High-quality coaching her own words:
As a CrossFit coach, it is our highest priority to ensure that our members are making progress on their fitness journey. In order to accomplish that, the coach needs to be knowledgeable about the CrossFit concepts in general, but more importantly, about each particular member’s current skill level. A good coach will recommend the appropriate scaling options for each athlete and knows when an is safe to do a workout Rx or when it is time to scale in order to keep all athletes moving well with no injuries.
