Intro to CrossFit

At CrossFit Golden Gate you’ll find programming that combines gymnastics, weightlifting, calisthenics, plyometrics, rope climbing, rowing, kettlebells, running and anything fun we can cook up.  Our goal is to provide an engaging and challenging fitness experience that increases your strength, endurance, and mobility.



CrossFit is a universally scalable strength and conditioning fitness program designed to be broad, general, and inclusive.  It relates to a variety of physical efforts, ranging from lifting a heavy barbell to climbing ropes or doing pullups.  It is all encompassing and entirely unspecialized to build fitness capacities across many functional applications.  It builds a balanced athlete by utilizing a variety of movements from gymnastics and weightlifting to sprinting and rowing.

CrossFit is designed to be useful for everyone regardless of age or ability level.  It’s universally scalable so anybody can use it to improve fitness and develop strength.  CrossFit improves your fitness by increasing your work capacity across broad time and modal domains using workouts designed to have constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity.

CrossFit develops fitness using functional movements that mimic real life work and movements that can’t be replicated with your typical gym machines.  It is for all ages and ability levels.  With CrossFit we can easily measure results, track progress, and see improvements.
