Introducing CrossFit 858


CrossFit 858 will provide fun, top notch, community based fitness training and will help you meet YOUR individual goals. (Not your “Globo gym” or “Big Box” trainer’s goals) Whether it’s to lose weight or put on muscle, when overall fitness comes first all else will follow.

All workouts can be performed “as prescribed” or scaled to your individual capacity. Whether you are an elite athlete or a couch potato trying to get back in shape, all levels of fitness are not only accepted but encouraged. You do not have to “be in shape first” to try CrossFit.

CrossFit 858 has nearly 4,000 square feet of functional space providing functional fitness to the San Diego community. Conveniently located in the middle of Miramar Rd (just East of the Pyramid), CrossFit 858 will be serving residents in UTC, Mira Mesa, and Miramar along with commuters to UTC from Rancho Bernardo, Mission Valley and surrounding areas.

Come in today and see what you’ve been missing out on….

Our community is waiting for you.

ATG Barbell Club News


ATG BARBELL

 

ATG Barbell Club was created almost a year and a half ago as an added service for those who wanted to improve their Olympic Weightlifting skills.

For those paying barbell club members, we saw their lifts sky rocket up due to their improved understanding of lifting mechanics and designated time to focus on these lifts.

Their gains not only reflected in their lifts, but also translated over to their WODs.  Barbell club attendees saw themselves going Rx for the first time, or more consistently.  Athletes saw themselves able to lift longer/more due to more efficient movement.

The time spent at the barbell club paid off for these athletes since Olympic lifting is a large chunk (but not all) of what we do at CrossFit.

This summer, to create more interest in ATG Barbell Club, I made the club FREE to all members of CrossFit 858.  This saw a larger uptake of the club, and this 3 month experiment yielded excellent results.  Even more athletes experienced the benefits I already mentioned, but now we saw athletes with various tenure at the gym.  Those experienced veterans were able to break old PRs, those new athletes were able to increase their growth curve and become better lifters, faster.

What started off as an experiment to see if we could generate more interest and business has yielded an obvious result:

ATG Barbell Club is now FREE with your CrossFit 858 membership.

The progress shown by those athletes, both experienced and new, speaks more loudly than any increase in revenue that I could obtain as gym owner.  I created this place to make you more fit and better athletes, and the cost of running this extra program is dwarfed by the gains the athletes obtain.

So with that said, enjoy ATG Barbell Club.  Here are some reminders/rules for the club:

  • Remember, it is NOT for elite lifters, and IS recommended for athletes of all levels.
  • There’s another misconception that it is not as much of a “workout” as the normal WODs, and that isn’t true either.  We don’t recommend you do a WOD and the barbell club on the same day!
  • ATG is every Thursday at 7pm and Saturday at 10am!
  • Again, ATG is FREE to all CrossFit 858 members!
