit on your own, you are still gonna get a whole lot of stuff in this course.”

The three men say they want to recreate for attendees the experience they had when they took the Level 1 course.

“I think what I enjoyed the most about them is just to see these guys and how (they’re) truly amazing coaches, truly amazing athletes, but they’re just so approachable and so open,” Williamson says.
