We’re excited you’re interested in joining the CrossFit affiliate family!

For anyone interested in opening an affiliate, the applicant must be a Level 1 Certificate holder. Need to get your Level 1? We host them throughout the year, all over the world.


Once you have your CF-L1, it’s time to apply. First, claim your Level 1 Training Certificate. This shows us that you’ve completed and passed your Level 1 test.

Next, we have a few simple essay questions we ask everyone applying for affiliation. You’ll also give us your three top choices for the name of your gym. Once you hit submit, you’ll receive a confirmation email.

And now you wait. We receive a lot of applications every week, so it could take anywhere from two to four weeks to hear back regarding your application. If you have any questions, just email us at affiliatesupport@crossfit.com.
