About Carlsbad CrossFit
Challenge yourself today
We are dedicated to deliver the CrossFit program exactly as it is intended: constantly varied, functional movements, performed at a high intensity. We will specialize in not specializing, with our primary focus on each individual athlete’s constant progress through an atmosphere of hands-on training, support, camaraderie and fun.
We care about health and human performance. We care about your health, your performance and your potential. In order to maximize your health and potential you need to train intensely and smartly. To do this safely and efficiently, we follow very basic rules.
Our first rule is to do no harm. Our programming will be constantly varied, but not random. We want you to grow as an athlete, without injury. Overuse injuries can be common in the workplace, the gym, and in sports. We can help prevent these injuries through proper scaling and frequent communication with our trainers
If you are injured or are recovering from a previous injury, we will do what we can to scale our program to accommodate your needs. Our workouts are designed to be inclusive and general, while still providing appropriate challenge for all athletes.
Our second rule is to increase mechanics. We want you to move better. Mastering movement patterns and exercise mechanics before increasing load and intensity will increase your overall performance potential and ensure your safety.
Our third rule is to increase performance. Increasing intensity directly correlates with increasing performance. Intensity is a factor of increasing loads and reps, while decreasing time. Performance is not increased overnight. A structured dedication to training combined with healthy eating and sleeping habits are the key factors for increasing overall athletic performance.
What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.
