What Exactly Is Crossfit?

CrossFit is a "lifestyle" characterized by safe, effective exercise and sound nutrition. CrossFit can be used to accomplish any goal, from improved health to weight loss to better performance. The program works for everyone — people who are just starting out and people who have trained for years.

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 soldiers, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen. Thousands of athletes worldwide have followed CrossFit workouts posted daily on its site, and distinguished themselves in combat, the streets, the ring, stadiums, gyms and homes.

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. CrossFit is "the sport of fitness".  

Why Choose CrossFit Watsonville?

We know there are many choices out there when it comes to fitness – we are in fact, bombarded by these choices on a daily basis. At CrossFit Watsonville, we try to offer something different. We are a community first and foremost. CrossFit Watsonville was started by a group of trainers with years of strength and conditioning experience that were sick of the same old gym experience: “check-in at the front desk, put on your ipod, zone out on some cardio machine, lift a few weights, go home”. We wanted something better, something fun, something effective, and most of all, a place we could call home. CrossFit Watsonville provides a family atmosphere and a motivating, inspirational place to achieve your fitness goals. We like to have fun, but we are also serious about our fitness – we ask the same of our clients. It doesn’t matter whether you are deadlifting 5 lbs or 500 lbs, as long as you are pushing your own personal limits we will be right there with you, helping you crush your goals. 

CrossFit Watsonville can and will change your life – if you want to see how, just come on down and take a free class with us.

Intensity – The CrossFit Manifesto

Intensity is the CrossFit manifesto, its El Dorado, its Holy Grail. In CrossFit we are engaged in a constant quest for higher intensity. Intensity translates into results–faster times, heavier weights, more reps, greater fitness. Intensity is what separates us from all the other gyms. We have no machines, no mirrors, no cables, no chrome, no supplements, no gimmicks, no 7 minute ab routines. In short, no bullshit. We have intensity. We teach technique, stress proper form, write the workout on the board, click the start button on the stopwatch, and 3...2...1...set you free. And while you may not set any records, you are in the fight of your life. Each and every workout. Your heart will bounce off your ribcage, your muscles will betray you, your spirit will struggle, and afterwards, when you get off the floor–beat, and tired, you may have a smile on your face–you will have achieved what you thought was not possible. That is what we mean by intensity. Welcome to CrossFit Watsonville. We are serious, savage even, about our fitness. Real fitness. Functional fitness. Fitness that will make you stronger, faster, leaner, and healthier than you could dream of. You will also work harder than you ever dreamt you could and see results you never thought possible. Come check us out. You will either love it or hate it. If you love it, jump down the rabbit hole with us. If not, walk away, go back to your split routines, your body part days, your machines, always knowing in the back of your mind, that there is something out there that might be better and could change your life if you choose to accept the challenge.
