Thank you for choosing CrossFit Palo Alto, the best CrossFit Gym for your fitness needs. CFPA provides clients with a personal training experience in a group setting while delivering comprehensive health and fitness programming. With experience in training National level athletes, ultra-marathon runners of 50 and 100 mile races, elite SWAT Team members, at-home moms and grandparents, we have developed a fitness program that is second to none. We provide a general conditioning programming that includes injury prevention training and coaching. Our focus is a core strength and conditioning program that is constantly varied to create a stimulus like no other.
CFPA begins your training with a FREE Introductory Session where we tell you what CrossFit is, what it isn’t and how we do it. We then have a brief instruction period followed by a quick workout. Afterwards, we will determine the training plan most suitable for you based upon your fitness goals and abilities. You should expect gradual progress in achieving your goals. Our bodies adjust to physical stresses slowly. It’s important, therefore, that you remain patient during the entire process and expect results over an extended period. The keywords in physical training are patience, consistency, and more patience! It is also why we require a 3 month minimum commitment when you start out. Adjusting to the changes in your training and lifestyle takes time and while we invest a large amount of time and effort into getting you started, we expect the same in return.
The Purpose of this training is to improve not only your performance, but also your life! Our research and development over the years in training for ourselves and others has been aimed at getting us, and you, to our fitness goals, regardless of our potential athletic ability. The training that we have learned is designed to provide you with the proper means to achieve your desired results with these goals.
We are extremely proud of the clients/athletes we have trained over the years and their continued commitment to a healthier, more efficient lifestyle. We consider each of these people, including you, an athlete! We must stress that as an athlete you are ultimately responsible for your own performance. Therefore, while you engage in this training with us, we will expect you to be doing the following when not with us:
- Stretching several times a week in short duration.
- Self-Massage/Rolling out/Massage.
- Eating responsibly!!! Balanced Nutrition!!! YES WE COUNSEL THIS!
- Ask Questions when you don’t understand something!
- 100% Effort
- Enjoyment of the process
Results are not guaranteed; THEY ARE EARNED!
How We Do It:
Our coaches are very passionate about what they do and will spend a lot of time and energy to make you successful. We ask for one thing before you start…a solid commitment. We want long term life members to join our fitness family.
For consistency of training and maximum benefit, we use an “appointment-based” scheduling system, where each member joins a monthly program that meets at the same day/time for the month (for instance: MWF, 5pm). At the end of each month, one may switch to a different program (with a different schedule) if desired. Classes are 1 hour in length. Our schedule of classes can be found HERE.
Please DO NOT just show up to “see what CrossFit is about.” Our coaches will be focused on their class and will not be able to give you the attention you deserve. Follow the steps for Getting Started.
