What you get is exactly what we do at CrossFit Roots each day – but you know your athletes, equipment, events, and the strengths and weaknesses of your gym better than anyone. We’re going to give you an excellent product – and then we want you to run with it. Execute it exactly as it’s written, or tweak it to customize it for your members. Our team puts in over 60 hours per month (not including coaching classes!) to get you 99% of the way there. Project Roots will make your athletes and community fitter while allowing you to develop your coaches and grow your business.

Created for the Everyday Athlete

Project Roots is programming designed for the affiliate, not the Games competitor. This population demands the same level of thoughtful planning and individualized coaching as the competitive athlete and Project Roots delivers this to the group class setting.

The Highest Level Coaches

Project Roots is led by Certified Crossfit Coach (CF-L4), former CrossFit Headquarters Seminar Staff Flowmaster, and Roots’ founder Nicole Christensen. EC Synkowski is the mastermind behind the programming and the supporting team is comprised entirely of Certified CrossFit Trainers (CF-L3) and Coaches (CF-L4) who coach weekly group classes and have written daily class plans for over six years.

Product Tested at CrossFit Roots

We don’t just write programming – we make sure that it works within the structure of an hour group class. Our team takes group classes and coaches and evaluates the WOD Plans they write. Every workout and WOD Plan is product tested the month prior at CrossFit Roots in our own group classes.

What Our Clients Say

Literally, this is the most fun I’ve had doing CrossFit and coaching. You guys are crushing the affiliate game.

60 Hours a Month to Run a Great Class

Project Roots was born out of what seemed like a simple effort 7 years ago. In an attempt to provide consistency and planning across all group classes of the day at CrossFit Roots, Shane Upchurch and I began to trade off writing a WOD Plan for every class. Whoever was...
