I am first a strength coach, second a CrossFitter. In my 4 years of doing CrossFit, I've found my body does better on a strength-biased program. So I've focused my training and education toward that specific realm. I currently run a conjugate-based strength club alongside another coach at CrossFit SoCal in San Diego.
