At CrossFit San Elijo, we specialize in easing you into a new way of experiencing fitness, and you WILL experience lifelong results. Take a moment to fill out the contact form below and let's start this journey by having you join us for a free "Intro to CrossFit" session with one of our experienced Coaches. For those with previous CrossFit experience, contact us to join a free group class.
Your session will last about 45 minutes long, and start with a "get to know you" conversation about where you've been, and where you want to go. From there, we'll do a light warmup, teach you the CrossFit foundational movements, and introduce a Workout of the Day (WOD) that is uniquely designed to "meet you where you're at" from a conditioning perspective. We'lll teach you how to Squat, Press, and Lift with sound mechanics, with an emphasis on Virtuosity, otherwise known as CrossFit's mantra: "doing the uncommon, commonly well." You'll leave your Intro Class with a sense of purpose and be equipped to join our regular classes. It's the same workout we introduce to our kids, our grandparents, and our Navy Seals!
No where else will you find a highly coached and supportive environment that teaches you the true meaning of fitness; covering all measures from agility to endurance to power. Join our team by selecting a membership that's right for you. From the stay-at-home mom and single dad, to the Firefighter and Recon Marine, our box supports and motivates athletes of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes. We enhance and supplement your current training plan or can be the sole focus of your fitness regiment. There are many options available from group classes, clinics, Olympic Lifting and Kids' Camps too!
CrossFit San Elijo is not about reinventing the wheel, though we do hope to breakdown and leap over the traditional model of fitness built on body-building mentalities, isolation movements, and extended aerobic sessions. CrossFit San Elijo is about shedding the "big box" stigma of the traditional gym settings and turning back to the rugged and raw foundations of exercise. Most importantly, this means removing the machines from the gym floors and opening up space for movement and true fitness.
The philosophy of CrossFit San Elijo is that fitness is a life-long commitment that requires continuous education and consistent devotion to improvement. It is easy in our journey of fitness to become stagnant, however individuals must fight through complacency and find ways to constantly rejuvenate their pursuits in health and fitness. CrossFit San Elijo wants to spark this rediscovery for individuals by offering the ability to join not only a gym, but a Community. CrossFit San Elijo believes that one of the greatest benefits of fitness is the opportunity to build relationships and network. As a result, we look to embrace a communal approach to fitness characterized by reciprocal relationships amongst members, staff, health professionals, and the greater fitness community. Our motto is "come early, stay late." Something about the way a fellow mate will reach out a hand, be there to cheer you on, and be vested in your success, seems different from other environments. At CrossFit San Elijo, we all came through the door the same way. And since we share this kinship, the bonds are lasting and real.
No. CrossFit is for people of all fitness levels, from the complete beginner to an advanced athlete. CrossFit is unique in its universal scalability, meaning two people at completely different fitness levels can perform the same workout using movements best suited to each of their individual capabilities. At CrossFit San Elijo, we specialize in introducing the movements, philosophy, and intensity that define CrossFit in a safe, and highly coached environment. Make no mistake: CrossFit, if you allow it, will push you to the margins of your experience--and you will be the better for it. We all came through the same gateway.
New Members at Crossfit San Elijo often first are amazed at the size of our space. What members quickly find is that world class fitness occurs here. At CrossFit San Elijo, most of what you will see when you come to the gym is open space. Our "machines" are free weights--to use them requires skill, balance, stabilization, proprioception, and accuracy. The skills and movemements that we teach are all functional and multi-joint (require movement across 2 or more joints in your body.) These neuromuscular activities are commonplace in both life and in sport, and since our objective in training is to mimic both, we find that free weights, with proper instruction and coaching, do this best.
