Welcome Derrick!


If you worked out last week, chances are you got to meet CrossFit Hierarchy’s newest coach, Derrick Fields!

Derrick has been coaching CrossFit since 2012 and has worked with athletes at a number of  DC boxes, including CrossFit DC, CrossFit Capitol Hill and CrossFit Praxis. In addition to his CF-L1, he is also holds a CrossFit Olympic Lifting certification and — like all Hierarchy coaches — is seriously passionate about helping athletes exceed beyond what they ever thought was possible. We’re beyond thrilled to have Derrick join our team — he brings the same high level of coaching you’ve come to expect from CFH. Here’s hoping he can also bring some diversity to the music selection…

Derrick will be leading both morning and evening classes, so be sure to welcome  to the CrossFit Hierarchy community next time you see him! You can also email him at


So much love to all the awesome Hierarchy members that came out IN FORCE to support the CAL team at home this weekend! You guys are what makes this place so special, you rock!
