Coaches Congress is a forum for those of you that wish to develop your business, either as a coach, or as a micro-gym or box owner.

Coaches Congress started in Stockholm Sweden in 2015. The original concept was developed in order to deliver the best possible content for gym, box owners, and coaches from across the Nordic countries. The goal was to offer content of high standards, and knowledge sharing, as well as keep up with trends within the training industry so that owners and coaches could remain in the forefront.

By 2019, Coaches Congress was happy to welcome participants, exhibitors, and keynote speakers from 15 countries, mainly from Northern Europe, but also from the US and Canada. We have continued to develop the concept every year and have now become, what we believe, is the largest summit for micro-gym owners and coaches in Europe within the functional fitness and CrossFit industry.

Our highly appreciated setup which includes seminars and workshops, as well as many opportunities to listen and learn from each other, is a clear winner and one which will remain while we continue to develop Coaches Congress even further.

Our mission is to provide both owners and coaches with the best possible speakers, motivators, and workshops in order to help them to grow their business, and to be able to serve their customers in a better way.
